I got a few recommendations, but would like some more. I have had 2 c/s & am now planning a homebirth. I live in the Portland area.

I had my two vbacs with <a href="http://www.waterbirth.net/" target="_blank">Andaluz</a> and loved them.<br><br>
I would recomend contacting ICAN, they can be a very big help with finding people who can work with you.<br>

I am the ICAN co leader. I did get some recommendations from ICAN, but wanted to check elsewhere too.

I'm not a VBAC mom, but I know my mws attend HBACs.<br>
Susan Moray & Celeste Kersey <a href="http://www.nwmidwives.com/NWCM/Home.html" target="_blank">http://www.nwmidwives.com/NWCM/Home.html</a><br><br>
I had a beautiful HB with them.

I'm in Salem, but do births in Portland and I'm a huge HBAC supporter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I also do home visits for my clients in Portland so they usually don't have to drive down to the mega metropolis of Salem. xo

I second Andaluz, I had my son there and have nothing but good things to say about them. The owner, secretary, and midwives all go beyond the call of duty. Really a group of amazing women.<br><br>
Good luck to you in your pregnancy and birth!

Pamela (pamamidwife above) is great and I hear really good things about her.<br><br>
I had my 3rd vbac (first hbac) with Ellie Legare and loved her. More hands on than some but she was still great. If we were to have another one (knock on wood, please no, fingers crossed, no no no, 4 is enough, vasectomy works right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) I would either go with ellie or pamela. I would have gone with Pamela last time if she was closer. I'm in Vancouver so Salem would have been a trek. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Well, I will 3rd Pamela. She attended the birth of my 3rd son and she was incredibly amazing. We love her so much! I felt really safe and respected in her care. She also has a great personality, so, you know, we had fun at all my prenatals, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and planning a HBA2C with Ellie Lagare and her partner Heather Hack. So far I have really loved them and the level of care I've received.
