CNMs are not allowed to do VBACs at home I persnally know one who did but she got in trouble with the board that regulates her. But I am sure she is not the only one. What you could do is have an HBAc with an american lay MW who lives here, then go to the hospital and say "oops the baby popped out! my friend who we were visiting helped me." or something along thse lines and then get a birth certificate without issue. other wise i dont know how it could happen. that doesnt sound too relaxing to me. there is one hospital here with a birth center anyone remember the name or the city? i dont right now. you could hire a doula who you feel comfortable with and birth with her in a hospital without telling them abt the C-section? i dont know how safe that is. good luck.
