Hello ladies!<br><br>
Looking for a recommendation for an OB/GYN for a (fingers crossed) VBAC in Pittsburgh. I went with the Midwives at Magee last time, which was totally awesome, except at the very end when I needed an emergency c-section. It was really hard to go into surgery where I did not know (and still don't!) who was performing the surgery, not having formed a relationship with the OB -- in fact, it ended up being a fellow!<br><br>
Anyway, am pregnant again and though I loved the midwife experience, I want to form a relationship with a VBAC-friendly OB just in case I end up with another c-section. MFM at Magee estimated I only have a 20% chance at a successful VBAC, and though I think that is nuts, I do want to consider the possibility that a VBAC is not going to be possible.<br><br>
SO, on that front, any recommendations for a super nice, non-interventionist, VBAC-friendly OB/GYN in Pittsburgh? Is that too tall of an order?<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I am currently working on a list of vbac providers for the local ICAN Chapter. I will be watching this thread because at this point most of the vbac mom's I've worked with have been with midwives. I must say though that even if you go to an ob and require a c-section while in labor there is still a good possibility you won't know the doctor because most of the docs share call with several offices. I will forward any names I find to you though.<br><br>
I was told by one of the nurses at Magee that Dr Poutis (I think that's the correct spelling) was vbac friendly and I was just told the other day by another doula that Dr Baer through Womancare is but again they are both Womancare docs and share call with several other doctors.
