What is a VBAC?
Most women don’t know about their options when it comes to delivery. VBAC stands for vaginal birth after cesarean. This procedure gives mothers a chance to experience a vaginal delivery if they have had a c-section in the past.
So, how do you know if you’re a candidate for a VBAC?
Morgan Miller is a full-time midwife specializing in helping women prepare for birth. Through her experiences working with mothers, she gives us a look at her role in the lives of expecting mothers and how to prepare your body and mind for a VBAC. Morgan is a wealth of information, giving some incredible insight on delivery and how to self-advocate.
I hope you enjoy this episode, and it gives you the courage to talk to your doctor or midwife about your options for delivery.
