It was hard for me. I called several practices before I finally found a doc that would work with me. At the time, I hadn't really considered a midwife because my pregnancies have been high risk. I think if I had looked for a midwife it might have been easier, but I'm not sure a midwife would have worked with me. Everything worked out, but my doc didn't even deliver Shawn. If I were to get pregnant again, I've already told dh I want to see a midwife and possibly have a home birth.
Finding an ob to allow me to attempt a vbac with less than 18 months between births has been very hard. I'm going to be going with a midwife, I found one in the area that will accept me, the others require 24 months between births.

Ronin Avery Feb 21, 2014 VBAC 8 lbs 11 oz 21 inches
Both my OB and Midwife are very encouraging and adamant that they believe a VBAC will be extremely successful for me since I have had a successful vaginal delivery and my c-section was a result of Placenta Previa and not because I couldn't deliver naturally on my own.

I've been scouring the internet for months now for someone in my area. Still no luck. The options are limited out here. The names I have found don't exactly have the best reviews. Granted, I haven't met any of these people for myself, yet, but going off reviews on the internet isn't looking promising. A lot of these people don't even have any reviews.
Mom to a 2 year old baby girl, 2 week old baby boy, and one in Heaven.
In loving memory of our angel baby, with us for 4 weeks. Baby went to be with God July 24th, 2009.
My home town doctor couldnt do a vbac for me (hospital ban) I found a VBAC doctor and a VBAC friendly hospital at 12 weeks =). I've been told by my old doctor and my new doctor that I'm a great candidate because I delivered my first child vaginally and my second was a section due to frank breech presentation.
I see the OB's office midwife and she completely supports me attempting VBAC/thinks I'm a good candidate.
One of the OBs there does not think I am a good candidate because my first born was posterior and I ended up with a csection, but is letting me decide.
I think many places say they are VBAC friendly but push against it when the times gets closer. I hear reasons each appointment why an elective c is better, some as dump as I can recover in a room in L&D instead of ICU if it's an emergency C. Not really a good reason, if you ask me.
