Pursuing a VBAC was not an easy experience for us. We had to find an obstetrician that was really going to support us. And we went through three OBs. Our first OB said that she was very pro VBAC but she was associated with a hospital that didn´t have an anethesiologist on call 24/7. So our VBAC depended on her availability at another hospital depending on the day. Our second OB said that she was pro VBAC but put a lot of limitations on us. So if I went over 40 weeks, if I had gestational diabetes, if the baby was measuring big, those were all reasons that would put a halt to our VBAC, not to mention if it conflicted with her skiing trip. Our last OB that we visited with promised us that he would do everything in his power to support the VBAC so he said he would go with option A, B, C and D before attempting a c section. And so we felt confident that he was going to support us in our VBAC quest.
