My friend is due with #3 in July. Her first was a med-free waterbirth in the hospital. The second was a cesarean birth because baby was breech (2.5 years ago). Her current OB says no to VBACs. My friend really wants a VBAC. Can you help her?<br><br>
She is in Temecula, Riverside County. She's willing to drive an hour or so. Her husband does not want a homebirth (though she does), but he would consider a birth center.<br><br>
If you have any contacts, experience, insight... please pass it on!

she's probably about an hour from the birth center here in San Diego. I don't know their VBAC policy, but she could call and find out! here's the link<br><br><a href="http://www.beststartbirthcenter.com/" target="_blank">http://www.beststartbirthcenter.com/</a>

<span><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';">I'm currently in Temecula if your friend needs anyone to talk to! I just had my 2nd HBAC (Homebirth after C-Section). Unfortunately, a lot of hospitals are going w/a NO VBAC rule, but if anyone would know a VBAC friendly OB, it would be Tonya at the San Diego ICAN. The birth centers follow hospital protocal, so no VBAC's there either, which is why we chose homebirth. My DH was also against it at first, but is now an avid AND vocal supporter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Again, I would be more than happy to help out your friend, she or you can email me anytime</span></span> <a href="mailto:[email protected]">Kim's e-mail</a>

No, they don't do VBACs unfortunatly.<br><br>
I had a lot of trouble finding an OB I can trust (let alone do a VBAC) and I couldn't find a midwife who would do one that my insurance will pay for. So, I'm going with the option of UBAC (unassisted birth after cecerean). But, if her husband is firm against homebirth then I don't know if that will be right for them. But, it IS a little known option (I think there is a UBAC thread on this site somewhere).<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> to your friend. I hope she finds something that works for her. One cecerean is bad enough.
