Just a heads up for any VBACer (or others) looking for a homebirth. There is one in the state right now who can take a birth anywhere in the state and another who can do the Anchorage/Mat-Su area through August. Cost will be very reasonable since travel expenses are shared. They are both highly qualified and can bill private insurance.

Yeah, isn't it great we have "coverage" for the whole summer. Now the problem is finding a way to let women know they have this option. And of course educating them that it can not only be a safe option but often their best (or only) way of getting to VBAC.

I'll let my chiro know. She's VBACing at home this summer (due first week in July) and is planning to meet with a doc in June just so someone knows what she's doing if she ends up at FMH.
