so I have just had my first scan at 6 weeks and 6 days and I'm finally ready to think this second pregnancy is actually real! Ever since my dd's birth I have been planning for a vbac, although I am not yet set on whether I want a homebirth or a public hospital birth. Either way, I will be hiring a private midwife. So...where do I start? I have just had my scan with my ivf dr and last pregnancy I just went straight to an ob. If I am hiring a midwife do I contact a dr (I don't have a regular one as we just moved) and book in to a hospital until i choose a midwife? Any suggestions (if you are allowed) - I am in Melbourne (North/East). Mercy hospital is the closest. Although I ideally want a water birth so I'm thinking it will be at home for me (stupid high risk label!).
