Can someone help me with questions for VBAC consultant?

Hi, I'm seeing the VBAC consultant in less than 2 weeks and I have just moved so this hospital and its procedures are completely new to me. This is what I have so far:

What will happen if I go over due again? (if I get to +16 days again?)

Will the midwives give me earlier (38/39 weeks) sweeps to help get things going?

Will I have a scan at 34/36 weeks to check babies position (DS was back to back)

What monitoring will the hospital do of the baby once I’m in labour?

Would I be able to have a water birth?

Would I be able to be mobile during labour i.e. birthing ball, kneeling, walking positions (I found having to lie on my back for DS labour very uncomfortable and was just desperate to move around but not allowed because of induction drip)

How long will I be allowed to labour for before another EMCS is deemed necessary? (1st and 2nd stages)

Will I be allowed skin to skin contact if baby is born by EMCS?

How long will I have to stay in hospital if VBAC goes well? If I end up having another EMCS?

Can you think of any more??
