New here.....I'm Nikki due with baby #5 in February. I know I have a long way to go yet. But this will be our last baby and I want to do it the way I've always dreamed it to be done. A little history....My first child in 1999 was a vaginal delivery with an epi. My second was an emergency c/s after 23.5 hours of labor. My third was repeat c/s, I was still young and didn't know any better. My fourth was a very successful VBA2C in a hospital. My Dr. Was all for me having no meds. The nurses would not allow me to get in the tub because I was a "high risk" I do believe that if I were allowed to birth in the tub I would have been able to go all natural, but in the end I got the epi
This baby is it for me and I want to do it at home, in my tub. I haven't went looking for midwives yet or spoken to any Dr. yet. Hubby is fine with whatever I want to do. I would love to know your opinions on my situation.
You will just need to find a midwife who is comfortable doing vbacs. Some aren't and some have absolutely no problem with it at all. There are such a wide range of midwives and all have different levels of expertise. Mine for example is one of the only ones in my area that does breech births. Several do vbacs and some don't. Just shop around, you sound like a great candidate for homebirth to me Good luck!

I think since you've already had one VBAC, most midwives and doctors wouldnt' have a problem taking you on. Many midwives are open to VBACs and encourage it, so I'm sure it won't be hard to find one. Good luck!
