Why wouldn't he be able to be in there? I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. :-)

We don't live next to family. His parents live 3 1/2 hours away and mine live 2 1/2 hours away. I have a tendency to always go early so I am praying he stays in until the 8 and then the girls would be in school.

You most certainly do not HAVE to have a repeat cesarian. But you will have to find a new provider. I recommend finding a VBAC supportive midwife. Doctors will harp about the risks of vaginal birth after cesarian, but the data shows VBAC is safer than cesarian in most cases. The ACOG's own recommendations support this. You are an especially good candidate because of the length of time between deliveries (no, the miscarriage does not make a difference). Get informed and know that you will have to stand up for yourself. Check out ICAN, see if there's a local chapter you can get involved with for support (it's on the website). Post on Midwifery Today's facebook site that you are looking for a VBAC supportive provider in your location, and you will likely get some helpful responses. Don't just settle for something you really don't want. I hope you find the support you need to get the birth you hope for!

I have been looking online trying to find a doctor in Austin that will do a VBAC. If I don't have to and I can go through with it and there be no risks, then I will definitely do it.
