The decision about VBAC will depend on the size of the baby close to the time of delivery and the size of your pelvis, as well as whether there are any medical problems or problems during the pregnancy. Thus there are not specific doctors who do VBACs. You could discuss this with whoever you see at the time of the first visit.
