VBAC


Welcome to our VBAC section.  I think that the topic of VBAC is so important and there are always VBAC stories and inspiration needed.  But I am not a VBAC mama and I have never really felt like I could speak about this from a true place of knowledge.  
One day one of our mothers on the Mama Birth Facebook page mentioned that she had just had a fabulous VBA3C and I asked her if she could answer some questions for our readers.  That is how this section got started and I am so incredibly proud of it.  
I am so grateful for the VBAC mamas out there who have answered the questions and shared their individual journey's.  I am sure that if you are planning a VBAC you will find inspiration and words of wisdom from the powerful women.  
We are powerful and our bodies work!  If you would like to share your VBAC lessons, please e-mail me at mamabirth09 (at) yahoo (dot) com with your answers to the questions at the bottom of the post.  Feel free to add anything else you think is relevant and I would love to share a picture if you feel comfortable with that. 

Enjoy!


Here are the questions-
-So, I would love for you to first give a brief rundown of your first birth/s and what you feel like happened and why you had a c-section.

-What made you desire a VBAC when they seem so hard to come by in the current obstetric climate?


-How did you find a care provider who would support you?

-What was labor like for you?

-What helped you VBAC?

-How did you prepare for your VBAC (was there anything you did differently)?

-Describe your VBAC birth story.  We would LOVE to hear about it!

- Has the postpartum experience been different than your other birth/s?  What about it surprised you?

This is a great source of information for me thank you. I am planning a VBAC, baby is due in October.
I am wondering why a VBAC is considered such an out of the ordinarty thing, or why the big deal? - is it because a lot of doctors deny a women to try or because a VBAC is more difficult (aside from the small risks that is).
