The best person to talk to about this is a member here with the username womancaredoula<br>
She's the Baltimore chapter leader of ICAN and has a ton of info about having a VBAC in Maryland. I recommend PMing her if she doesn't get to this thread first!<br>
Hope that helps!

The only birthing center doing VBACs at their center is Birth Care in Alexandria VA and I sometimes here that they only do VBACs for women who have already had one previously (but I'd confirm that yourself).<br><br>
Yes, their are homebirth midwives who do hbacs. I just had one myself last December. PM me and we can go over your options.<br><br>
Also, the Baltimore chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) meets monthly from Sept. through May and is a great resource for VBAC planning and support. Our May meeting is on the topic of Exploring Homebirth and will feature an area homebirth midwife or two and hopefully some birth videos<br><br><br>
