    Hi, im not pregnant atm but just thinking ahead. Has anyone had an ob/hospital supportive of this in melbourne? I have been given the impression it is hard to find the support to attempt.

    Default VBA2C in melbourne

    I have a gf who is a midwife at sunshine and have discussed this with her, she said its my birth not the hospitals and that given there was no real legitimate reason I wouldn't be a good candidate id likely be fine to attempt, I have attempted a vbac at sunshine before and they were amazing,
    They did everything they could in their power to give
    Me my natural delivery, however they couldn't even vacuum him out when he got stuck and distressed (as in her just was never going to fit in the position he was in, 2 weeks over posterior, chin up and very large)but they were amazing.
    I also have another gf who has had a vba2c there.
    She also said this would be more achievable in their caseload program, which I have also done twice. Good luck

    Hi Tinkers,

    I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant with baby number 4 and am going for VBA2C at Mercy Hospital in Heidleberg. So far they are supportive... but only time will tell how much!

    Cheers
