Cincinnati/Dayton, OH VBAC supportive MW or OB

Anyone happen to know of a good VBAC supportive MW or OB in the Cincinnati area? I am on the Northern side of Cincinnati so Dayton, OH is also an option. I am currently contemplating having another child and totally want to go VBAC. I am open to a homebirth as well. I've contact my local ICAN chapter about supportive providers but was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions.
