While the restrictions have gotten tighter in Philadelphia, I know of a wonderful OB there who regularly serves as back-up to home birth midwives.  I don't know the arrangement she has with her hospital.  Is there someone similar in Boston?  Feel free to send me a private message, if you wish.

I'm in Boston as well, planning on a HB for our first this fall, and also in training to be a CPM.  I haven't yet heard of any Boston OB's backing HB mommas, but according to my midwives, Brigham & Women's is generally pretty good about HB transfers.  Sorry this isn't more helpful! 

Best of luck to you!
