Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC)

If you had a baby by cesarean, you have a choice about how you want to give birth this time. It’s your decision. Women should have access to evidence-based information and to safe care if they choose to labor for a VBAC. This evidence-based class provides comprehensive information on VBAC, a safe option to a routine repeat cesarean. It includes information on how to increase your odds for a VBAC and how to find a supportive caregiver and place of birth. It also helps you understand why you may have had a cesarean and how you can do things differently this time.

Topics include:

  • Benefits of having a VBAC
  • Repeat Cesarean: Benefit vs. Risk
  • VBAC odds
  • Main reasons for prior ceserean and what to do different this time
  • Helpful strategies for labor and birth; coping mechanisms
  • Emotional/psychological barriers
  • Planning your VBAC: home, hospital, birth center
  • How to trust in yourself and have a safe and satisfying birth
  • Q&A
