Join us for the March 2013 VBAC Facts webinar! Due to presenting at a Midwifery Today pre-conference session and offering classes in Oregon and Miami over the coming months, the next webinar will be in June.
Have you had a cesarean? Do you want to understand your future birth options? Are your friends and family worried about your desire to plan a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)? Are your clients or patients seeking accurate information? Can you speak intelligently on the risks and benefits of VBAC and repeat cesarean?
Developed and presented by Jen Kamel, Founder & Executive Director of VBAC Facts, “The Truth About VBAC: History, Politics & Stats” webinar delivers an evidence-based review of interesting and hard to find information relative to post-cesarean birth options to parents, birth advocates, and medical professionals over two consecutive Saturdays. It is jam packed with statistics, analysis, and recommendations directly from respected medical journals, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the National Institutes of Health.
