I am also overweight, sounds like about the same as you prob about 50lbs over recommended pre-preggo weight. I had problems with my midwife too but not for that reason. I found a doc that is very supportive of me having a VBA2C about 6 weeks ago, just before i began my 3rd timester. He said nothing at all about my weight, not a peep. I think the fear is that bigger women have bigger babies and are more prone to develop GD, and are more likely to "require" a section , if you eat right and exercise it is overall better for you and for baby, so that isn't a bad recommendation. I would contune to interview MW and Docs till u find a good fit, you have to be able to trust your provider, bc they are there to guide you through this whole process, and you don't want someone who is setting you up to fail. Keep looking you have lots of time to decide. GL!

I'm glad you found a midwife who will work with you.
