Hi there. I just found out last night I am pregnant with my 5th child. I am due July 29th. I have had 3 sections, including one attempted homebirth. I refuse to sign up for another one. I am looking for a midwife now. We have a wonderful midwife climate here in Michigan, so I dont think it will be to hard. Ill be hanging out! Just wanted to introduce myself.<br><br>
I am Erika. I have twins who are 4, a 3 year old son and a 16 month old son. I am from Michigan, but I got pregnant on my 5th wedding anniversary down in Tennessee <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I am 24 and a christian. My husband is a sunday school teacher and is going to be a missionary.

Wow, good luck! Here in Nevada only 2 doctors in the entire valley will even CONSIDER doing a VBAC, and even then discourage it strongly. Healthcare here is so backward.<br><br>
It blows my mind that you could actually find a midwife willing to do a VBAC! Maybe I should move to Michigan...

Hi Erika! This will be #5 for me too, although mine are quite a bit more spaced out. I'm also planning my first vbac. Good to have you here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Hi there Erika and calmom, this is my 5th too! Great to hear you determined for a fair try at labor and a vaginal delivery. Best wishes on that front!
