UPDATED IN POST #5!

I am usually a lurker but I'm coming out the shadows because I have a big predicament. Okay, my first child was born by c-section in Nov 06. It never should have happened. I was not in danger...she was not in danger, I just had an impatient doctor and I was not educated or prepared enough to say no. So here I am. I want an HBAC this time. That seems easy enough, right? There are tons of midwives that are eager to do those. Here's where it gets sticky. I live in South Carolina. DHEC Regs prohibit a midwife from delivering ANY VBAC, whether it's in a birth center or at home. I absolutely DO NOT want a hospital birth...BTDT, have the scar. So how do I find a doctor that will do it? Can a midwife come from say NC or GA and do it? Do I have to go to them? I don't know if I can ride that far in labor...

This is all so confusing. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!
