Help. Need VBA2C friendly hospital and OB

Just been told by my closest hospital that they will not risk a natural birth after 2 cesareans.

Does anyone know of a VBA2C friendly hospital and OB?

I am 36 weeks and am rather annoyed that it took until now for the OB/Hospital to tell me that I have to be chopped open again!

Thanks,

Rather p*ssed off!

Re: Help. Need VBA2C friendly hospital and OB

Sorry don't know of one in particular. From what I understand, VBAC is not really done too much here. I think my OB would do it but only if everything were going perfectly and after much dicussion and evaluation of risks, and reasons for requesting explained. Also, he mentioned they would have to scan the previous incisions near the birth time to evaluate the strengh/weakness of the scar tissue, so it was always a big 'if'. Believe most drs. and hospitals are quite risk adverse, and that is why it is not done too much. What does your current OB think? Have they given a reason.

My OB told me that after one c-section it is usually possible to try and have a normal birth, with a 50% chance of it ending up in another c-section anyway.

But she was adamant that after TWO c-sections the risk of uterine rupture is too high, and another c-section is unavoidable.

Re: Help. Need VBA2C friendly hospital and OB

There is a special hospital in Richterswil that I heard of that apparantly is the most natural in terms of VBAC (that I could find in Switzerland) and allowing mothers to try and give birth naturally first before attempting C sections - I am planning to go there if I get pregnant again as I have also had to have 2 c sections due to the babies being in funny positions and being stuck etc...

They also don't do scheduled c sections and they also have a special c section technique which apparantly is amazing as it doesn't leave as much scar tissue and helps your body naturally repair, they have an amazing reputation. A close Swiss friend of mine had heard about them through her midwife and told me cause I was trying to find a place like this here.

So check them out...they also have a policy of not carrying out a scheduled C section even if you need one, until you naturally go into labour yourself because they know that the labour process is very important for the baby and the timing of allowing your body to naturally go into labour also helps to ensure it is the perfect timing. :-)They also have an amazing reputation for doing twin births naturally and also breach births which are not hardly ever done in Switzerland anymore except through C section, so they are VERY experienced I think and willing to let your body do what it is supposed to do and they monitor closely and only intervene when completely necessary and their track record and safety record is very good, even better than most other hospitals!

here is the link to the hospital for you to check out - I just use the translate tool to translate the website into english:

The only downside is that it is on the other side of the lake, but it is well worth the journey if it means you get to have a great staff take care of you and you get to at least try and give birth naturally instead of being forced to do another c-section like everyone else will say!

Hope it goes well for you! Would love to hear your thoughts on that hospital if you do end up going there :-)

Thanks for this. I have sent them an email asking if they do VBA2C. They are only 25 mins drive from here... so that's OK.

Even if they do not take the risk, I am not wedded to a vaginal delivery, rather the instant bonding with the baby that a natural birth gives you. So if I can get that with a c-section then I will still be happy.
