counseling for Cesarean & VAGINAL BIRTH AFTER CESAREAN (VBAC)

Most women that have had a previous cesarean birth have a choice for their future births. They can either have a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) or a repeat cesarean birth. This is a very personal choice with many factors to consider.

Repeat Cesarean or VBAC, which is right for you?

Doctors often reference percentage chances to have a successful VBAC, but the truth is, you can influence your likelihood of having a successful VBAC. There are many factors that either increase or decrease your percentage chance for a successful VBAC.
— Brooke Radloff

It can be overwhelming to wade through all of the information, misinformation and varying opinions that you come across while trying to make the right decision for you and your baby. Every pregnancy, every birth, and every baby is different. Your personal story, previous health history and previous birth experiences are all unique factors that affect which decision is best for YOU.

Receiving professional, unbiased and loving support while you are in this decision making process can be incredibly empowering, healing and clarifying. With this support you can move forward with your plan, feeling confident, clear and fully informed. Not only can you come to a clear decision around your next birth, but the counseling sessions are also designed to introduce deeper layers of healing to some of the unresolved issues that may still remain from your previous one(s).

Preparing with confidence for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)

Whether a woman had a planned cesarean or an emergency cesarean after laboring with her previous child, the need for good information and powerful guidance to increase her chances for a successful VBAC is invaluable. Doctors often reference percentage chances to have a successful VBAC, but the truth is, there are many factors that can increase or decrease your chances for a successful VBAC.

When a woman is considering a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), she usually experiences very strong emotions and concerns that stem from her previous birth. If left unresolved, these lingering pent up emotions often cloud a woman's decision making process, as well as feeding her thoughts and feelings with fear as she steps into her subsequent pregnancies and labors. 

Coupling evidence-based VBAC information with skilled emotional VBAC Counseling Support can provide a powerful opportunity to help you heal as you address and release unresolved pain, sadness and disappointment, while also helping you come into a place of preparation, confidence, and empowerment.
