I had all homebirths with a midwife with no ultrasounds or other invasive tests.
However having a previous c/sec complicates all future deliveries for you, so you will most probably have much trouble finding any healthcare professional to comply with your wishes.
Life threatening complications as adhesions, bowel problems, uterine rupture, placenta accreta/percreta/increta, placenta previa, hemorrhage, miscarriage, stillborn, and many other problems associated with previous c/secs should be screened for before delivery.
Get your records so that you can learn what kind of repair was done to your uterus as well as any problems during surgery. Getting your records is always an eye opening revelation.
Doctors should be more careful about ordering c/sec delivery in women as it affects all future deliveries and all abdominal conditions. In the 1950s, there was a saying that a doctor who does a caesarean section delivery has a patient for life; in the same era, any doctor that did lots of caesarean section deliveries was a pariah among his colleagues. Today, it is hard to even sue a doctor for doing an unnecessary caesarean delivery since the procedure is seen as lifesaving, no matter how trivial the reason for the procedure.

You never know what you're gonna get - acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy, allergies, diabetes, eczema, petit/gran mal seizures, ADEM, AFP, ASIA, CFS, GBS, JPA, JRA, LGS, LKS, POTS, RA, SJS, SLE, SPD, TPI, Henoch-Schonlein purpua, fibromyalgia, Retts Syndrome, encephalitis, Hughes Syndrome, neurological damage, coma, or death."
