I had a (largely unnecessary) C-section with my first child in Pennsylvania, and I'd like to have a VBAC with my next one -- I'm due in late July with my next one. After yet another frustrating appointment with my current doc, I've decided that it's time to start searching for a new one. It'd be great to find a good, competent doctor in the Cincinnati area who was willing to consider it. In an ideal world, this doctor would also be in the Humana network.<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Dr. Bowen. Dr. Bowen. Dr. Bowen. He ROCKS. He is the ONLY doc I refer to for a mama wanting a hospital vbac. He is supportive of VBAmC and homebirth as well.

My doctor is Dr. Caligaris and he is amazing. He is supportive of VBAC, but only if you can go into labor yourself. And, only if you deliver at Christ. The other hospitals, supposedly, don't allow it, nor do they allow inducing VBACs.<br><br>
Now, does Dr. Bowen "allow" VBA2C? I may have a need for that in the future. Dr. Caligaris didn't say he won't allow it, but his nurse alluded to it.

Yes, Dr. Bowen does attend VBA2C. And other hospitals definitely do allow VBAC and induction of VBAC.<br><br>
Just out of curiosity, what practice is Dr. Caligaris with and what do you mean by he is supportive if you "can go into labor by yourself"? What's the time frame? By your due date?
