I am 26 weeks and I have talked with my doc about a VBAC and no luck. I have just found out that the state also "Banned VBAC in Birthing Centers". I am devistated. I have been searching for a safe and natural way to have my second child. Can anyone give any info?
This is my contact/interview list for that area for VBAC/HBAC (I am the chapter leader of ICAN of Tallahassee, seems like we are one of the closest ICAN groups):

SECONDARY VBACs (all homebirth):
*Please note that primary VBACs with a homebirth midwife require a consultation with an OB that is currently licensed to practice in Florida. If you are interested in a primary VBAC at home I would check with the midwives to see if they have that consultation available. After a woman has a primary VBAC her “risk score” decreases to a 2 and she may be able to have a home birth without the consult if she has no additional risk factors.
