I know that as a general rule, because of insurance purposes a high risk pregnancy would not be an option for most lay midwifes. I dont know if a midwife would be able to see you or not. I think that your best bet would be to contact the lay midwifes in your area to ask if anyone would attend to a highrisk pregnancy and birth. Just because your others were high risk though, doesnt always mean that your next one has to be, right? I am pretty sure that a VBAC should not be a reason to deny homebirth if you found the right midwife. Transfer is always an option as well, if anything doesnt fall right into place the way it should. That is ALWAYS something that you have to take into consideration when having a homebirth if you are high risk or not. I hope that helps!
