<p>Hey mamas,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am posting on behalf of a friend. She is pregnant with her second, first was born via c-section, and she would like to go for a v-bac this time around. So far the Dr's she has spoken to are all kinda "well you had a c-sec so we have to do it again". She is 16 weeks and is getting a bit nervous about not having a set Dr yet. If anyone has any recommendations for the greater Seattle area that would be awesome.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks</p>

<p>I don't know if she does them, but Angela Chien at Evergreen seems to be a very accomidating OB.  I've had a couple of friends birth with her who were allowed to do things less "conventionally", even in a hopsital.  <a href="http://www.evergreenhospital.org/body.cfm?xyzpdqabc=0&id=407&action=detail&ref=13864" target="_blank">http://www.evergreenhospital.org/body.cfm?xyzpdqabc=0&id=407&action=detail&ref=13864</a></p>

<p>There are many hospital midwife choices for your friend, as well as OBs. See if she'd be willing to go to an ICAN meeting, you could offer to attend with her. You can join the yahoo chat group for the Seattle group at the link below, and it's been very helpful for me.</p>
