If you had a successful VBAC a Brisbane Mater Mothers Private and had a pro-VBAC OB, I'd love to know who your OB was.
My OB for DD has said that she will support a VBAC this time, but I'm concerned by how I only see stories from other ladies about her saying this and no actual stories of successful VBACs. I only know of one Dr for certain who is pro-VBAC, so I'll call tomorrow to find out if he's available, but I'd love to know who else might support my decision to attempt a VBAC in case he's not available.
Since I'm assuming the rules require a reply via PM, I'm hoping I can receive PMs. I only just signed up today because I haven't had a response on the forum I usually visit.

Hi... I am 30 weeks and just transferred to the Mater Mothers from another hospital. I had my first appointment there yesterday. (My first baby was natural, second Emergency C/S without labour.)
My first appointment was with the midwife. I asked her if VBAC was supported and she said 'of course, you'll find it is preferred.'
I then asked the ob who was my next appointment. Even though I am having my 3rd high risk pregnancy (PE in the first, PE and HELLP in the second, PIH now since 5 weeks and have been on weekly high risk ob appointments from the start) she still said that a trial of labour and VBAC would be ideal. (Not what I was expecting to hear at all.) In fact... I asked if that would still be the case if I needed to be induced as my babies have both needed to come out very quickly due to PE. She said yes, they would still induce a VBAC.
I am going public through the Mater but the obs are all the same.
Good luck. I had no resistance from the at all. Quite the opposite.

I had an excellent OB at the Mater Private last year.
Completely and totally supported my desire for a VBAC and never once tried to talk me out of it. He was brilliant. I'll PM you!

Re-hashing an old thread here. Does anyone know a good OB for Mater Private that fully supports VBAC? Please please pm me if you do! Also, any vbac books that were particularly helpful for you to gain confidence in your body would be wonderful... any pm's would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
