Based on those two things I honestly don't see why not.

Is there anything else during your pregnancies that might risk you out?

I don't see why not. If you are healthy, baby is healthy, and you have no risk factors involved then you should be a good candidate for a HBAC. Maybe the Midwife you spoke to doesn't do HBACs, or maybe in your area Midwives are not suppose to attend HBACs. I would call a few more Midwives and see what they say.

I think your best bet would be to talk to area midwives to see if they would take you on as a patient. What would risk you out for one midwife might be different for another. Good luck!

Do you have a strangely shaped pelvis or something like that? If not - I'd say keep trying midwives!

Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!
