My closest hospital is an hour away. As a rule, they don't do VBACs; but one OB suggested (to a friend, not me), just showing up ready to push and refusing the c/s. Not sure I like that as a birthing plan.
Next closest hospital (~2 hours away) does VBACs. Friend just had VBAC there and a good experience, but the weeks prior were really difficult and they basically just camped near the town to be closer for the whole time, making little trips back home for a night here and there. (It will be blazing-hot summer for us, and maybe not as much of an option to camp like that.)
On top of the shenanigans regarding the hospital's proximity, I'm not really sure I am a good candidate for VBAC to begin with (went to 42+ weeks, got induced for 12 hrs, never even got to 0 station or 1 cm), so while I would really like to make a VBAC possible, I don't know about throwing my family into chaos for it.
Thinking about scheduling the RCS for the closer hospital and trying to work out a way to be close to further hospital if I go into labor naturally before that (although not sure if the two practices would mind me bouncing back and forth).
Am I missing anything? Any ideas? Anyone else have a situation like this?
