Hi ladies! I've been lurking for awhile now, but thought I'd say hello. I've found alot of your posts very helpful! My story: I had a c-section 11 months ago. I had to insist on trying to have my baby naturally, after my doctor tried his best to push a csection on me. I ended up having an emergency section anyways because they induced too early and my body was just not ready yet. Now, I've been looking into vbac. I'm not pregnant...yet, but I want to be as knowledgable as possible for when that time arrives. I've got two hospitals in my area. One has a strict "no vbac" policy and the other is a "de facto vbac" hospital. So my question is two fold. 1. How far away would you drive to have a VBAC? So far, the closest hospital I've found is about 1.5 hrs away! 2. Do I establish care with a physician in my area knowing that I will have to go somewhere else to have the baby, or find a doctor in that area to see?
I really appreciate any feedback or references you can offer. Thanks in advance!
