    Default has anyone had a successful vbac at gosford?

    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

    Eugh, i cannot stand gosford hospital. I have had the worst experience of my life there. I would transfer if you are passionate about getting the birth you want.

    I dont trust the obs or anaesthetists at gosford as far as i could throw them.

    I've never birthed there but heard many horror stories from patients that were transferred from there to JHH when I was there. I wouldn't even consider it TBH.

    hmmm yeah i we weren't getting good vibes from gosford when we went there although i think the midwives are great i wouldn't trust the obs and the actual hospital seemed really disorganised generally.

    Has anyone travelled to give birth? we do have the option of going to rwh but it's a 2 hour drive away but it might be a bit tricky to book and stay somewhere if I go overdue.
