Hi. I am still considering vbac at the birthplace at Jordan. Does anyone know what the policies are surrounding particularly being able to be in  nwater or having to be on constant monitoring  I have my first appointment next week so I want to know what questions to ask.

Thanks.

I toured with a midwife there - you can't use the regular tubs in the rooms, but they have a slightly bigger room with a birthing tub that you can use, which was a nice option.  I don't think you have to do constant monitoring, but not positive...you do need to have a Hep-lock.  Everything seemed very VBAC friendly.

I considered Jordan for my daughter's birth- and it was not a vbac- but I remember that then there was only 1 birth pool. So you definitely want to know how to optimize your chances for the pool.  I didn't use a tub very well for my first birth- I was too impatient and I didn't think of filling it ALL the way up.  I did utilize the tub better for my 2nd birth- and even though it wasn't a birthing pool, it was still amazing.  I sure wish I had calmed down enough to fill up the tub ALL the way but sometimes the most obvious things escape you in the moment  (especially when the support I had didn't have a clue I was freaking out) .

I heard they do require hep-lock for vbac's.   Definitely ask at your appointment!  Take it one step further, if something is troubling to do-- 'what happens if I refuse that or if I'm uncomfortable with that?'  They do have to have your consent for anything they do and some things you might be able to decline.

I hope your appointment goes well!
