    Is Dr. Lucy Lord pro-natural birth?

    Hi -- I'm looking for an OB who supports natural birth IN ACTION (a lot of them do as a matter of lip service but not so much in action). In particular, I had an unwanted C-section before so want someone who would encourage me to try a VBAC.

    Am considering Dr. Lucy Lord. Could anyone share their experience re how supportive Dr. Lord was for a natural birth? And who are the other doctors that are known to be pro-natural?

    Thanks a lot!

    I had a VBAC with Dr Lucy Lord - she was definitely supportive of my desire for a VBAC from my first appointment.

    she will deliver naturally, and is good with stitching, just that she may not be there for most of your delivery tho (maybe just the last 15 min). so you're on your own with the matilda midwives. that's my experience anyway.

    She is very supportive of natural birth though my experience was very similar to noopy, barely saw her and when I did she encouraged a very fast delivery (10minutes) which I've since heard people say makes an episiotomy or tearing more likely so I felt a bit let down. Of course it's hard to say but I feel like if I'd taken things more slowly I might not have ended up with stitches and the speed was more for her benefit than for mine.
