I completely understand how you are feeling. My first birth was far from ideal. It ended in a c-section that was unnecessary after 23 hours of labor and 1 1/2 hours of pushing. They decided they needed to take him.

I am having an HBAC. I am in Michigan though, but the town I live in is very anti-vbac. I had to do my own searching and I finally found a home birth midwife who said I was a good candidate.

See if you can't find anyone else. Even meet with that midwife and talk to her if you can, but keep options open if possible, by keeping options open, I mean searching online. Thats how I found mine.

I never want to go back to a hospital. I wish you the best and hope things work out for you!
