<p>Hi Ladies,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My sister-in-law is pregnant with her 2nd child. She is thinking of making the switch to a more supportive care provider, as she wants to go for a VBAC with this next baby (first was a section birth) and her current provider won't support her. She lives in the keys, but her first child was born at Baptist Hospital in Miami & so she wants stick w/this hospital would like to care provider that attends births there. She is OK with the long drive for appointments etc. Midwife would be great, or an OB that is preferably a woman. But a man would be OK as a final option, so long as this care provider will truly support her :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you in advance for any information you can provide- name of provider, practice name, phone number, etc.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>I suggest she calls Dr. Christ-Ann Magloire who is VBAC friendly in that area.</p>

<p>I do not know if she has priviledges at Baptist Hospital.</p>
<p>Baptist hospital does allow vbacs:</p>

<p>and with a cesarean rate of 46% it is actually one of the hospitals with a lower c-section rate in Miami, sadly:</p>

<p>She doesn't have any VBAC options in the Keys though, if I remember correctly.  I think Dr. Magloire is her best bet.</p>

<p>Also, since she is so close she should definitely attend the VBAC Summit in Miami in May.  I went last year, it is a lot of good information about VBAC.</p>

<p>Hi Sharon, I am not sure if you're sister in law was able to find a VBAC doctor finally, but I am currently 21 weeks into my second pregnancy in the same predicament and have just found Dr. Apollon who delivers in Baptist also and I am going to see her next week to possible change care over to them, depending on how it goes. She is in a group together with Dr. Pelaez and I believe they are all women, but I did verify that they do VBACs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here is the information for their office:</p>

<div class="f kv"> 8900 SW 117th Ave # B202  Miami, FL 33186<br>(305) 630-4100</div>
<div class="f kv"> </div>
<div class="f kv">Best of luck to her, please let us know how it goes for her :) VBACs are so uncommon here in Miami, and I wish more people were even made aware of them.</div>
