Natalie, I'm in Portland, OR and let me tell you we live in a *GREAT* place for VBAC. There are lots of midwives in the area and I have several friends who have VBACed at home and had wonderful experiences. I personally know a naturopathic doctor/midwife who I would hire in a second if I were to get pregnant again. I've had 3 kids....1st was emer. c-section, the 2nd was a VBAC with an OB in a hospital and the third was a VBAVBAC (you like my term? I made it up!) with a midwife in a hospital. We're done (as far as having babies goes) but if we did find ourselves unexpectedly pregnant, I'd have a homebirth for sure! Oh and I'm also involved with the Portland ICAN chapter so let me know if you need any info. You said you were on the border, but its a big border so not sure if you are close to Portland or not.
