((Hugs)) don't give up yet. They used those scare tactics on me too when I tried to find an OB who would do my VBAC for #5. They are doom and gloom with huge numbers of uterine ruptures and complications during VBAC's...even going as far as saying mom/baby (or both) will die in seconds.

I found a homebirth MW who had no problem with me being a VBAC'er. I have had two very successful VBAC homebirths and am planning another one.

I would say the ICAN ladies stats are more accurate. IMO the OB/hospital want more c/sections...they make more money from them than a non medicated VBAC.

Maybe the MW would understand your financial need. I know mine did, this time around she reduced her price by 75%, which was a real blessing. If you do talk to the MW more I am sure she will explain the stats and "risks" more with you and dh.

Good luck trying to find a VBAC friendly provider...
