Hello. I am expecting my fifth child, due in December, and am considering giving birth at U of M with the midwives. #1 was a c/s. #2 was a hospital VBAC. #3 and #4 were both unassisted home waterbirths. Do they allow waterbirths for VBAC patients? I have an appointment with Joanne Bailey next month, but thought I'd throw this question out there, in case someone could answer for me :) Thanks!
Just bumping so you can get some more views and hopefully someone with some info on this will see it!

I'm not sure if they do water birth for VBAC or not, but I wanted to say that I saw JoAnne twice while my midwife was out with a broken arm, and she was AMAZING!!!! Very respectful of my views, anwsered any questions I had with inteligent responces.
I was asking about the gestational diabeties test, I didn't really want to drink the nasty drink if I didn't need to, and we desided to do a fasting blood draw (since I needed to do this anyways for other reasons) and go from there. VERY respectful to my I always keep my pants on policy. I'm 28 weeks and haven't taken them off yet :) Also there was NO pushing to do any tests, but the willingness to do them if I wanted them was there!! I don't have enough nice words about her!!

Hmm I'm not sure! I just gave birth there (again!) in March, and the new facility is gorgeous! I was still using an OB this time, but next time, midwife for sure! I was also pleasantly surprised how great they were about me birthing however I wanted to. I was able to get up and move around, they followed my birth plan to a tee, it was great! Good luck! :) (and Go Blue!)
