When you become a VBAC doula, you are performing a vital function for parents everywhere, helping them to have the kind of birth they want. VBAC hopeful parents do not want another surgery and prefer to deliver their baby vaginally, but they often get pushback from the medical community. VBAC doulas help teach parents how to advocate and speak up for themselves to ensure their preferences are followed during their baby’s delivery. Get VBAC doula training online today, and help women take back their right to deliver their babies on their terms.

Because doulas are not required to be licensed, online doula certification is important in order to show that as a doula, you have received proper training. Mothers considering VBAC births want to make sure they have the best support possible in the delivery room. They want a doula they can count on and trust in their time of need.
VBAC deliveries may or may not be more complicated than regular vaginal deliveries, but the support VBAC doulas provide to mothers through the process is highly specialized.
In addition, mothers committed to VBAC births may fall under pressure from medical personnel at the hospital where they are delivering their baby to have another C-section. Certainly during a difficult labor, it is challenging for mothers to advocate for themselves and resist the pressure from doctors and nurses, so VBAC doulas play a critical role at this time. While the health of the mother is always a top concern, we believe the parent’s wishes are also important, and doulas support parents attempting VBAC deliveries.
Use your online doula certification to promote your services as a VBAC doula and help parents achieve the VBAC births they want.
