Best NICU-VBAC hospital

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to the area and recently discovered I was pregnant. With twins (may g-d help us all...). I had a c-section with my older son and was told I was a good candidate for VBAC - back when we thought I will be having my babies one at a time... 

So now I'm more concerned about finding a hospital with a great NICU, but it would be great if it was also a place that - if all goes well - would not dismiss the VBAC idea altogether... Would greatly appreciate your input, past experiences, and tips :-)

Re: Best NICU-VBAC hospital

  • Fairfax Hospital has an excellent NICU. I would think the VBAC would be more of a physician preference and I would look into finding an OB that is willing to do a VBAC with twins that possibly has privledges at FFX Hospital.


  • Fairfax is a level 4 NICU, which i think is the highest level in the area.  Where are you located.  The hospital that's closest to me is a level 1 nursery (they don't even have a NICU).  We decided to deliver in DC at Washington Hospital Center, which is actually attached to Children's hospital.

  • My son was at fairfac hospital's nicu and the care is fabulous. It is an older nicu and does not have private rooms like fair oaks does. I delivered at fair oaks and was teansfered to faifax due ro my son needing hearr surgery. Thw fair oaks nicu is very nice with great nurses and in the same network as fairfax, so they will transfer you there if it is something more seriois
  • I dont know where your located but Mary Washington has a great NICU.  Its in Frederickburg Va
