Hi all--my partner and I are expecting our 3rd baby in November (we have 4 1/2 year old twins), and she had a myomectomy (fibroid removal) several years ago, via a c-section like incision. So basically, she has a c-section without a darn baby! Am wondering if anyone knows of a CNM/ARNP in the Seattle area that encourages vaginal births despite this history. Thanks, S

I don't have any help, just support! I had the same thing 13 years ago and went on to have 5 normal vaginal births, two at home. Good luck!

I would check out Lake Washington Midwives. You will get upfront and personal service. They are amazing. We just had our 3rd baby with Ali, and even though we are basically done, I would totally have another babe just to have them attend me and the baby. They have amazing energy.


You could also check out Suzanne Thompson, I know she does Vbacs, but she is also very busy and may not give your unique situation the attention you deserve.
