Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
I’m so excited for this episode because it’s all about something that’s never been spoken about on the podcast…..
VBAC stands for “vaginal birth after cesarean”, and it’s something that’s really grown in (dare I say) popularity in the last 10-15 years.
However, I’ve found that many women hesitate to attempt a VBAC because it’s been ingrained in us to think “once a c-section, always a c-section.”
Are VBACs really a safe option for subsequent pregnancies?
Deep diving into this topic with me are my guests Julie and Meagan from the VBAC Link. Both are VBAC mamas and both also work as birth doulas!
Their mission at the VBAC Link is to make birth after Cesarean better, by helping parents prepare and build confidence in their birth choices.
In our conversation, we discuss the most common reasons women are given c-sections, their tips for avoiding unnecessary c-sections, as well as advice for mamas on fighting for a peaceful delivery even when the unexpected occurs.
Some big takeaways are:
Julie and Meagan shared so many amazing tips for all mamas at any stage of motherhood. You will be inspired by their knowledge to keep learning and fight for the birth you want to have!
