Meet The Team
Owner, CD(DONA), AD(MCU), CVD (TVL)
Meagan co-founded the VBAC Link in 2018. Although she always felt called to the baby world, she really found her love for birth in 2014 after her second C-Section. Through these two birth experiences, her love and passion grew around VBAC. She wanted to help people feel supported and loved. She had two C-sections and then went on to have a VBA2C, and has now supported over 300 families through their birthing journeys as a doula. Her drive is to help women like herself feel educated, supported, and empowered during their birthing time.When she is not doing podcasts or doula work, Meagan loves attending her kid's soccer games, gymnastics meets, and being involved in their school activities. She is our social butterfly and will always be down for a DYI project or a walk around the block at night with her husband.

Here at The VBAC Link, we believe in making birth after Cesarean better by providing education, support, and a community of like minded people.
Welcome to our circle, we are so glad you are here!
The inspiration behind the logo is that, at The VBAC Link, we are working to link, or connect, and educate birthing parents. We accomplish this with supportive providers and doulas to create the perfect birth experience and a supportive community.
We chose five people linking hands to represent the birthing parent, the birth partner, the child, the provider, and the doula.
Our Core Values
We operate The VBAC Link based on four core values: integrity, authenticity, credibility, and relationships. We believe in being honest, open, and transparent in everything we do and say.
You can be sure that whatever information we put out, in our courses, the blog, social media, or otherwise, is backed up by a credible study or organization.
We foster relationships with as many people as we can in order to build a safe and supportive community full of people who understand each other and help build each other up.
We operate with loyalty and honesty, always doing what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it. Being true to ourselves, our followers, and our passions are most valuable to us.
We are real and genuine. We have had similar experiences to those who turn to us for education and inspiration. One thing that draws people to us is that we have been through the things they are going through.
The information we present is always factual and backed up by reliable and recognized sources in the childbirth industry. We reference studies and reports wherever possible, and ensure that we can validate and back up everything we say.
We establish and foster positive relationships with everyone who reaches out to us. We respond to all emails and messages personally, creating a sense of community and support in those who contact us.
