Pregnant with baby number two and I would like to VBAC. First baby was delivered at Good Sam, with a midwife, who no longer delivers. I'm not even exactly sure why I had the c-section, I felt so out of control like I had no choice about anything.
So I'm looking for a VBAC friendly OB or CNM that delivers at the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ. I really would appreciate any and all recommendations and your experiences with Valley. Currently, I'm waiting to hear back from their Holistic Birth consultant.
Maybe you could try emailing a doula in the Ridgewood area? The area doulas usually know the scoop on local care providers, and if you are up front that you are seeking info and not neccessarily services, she might be willing to give you some good leads. Only caveat is, Valley Hospital has on-call doulas, so I am not sure how many private doulas have been there. Also, check out the nearest ICAN group- I am sure they can help you find a VBAC friendly provider. Best wishes!
