Hi! Just wondering whether anyone can recommend a private obstetrician in Perth who is supportive of vbac. I know a lot of people suggest public at kemh, and am not against the idea, but would rather the ob monitoring through pregnancy if possible...
There's a relatively high likelihood I'll grow another larger baby (baby 1 was 4.1kg), but am hoping I'll be able to vbac. Does anyone have any experience with vbac with bigger babies?
Thanks in advance!

Have you joined the Western Australian VBAC support group on FB? There is a number of OB recommendations there, plus some positive birth stories and lots of advice about what to ask etc. I've chosen to have a private midwife who will deliver at Kemh (or home) for one on one care. Goodluck!

To be honest you are fair likely to find support in the public system. It doesn't have to be KEMH either unless you have other issues you haven't mentioned that make you high risk.
