Given that information, I am looking for a recommendation for a midwife who is willing to perform a homebirth after cesarean to a breech baby. To ensure that said midwife is not able to be prosecuted for any part of our birth, regardless of the outcome, I'm happy to sign any AMA (Against Medical Advice) forms prior to delivery and to allow the midwife to leave if at any time she feels uncomfortable. If we can't find a midwife, we'll be forced to have an unassisted birth and I'm not entirely comfortable with that.
Any recommendations/advice/information is appriceated!

Praying for another baby and a successful home water birth after cesarean...
Have you checked out CHOICE? They have been around for a long time and are very reputable. I don't think any decent midwife would leave you in the middle of birth if there was a problem. They should transfer you to a hospital. I don't know that homebirth midwives are allowed to attend breech births at home. They aren't in California. But I wouldn't assume that you will have another breech baby. A midwife may be able to help you turn the baby so that it is in a good position. The Spinning Babies website also has a lot of good information about getting babies in a good position for birth. Good luck!
