I am a VBAC momma and a Doula here in Anchorage. I know there are others here on this thread that are also heavily involved in the Birthing Community so hopefully they will chime in there this week.
You cannot have a homebirth or a birthing center birth here in ALaska with our midwives because it is against their regulations. You can however hire a traveling midwife or have an unassisted homebirth.
Still you said you were not interested in a homebirth just yet so you are looking at hospitals. I have not yet attended a VBAC as a doula but I am learning which OB's are VBAC friendly. So far, I can tell you that Dr. Elrod in Wasilla is pro-vbac. I know a lady having her first VBAC with him in the next few days (just waiting!
) so I'll have more info later about her experience.
Both Prov and Regional are VBAC friendly, meaning they do VBACs. But like I said, I have not had a VBAC there, nor have I attended a VBAC birth so I have no hands on experience to offer. Sorry.
I have personally VBACed at Bassett Army Hospital in Fairbanks and they were great.
There is a wonderful Birthing Community here with lots of Doulas and Midwives! We do get together every few months to chat and we network with each other. I have had 4 referrals in the past 3 weeks from fellow Doulas!
Like Georganne, said, there is a DONA workshop coming in October. Maybe we'll see you there?
