OK, it's time for a movie to be made about VBAC's, now that Ricki and Abby have scratched the surface with "The Business of Being Born." Do you know how hard it is to find an OB who will perform vbac's? And, on top of that a waterbirth vbac? I need BOTH! I'm in Atlanta for God's sake, and, aside from my personal experience, do you know how many women have to search and drive in the state of GA to find a doc who will perform this "procedure?" The uterine rupture rate is less than 1%!!!!!!! The dollar continues to drive everything! Anyway, I've switched to a midwifery practice here (my ob was more than willing to let me vbac, but the hospital was against waterbirths), and I can get my waterbirth, but I can't get my vbac in the tub!!! This is outlandish. Is there a safer place to be (for most women, anyway), than in the water? And I have pelvic challenges, so the water for me would be the most comfortable place! But hospital policy is cfm w/vbac. I have the head of ob/gyn at the hospital and my midwives fighting to turn this thing around, but if people would just do the research, read the studies, listen to the people who have been delivering babies FOREVER, this would be a no-brainer! There's a time and a place for everything, sections, no TOL...I get that. But it's not every time, and it's not every place. Someone needs to do a documentary around this...I have 5 weeks to go, and I'm praying and pushing for a miracle in those next 5 weeks! I'm pushing for this not just for me, but for women all over who are just like me. This has been quite a journey, and it will not be complete until it becomes standard practice for total TOL w/vbac, less sections, waterbirths, and waterbirth vbacs! Anybody in Atlanta had experience around this? Anyone know what waterbirth vbac looks like in the rest of the country? Thoughts?????
