If you first baby was a cesarean (or your second or third) and you are expecting again, you might find yourself faced with the decision to plan for a vaginal birth after a cesarean (VBAC) or schedule a repeat cesarean. For many women, whatever your choice, it’s an easy decision. For others, it might take more thought. Often a repeat cesarean is the default but it doesn’t have to be. Here are 5 reasons to plan a VBAC.
If you do choose to plan a VBAC, pick your care provider and place of birth carefully. Hire a doula like me! ETA: I serve Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, and the North Idaho area ;). Find a support group like ICAN. Know you aren’t alone and go for it!
