Dealing with Doctor when planning HBAC?

I would really like to pursue an HBAC, and I believe I'm a good candidate (made it to 10cm and pushing, no complications other than positioning, healthy weight). I have met with a midwife, and we are willing to pay her out of pocket, but...I have EXCELLENT health insurance through DH's job, so I'd like to do testing, U/S, etc. through the OB. Pretty much everything is covered and the clinic is literally walking distance, while the midwife is 45 minutes away.

Has anyone been in a similar situation? The placement nurse and the midwife both say the OB I've chosen is supportive of HBAC (within the limits of what an OB can say in these circumstances). What should I do/ask to keep the OB relationship happy in case I need him for a C/S or a hospital VBAC in the end? I have my first appointment on Thurs.
