Hello,
i live in Seattle and love my midwife but since I had to have a C-section for my first birth, my only option is a hospital birth (in this state unless I want a homebirth but i'm super high risk). Can anyone recommend an incredible Certified Nurse Midwife with lots of VBAC experience?????? I had a recommendation for Cynthia Brown but she's already booked for next summer .
Please help.....

I've heard mixed reviews for Sally Avenson, but like Cynthia she has priviledges at Group Health.

Happily married to my dh, mama to ds1 (01/2005), ds2 (07/2007)  and dd (07/2009).

There are home birth midwives that will attend VBACs in Washington. It is not illegal, they are just not covered by malpractice insurance for those births.

The CNMs at the Center for Women's Health at Evergreen Hospital attend VBACs. You'd have to go to Kirkland, though.

I'm using the midwives at Neighborcare Health for my VBAC (I see Ann Darlington), and have been happy with them. They deliver at Group Health.

I saw the CNMs at the Center for Women's Health at Evergreen for my VBAC and had a really good experience with them. I saw Janice the most during my pregnancy and was lucky enough to have her be the one oncall when I was in labor. She was awesome the entire 22 hours she was with me.
