The VBAC Facts Micro Brochure

How many times have you heard the following:

  • “I want to have a VBAC, but it’s illegal.”
  • “I want to have a VBAC, but ACOG doesn’t recommend it.”
  • “I want to have a VBAC, but my sister-in-law says it’s really dangerous.”

How do you respond?

If you are anything like me, your mind either goes blank or fills with facts… and sometimes it can be hard to know where to start.

It’s because of situations like these that I created the VBAC Facts Micro Brochure.

These premium 3.5″ x 2″ glossy finish folding business cards contain the answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding post-cesarean birth options.

They also feature space on the front of the card for you to either provide your contact information or how to connect with a local birth chapter or your favorite childbirth educator, doula, etc. (These clear mailing labels do the trick!)

Whether you are a birth professional, a parent, or a health care provider, this is an easy way to share the facts one person at a time!

Many people believe that VBAC is an unsafe choice that only selfish women make. Yet imagine if those in your community knew what major medical organizations actually said. The American College of OB/GYNs and the National Institutes of Health describe VBAC as a safe, reasonable, and appropriate option for most women. Elevate the conversation. Besides, who doesn’t want to have the word “vaginal” on their bumper?

    Hello, I am very interested in the VBAC card, but want to know that I am providing recent evidence-based information. Is there any way to know what the sources are for the info on this card? Thanks for any information.

      Sarah,

      I completely understand and feel the same way about the information I share. That is why I provide the citation for each statistic on the card even though it takes up quite a bit of space. Studies I reference on the card include Landon (2004) and Mercer (2006). You can look up each citation on the bibliography page: http://vbacfacts.com/bibliography.

      Warmly,

      Jen

      Sarah,

      That is a really great idea! The hard part is deciding what text to delete on the card to allow room!

      I also have two PDF, letter sized handouts. The first is entitled “Quick Facts: Birth after Cesarean“. It’s one page. The front page is the narrative and the back page lists the bibliography. The second PDF is entitled “American Women Speak About VBAC” which includes quotes from women all over the USA sharing why the option of VBAC is important to them. I created for and distributed it at the March 2010 National Institutes of Health VBAC Conference.

      These two handouts can easily accommodate individual personal contact info.

      Hope this helps!

      Jen

    Hi Jen ~

    The “Quick Facts: Birth after Cesarean” document ~ is this something that we may save and print out ourselves? Or do we need to order copies via the website?

    I wasn’t sure if it was something I could print out at home and hand out to VBAC clients ~ wanted to double check. Thanks for all of your hard work ~ it’s certainly appreciated!

    Amber
