 Hi. Thanks for the suggestions about vbac. I have an appointment set up for the beginning of April with the midwives at Jordan, and am still looking into NWH. I am trying to set up a meeting with one home birth midwife in my area, and am planning to try  to meet with the other as well. I would definitely be open to Dr Hardiman if anyone has any experience with her, or with any other ofthese providers feel free to PM me. I have tried to meet with Dr. Hardiman in the past, and have never been able to get in to see her though, so I don't hold out much hope in that direction, and I am more comfortable with midwives, but again, I am keeping a totally open mind for all options in this pregnancy. thanks for the good wishes and suggestions.

I met with The midwives at Jordan the other day and then went to the hospital for a tour with one of the midwives.  They give tours the third Saturday of each month, but they will give you a private tour if you call the morning you want to go and they are not busy.  Worked out fine for me.  Jordan is really the only VBAC option for me, as homebirth is just too expensive...I have met Shelly, Agnes, and Hope, and they were all great.  Seems as though the approach there is good and that VBACs are going well...You do have to have a Hep-lock, though...Good luck!

Also, would love to know what you find out/how you feel about things.  PM me as you go!  The VBAC battle can be a very lonely one!
