Tori’s Healing VBAC

My daughters are 5 years apart. I didn’t intend to have more than one child because of the amount of trauma I went through giving birth to my first daughter. My C-section was not intended nor were all the interventions, (Pitocin, epidural, c-section) given to me. I didn’t know any better and I honestly thought the hospital nurses and doctors had me and my baby in their best interest. They didn’t give me any advice on how I could progress my labor naturally. They pushed the interventions…

Melissa’s VBA2C

After almost 7 years of feeling like my body couldn’t birth a baby, I did just that. I had a natural unmedicated birth after 2 c-sections with a 9 lb 1.5 oz baby boy (my biggest baby). Labor was long (over 24 hours), tiring, and intense.

Kim’s Birth Story

For the past nine months Raul and I have been preparing for a HBA2C (home birth after 2 c-sections). We read all the books (Ina May was my favorite), watched all the documentaries and took a Bradley class to educate ourselves on the process. We were well versed in the “mechanics” of labor, but there was a mental/emotional component that I struggled with from day one.
