VBAC Education

Only 8% of Moms attempt a VBAC, but of those who plan one, 80% deliver vaginally. I love supporting and educating families about VBAC, I have witnessed in others and personally experienced the healing effects and the sense of empowerment attained through a VBAC. Private, in-home education or group classes may be arranged. If you have a few friends thinking of VBAC, I’m happy to help you organize a group session.
