Hi all,

We just moved to Grand Rapids area and i'm currently 30 weeks pregnant. Can any one recommend VBAC friend hospitals? I've already been shot down pretty harshly by spectrum...

Thanks!

I just sent you a PM with an email of someone who might be able to help. I'm over in Gaylord and not familiar with the providers near you.

The standard in GR is no-VBAC.. but if you find a good provider - they are still do-able. Feel free to contact me privately and I can give you my experiences here.

Look at home birth! There aren't many dr that will let you try for a vbac. There are a lot that will bait and switch you. If you are going to a hospital find a DOULA! Sage birth co-op has great doulas that can help with getting you a Vbac. My thoughts are with you!

Do any of you Grand Rapids mommas know of a local group or online group that discusses local pediatricians, midwives, etc.?  Moving to the GR area and new to all of it with no direction for natural parenting/birth, etc.... hoping that someone can share local resources around there!  Thanks so much!
