Do You Want to Learn How to Better Support Your VBAC Clients?
We Can Help.
As doulas, we know that keeping up to date on evidence-based information to support your clients is important.
We are here to make that easy for you!
We are Julie Francom and Meagan Heaton. Together we have supported over 1,000 VBAC parents on their journeys.
We know firsthand how hard it can be as a doula supporting a parent with a previous Cesarean, not because they are particularly difficult but because of the politics and bias surrounding VBAC.
When we were working towards our VBACs, our doulas, and their knowledge about VBAC left us feeling confident and empowered. We truly couldn’t have done it without them.
That’s why we created The VBAC Link; to help you become more confident and educated so you can be a reliable source of knowledge and strength for you and your clients preparing for VBAC.
We break down the evidence-based information to eliminate the stress and simplify the data and statistics.
Have you ever heard someone say:
- My pelvis is too small to birth a baby
- I’ve heard that VBAC is unsafe
- You cannot induce VBAC
Or, have you ever wondered how to support a VBAC client whose provider is clearly unsupportive?
We have created our content to clear up the myths and leave doulas like you feeling confident when supporting VBAC parents.
You are in the right place. Here are some of our most popular resources to get you started.
