VBAC or vaginal birth after Caesarean is possible for lots of women.

There are a few ‘rules’ to help get you to your goal of a vaginal birth after having a Caesarean but the primary driver is…you have to want it.

There are some extra interventions that will happen and knowing this before your labour is key so the interventions don’t detract from your experience.

In this podcast we talk about:

  • What makes you a good candidate for a successful VBAC
  • Why there needs to be monitoring during a VBAC labour
  • What pain relief is available
  • How to get in the right mindset for your VBAC
  • Why knowing the ‘rules’ of a VBAC labour helps
  • What the elephant in the room is when it comes to VBAC.

Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.
