Yes, have heard they are great, but state licensing says no VBAC's for CPM's.
You either have to go to the hospital with a supportive CNM or OB or go unassisted. Do you have access to ANMC? They have the highest VBAC rates plus they do hypnobirthing. I went there for my VBAC. It was ok.
I think for Regional the only one I know of that is supportive is Dr. Mark Ritchie. Most others practice at Providence. Maybe Dr. Owen Bell practices at both? He also has a CNM that works with him as well...I think Barbara Norton at Geneva Woods, CNM, only practices at Providence.
I think the most important thing for VBACers is to find a provider who is truly, not just saying it, but truly supportive. Do you research and be insistent and determined. And find a doula or trusted person who can help you make decisions while you're in laborland.
I don't want to be negative, but my experience was I had to fight every step of the way and it was exhausting, but worth it. However, I was coming from a preexisting negative view of hospital birthing and I was pretty upset I couldn't do a homebirth (with a mw).
