Below is a list of Independent Midwives providing hospital support, VBAC support, home birth and other services.   Whilst all attempts are made to keep this page up to date, errors may occur.   Please advise us if you are a midwife no longer practicing, or if any of the details below are incorrect.

Some midwives will provide services for VBAC at home and others for VBAC in hospital only.   Please discuss your wishes with your midwife. 
It's best to talk to several midwives, to seek their personal opinions on VBAC, before choosing the midwife which your intuition tells you will support you in your birth choices.
