A few birth stories from our fans…

 

"My husband caught our VBA2C [vaginal birth after two cesareans] baby and placed her on my chest. We were shocked and delighted to find out our two boys had a sister!"

“My husband caught our VBA2C [vaginal birth after two cesareans] baby and placed her on my chest. We were shocked and delighted to find out our two boys had a sister!”

“I wanted and was planning a VBAC, but I got cold feet. I was 40 weeks and 5 days with no signs of dilation. My baby’s weight was estimated to be 10 lbs 6 oz. My doctor was supportive of waiting for a VBAC or having a repeat cesarean. It was my choice to have the repeat cesarean.”

“I told you you could do it! Daddy was telling me to squeeze his hand as hard as possible and I thought I couldn’t squeeze any harder, but I did. Laying on my side with my head buried in his chest hair, my happy place. I opened to welcome my baby Earthside.”

Family Centered Cesarean

“After 30 hours of labor, we decided on a CBAC (cesarean birth after cesarean.) I had my husband and doula in the room with me, breastfeeding in the OR, and no one took her from me except to do initial apgars. Everyone in the OR was incredibly kind and respectful. Her birth was both sad and incredibly beautiful and healing.”
