So I have been on the fence about if I want to stay at my OB or change to a MW. I had an appointment with my OB yesterday where I discussed my fears with her about having a VBAC and how much I want to avoid CS (if possible) and that I was concerned about this being that I don't know that it will be her who will deliver the baby. They are doing a trial where all the doctors involved in this company are doing 12 hr shifts, so it could be someone not from that practice, but another. 26 doctors total.
She told me that they just had a big presentation on C-sections and how they need to work toward reducing the rate, etc. and how they are trying to move more towards letting a woman labor on her own and see how things go. Everything she told me about the way she would let birth makes me want to stay there. I asked about monitoring and she said I would have to do constant monitoring (they have wireless) since I'm VBAC, which I figured. This means I wont be able to go in the water. I'm wondering what are your OB/MW monitoring requirements for VBAC? TIA!
