Regardless of how you birthed, or how you plan to birth, if you believe that every pregnant person should have access to vaginal birth after cesarean, you’re in the right place!
Whether you’re a parent, or someone who serves families pregnant again after a cesarean, we want you to have access to the latest facts and evidence so parents can make an informed decision about VBAC and repeat cesarean.
The problem is that many women are incorrectly told that they are not “allowed” to VBAC. They don’t know that they have options.
So we are seeing a huge disconnect between the evidence and what women are told by providers.
Most women are candidates for VBAC, but they are told they “have to have” a repeat cesarean for all future pregnancies.
Even though national guidelines published in 2010 state that women should have access to VBAC, that’s not happening.
Every parent is entitled to the real, unbiased truth so they can joyfully plan their birth… whatever that looks like for them!
The Part You Play
So, how can you help join our movement for women’s health?
At the very basic level, we all need to understand that the medical evidence and national guidelines say that VBAC is a safe, reasonable, and appropriate option for most women.
We need to spread the word so parents who want VBACs are truly supported in this choice and that parents, no matter how they birth, are treated with respect and dignity.
This isn’t about VBACs for everyone or demonizing repeat cesareans. This is about aligning maternity care with the evidence and enabling parents to make the right choice for them.
If you are a parent and you want to plan a VBAC, it might feel overwhelming so I want to share with you my five secrets to joyfully planning your VBAC.
If you are a professional or provider, you might want to dispel the top five uterine rupture myths that are pervasive in exam rooms & labor and delivery units.
