I’m new to the site and was just wondering if anyone has experience of VBAC in the Lourdes and if you could recommend a consultant. I was With Dr Higgins last time but he’s in Holles ST now and it’s too far away. I really don’t want to go down the section route again but want to have a consultant that will support my decision.
I tried for a VBAC last october with Dr Rabee, she was delighted to hearI wanted to try for a VBAC and she said she thinks its better to try as its a much better birth then a section.
Good luck and Rabee is brilliant
It might be a good idea to post this question in the mums to be section too.
Good on you going for a VBAC, it is often achievable once you prepare yourself.
My friend had a VBAC in OLOL. I was her birth partner and it was a very good experience for her. She was clear about what she wanted and she practised her breathing techniques and remained calm and did it all without drugs, it was fantastic.
It is important to discuss your plans with your carer (I also had Dr Rabbe and found her good) and make sure they support you.
Dr Higgins is gone now so when booking with another consultant, make this one of the first questions you ask and make sure they are supportive.
Generally OLOL do not have a very good VBAC policy so you will need someone who will support you on it. I’m sure the mums over on the mums to be thread can give you some advice too.
