And my other concern with the farm being an hour away, luckily from the native american women in my family we have very fast and nearly painless labors....which is a good thing worry is that by the time I noticed I was in labor ( eg. Began to feel contractions) it would be to late and we wouldn't make it. With #1 & #2 sat un-aware anything was going on with contractions off the chart 2-3min apart and dialateded to 5 with one and 8 with the other....all waiting for my c section.. But I may call them just so I could hear their policy from them and weigh those options..

I would call and see what they say. If you are open to an "illegal" midwife they may be ablt to point you in the right direction.

I am attempting a HBA2C this time around. The only legal midwife I can could find can't do the VBAC part because of her back-up OB but she was able to give me names and numbers of others who could but just weren't legal for IL.

Worth a short if you are wanting to try.
