DH and I are starting to think about conceiving #3, but I would like to find a VBA2C friendly provider first. I have heard good things about Dr. Garfinkel, Dr. Banks, and Dr. Parchment. I'm wondering if any mom's can share their experiences (good or bad) with any of these doctors. Thanks!

A friend of mine had a lovely VBAC (after 1C) with Dr. Parchment. She has nothing but good things to say about her, and about Mountainside hospital.

It is definitely hard to find a doc who would be pro VBAC with two prior C/S as the risk of rupture goes up with each prior C/S and that ACOG recs are not really decisive about whether it this is a safe cadidate, but not impossible. But make sure you are at a hospital with 24hr anesthesia and an OB in house in case of emergency (just FYI...Mountainside does not)

Dr Banks said she would be willing to support me in a VBA2C. I did have a vaginal birth though so that might have something to do with it.  However, she is a nice woman and I would definitely suggest interviewing her.

 

ACOG's latest recommendations so suggest that women with 2 c-sections be considered for VBAC.  They also lifted their recommendations about immediate accessibility of anesthesia.  http://www.acog.org/About%20ACOG/News%20Room/News%20Releases/2010/Ob%20Gyns%20Issue%20Less%20Restrictive%20VBAC%20Guidelines.aspx

 

Latest research shows that the risk of uterine rupture in a  VBAC after more than 1 c-section is not significantly higher than in VBA1C.  Every pregnant woman has potential risks during labor and childbirth.    Every woman with broke membranes  has a risk of cord prolapse or severe fetal distress.  Somehow hospital manage to handle it.  If a hospital is not safe to VBAC in, it's not safe to birth in at all.

I had a wonderful VBAC experience with Dr parchment.  I had several "risk factors," and transferred to her care at 37 weeks and she didn't bat an eyelash.  Please PM me if you'd like specifics.  But definitely a strong recommendation from me.

 

Good Luck!!

Bonnie

David Garfinkel did my VBAC (but my HB midwife was there also). He's good, if a little twitchywink1.gif, I really felt like my midwife and I were in charge though, and he just did the glory bit.  I have recommended him to other people.
