Has anyone had a hospital VBAMC in Mi? I cannot homebirth because I'm high risk :( I know it's far-fetched but just curious if anyone ever found an OB that went along with it?

I've attended vbamc at UofM.  I think with 2 c-sections you could see the midwives and with more you could see the OBs.  I think if you have only had two c-sections you could also see the midwives at Henry Ford West Bloomfield.  Dr. Philip Fleming at St. Joe Ann Arbor would also be a good choice.

A few years ago Dr. Fleming was on board to do a VBA2C for me (until a bleeding previa got in the way greensad.gif ) Although he has since told me St. Joes is not as easy going about allowing them. It's worth a shot though.
Just curious are you too high risk for a midwife because of the c/s's?

I am high risk because after my last homebirth attempt I have since had 2 second trimester losses and am now on Lovenox 2x/day for a clotting disorder.  Otherwise I would do a HBA3C.  I was told because I was induced for each baby that passed away in the second trimester and my didn't have any issues with rupture that I may be considered to try for a vba3c but I'm very skeptical of this because of obvious reasons.  My MFM Dr's are the ones that said they would probably go for the vba3c attempt if I made it full term with this pregnancy but I want to make sure I am giving every attempt to find another OB if needed for delivery since I can still follow with the MFM Dr's and have another OB deliver. When I was induced for my losses both were at St Joseph in Ypsi and they made me be on the stupid contraction monitor in bed the whole time because of the induction and my 3 csections which sucked.  I know I'm going to have to do things I'm not happy with regardless but if I at least get a vaginal birth I can deal with being strapped to a bed, just wouldn't be happy about it!
