    I have heard of a few that do.. I know of no one who was under the 100kg weight limit at the time of birth though.

    Default Water Births in Public Hospitals- is it done?

    Casey Hosp in S\E Vic does but you need to fulfil their criteria for 'low risk' and sign a few papers. I think they only have one tub too.

    I wanted a water birth for DD1 and was in the bath for the majority of the time but labour started to slow down and then DD1's heat rate dropped so I had to hop out.

    Where I had my son did. They prefer you just to labour in the bath and made me sign a waiver if I were to actually end up popping him out in the bath. However because I was induced I couldn't be in the bath due to being attached to a drip, monitored with a band around my belly etc (band drove me nuts). They were pretty excellent with other kinds of options and encouraged you to get off the bed where practicable. The midwife I had for the bulk of my labour and birth turned out to do homebirths too, and was obviously into women's choice. I ended up birthing standing up.

    So I guess even if my hospital did it, I would be 'risked out' due to VBAC. I knew having a c/s would come back and bite me on the bum!

    I'm sorry I think the only way you'll get a vbac in water is at home

    I've asked on the homebirth australia facebook page here for you re: vbac water birth in vic hospital https://www.facebook.com/homebirthau...27857583953343

    I had a water birth in Geelong hospital.
    Monitoring is still possible as they were checking hubs heart rate while u was in the bath.
    I guess you'll have to ask. I hope you get it
