How to VBAC: The Ultimate Prep Course for Parents

We offer the most comprehensive VBAC Preparation Course available, perfectly packaged in online modules that allows you to progress at your own pace. The reassurance of having a VBAC doula attend the birth is important; however, parental preparation also helps bring a sense of calm to the process and helps instill in the mother the confidence she needs as she moves towards a VBAC delivery. 

In an ideal world, VBAC parents would be treated just like any other birthing parents.

Unfortunately, the reality is that misinformation abounds, giving the impression that VBAC pregnancy is complicated and dangerous when it doesn’t have to be. VBACs are uncommon because many medical providers often prefer that women just have a repeat Cesarean rather than attempt a vaginal birth. It’s less trouble for them, earns the providers more money and can be easily scheduled, unlike a birth in which the mother waits to go into labor naturally. We are here to change the way women give birth after having a C-section by providing parents with evidence-based information  to support them in their attempt at a VBAC delivery. Our VBAC Preparation Course provides parents the foundation they need to feel confident about their choice to VBAC, and our VBAC doulas are here to assist and encourage you throughout the birthing process.

Lets Do It Together!

We are Julie Francom & Meagan Heaton 

We created this VBAC class to educate, inspire, and change the attitude surrounding VBAC, one parent at a time. 

Why?

A few years back we were in your shoes, asking ourselves if we could really VBAC, whether its safe and how to do it.  It’s easy to feel like we need to figure it all out on our own. That’s what we used to do, and it was the loneliest, most challenging experience ever!

We are handing over the exact education and tools we used to inform ourselves as moms preparing for VBAC and as doulas to support VBAC parents.

Here are 10 things you’ll learn in the VBAC course:

  • How to process your previous birth(s), tackle your fears, and move forward with confidence
  • Step-by-step strategy to discovering a suitable provider for your birth and how to communicate with them
  • How to understand the risk for uterine rupture and other critical facts and stats about VBAC
  • How to navigate your birth choices when you live in an area that does not support VBAC
  • How to safely avoid the cascade of interventions and learn evidence-based reasons for when they may be needed
  • How to have conversations with people that you love but are unsupportive of your choices - even your birth partner
  • How to decrease the pressure around induction and due dates and the truth about inducing VBAC
  • How to sort through your personal beliefs about birth and align a powerhouse birth team and location with them
  • 3 techniques to help relax your mind, body, and soul and how it will increase your chances of having a VBAC
  • How to create balance in your pelvis and get your baby settled into its best position for a vaginal birth

Are you ready? Let’s do this.

This is not a typical childbirth class. We focus exclusively on the extra information you need to prepare yourself for the best chance of a successful VBAC.

Meagan and Julie are so inspiring!

I can honestly say my successful VBA2C is owed to all the women willing to share their stories. I highly recommend this podcast and blog to anyone anyone looking for facts about VBAC.
