Chicago “Truth About VBAC” Workshop @ Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, Room: Dixon B
Oct 18 @ 5:00 pm – 12:00 am
Chicago "Truth About VBAC" Workshop @ Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, Room: Dixon B | La Grange | Illinois | United States

Registration for the Chicago “Truth About VBAC” Workshop will open on June 6, 2014 at 9:00am CDT.

It’s time for you to experience the workshop that parents, practitioners, and birth professionals alike describe as “essential, accurate, factual, carefully compiled, thoughtfully explained… simply, the best resource to date.”

Developed and presented by Jen Kamel, Founder/ Director of VBAC Facts, “The Truth About VBAC: History, Politics & Stats” honors the mission of VBAC Facts: to close the gap between what the best practice guidelines from ACOG and the NIH say about VBAC and repeat cesarean and what people generally believe. While making information relative to post-cesarean birth options easily accessible to the people who seek it, “The Truth About VBAC” strives to create a deep understanding of “the why” by providing political and historical context of the current VBAC climate as well as medical and scientific context for understanding obstetrical risk and evaluating birth-related research. VBAC Facts is an advocate for accurate and fair information and does not promote a specific mode of delivery, type of health care professional, or birth location. Read more about this unique approach.

6.6 Continuing Education Hours. Spouses/partners welcome. Sign up for the VBAC Facts Newsletter to be notified of upcoming events.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask here or email VBAC Facts.

This will be the only 2014 workshop offered in Illinois.

Testimonials

“For providers or for women exploring their options after cesarean, Jen Kamel’s VBAC Facts Class is a must. VBAC is unique in that you have to understand more than just the science in order to wade through the myths and misinformation, and here is thorough, unbiased, and hard-to-find information on the subject as a whole: science, history, and politics. I wish every OB, L&D nurse, and midwife out there could sit through this class — and, even more important, that every woman out there who has had a cesarean had the opportunity to get the truth about what her options are and why they may be so artificially limited. This class has the power to change how we think about VBAC.” – Cristen Pascucci, Vice President, ImprovingBirth.org, Louisville, KY

“I truly enjoyed your workshop (even with all the crazy math you made us do, lol). I love your delivery, your humor, and your ability to deliver both the pros and cons of such a sensitive topic.” – Doula, Tampa, FL

“Presenter had a strong understanding of statistics and did an admirable job communicating statistical principals to a non-mathematical community. Also helped explain what a medical study entails, how it is done, and how to interpret these studies.” – Father, MA (Mathematics), Sacramento, CA

“The workshop exceeded by expectations. I appreciate the method of delivery and how everything was broken down so it was easy to understand. It was awesome and I will definitely recommend it to everyone!” – Mom, Sacramento, CA

“Jen clearly lays out the risks of each option and let women/families know they need to make the choice they feel most comfortable with. In no way did it feel like she was pushing an agenda either way.” – Doula, San Diego, CA

“Jen Kamel presents a LOT of information and does so in an engaging way! She succinctly summarizes a tremendous amount of research and evidence – and shows the importance of the interplay between perspective and perception of risk (for both patients and providers). Excellent – I strongly encourage anyone involved in birth in any way to attend this seminar!” – CNM, Atlanta, GA

Testimonials

“For providers or for women exploring their options after cesarean, Jen Kamel’s VBAC Facts Class is a must. VBAC is unique in that you have to understand more than just the science in order to wade through the myths and misinformation, and here is thorough, unbiased, and hard-to-find information on the subject as a whole: science, history, and politics. I wish every OB, L&D nurse, and midwife out there could sit through this class — and, even more important, that every woman out there who has had a cesarean had the opportunity to get the truth about what her options are and why they may be so artificially limited. This class has the power to change how we think about VBAC.” – Cristen Pascucci, Vice President, ImprovingBirth.org, Louisville, KY

“I truly enjoyed your workshop (even with all the crazy math you made us do, lol). I love your delivery, your humor, and your ability to deliver both the pros and cons of such a sensitive topic.” – Doula, Tampa, FL

“Presenter had a strong understanding of statistics and did an admirable job communicating statistical principals to a non-mathematical community. Also helped explain what a medical study entails, how it is done, and how to interpret these studies.” – Father, MA (Mathematics), Sacramento, CA

“The workshop exceeded by expectations. I appreciate the method of delivery and how everything was broken down so it was easy to understand. It was awesome and I will definitely recommend it to everyone!” – Mom, Sacramento, CA

“Jen clearly lays out the risks of each option and let women/families know they need to make the choice they feel most comfortable with. In no way did it feel like she was pushing an agenda either way.” – Doula, San Diego, CA

“Jen Kamel presents a LOT of information and does so in an engaging way! She succinctly summarizes a tremendous amount of research and evidence – and shows the importance of the interplay between perspective and perception of risk (for both patients and providers). Excellent – I strongly encourage anyone involved in birth in any way to attend this seminar!” – CNM, Atlanta, GA
