Special Beginnings has a successful VBAC rate of 80%.
I was told they do recommend being induced at 41 1/2 weeks by a current patient. Just FYI incase for whatever reason you tend to go late. I am sure you can refuse like you can anything else, but that is what they recommend.
I just had #3 with Bay Area Midwifery, and Jennifer (at BAM) told me about their new back-ups, the OB hospitalists at AAMC. After the switch, their VBAC success rate has gone up "a lot," she said.
Dr. Jasper, one of the hospitalists, is VERY VBAC friendly and she is very relaxed in her style, too---not jumpy to do interventions. As a side note, Jasper will also deliver a breech baby (not footling) for a multip, though not for a first-timer. Jennifer says she's a cowboy doc who does things her own way (she's a DO by training which may explain her trust in a woman's body).
