I'm trying to get a vbac at gosford through the community midwifes team, most of them seem great, but when I ask about intermittent fetal monitoring and using the bath they say it's the obstetricians call.
I did have an earlier appointment when I was around 20 weeks? with a specialist who was a registrar he basically said I'd have to have continous fetal monitoring and would be on the clock dialation wise and also i'd have to come in as soon as I started labouring, i wouldn't be able to use the batj. I was really upset as this is what happened to me with my first birth and it ended in csection.
I got a second opinion at rwh in randwick with an awesome ob who is the director of the unit there who said intermittent monitoring is fine wster is fine and he actually spoke to me! where as Dr Shah came in for 5 mins then left.
I'm trying to get another appointment with dr shah to compromise on all this stuff but he won't see me until i'm 38 weeks! it's not really enough time if I want to change hospitals. I can change to the rwh in randwick but it's a two hour drive.
Has anyone had a good experience with the obs at gosford? I'm not getting good vibes about it due to the fact they won't even speak to me about it until i'm almost due.
sorry this is so long
