5 Steps to Hiring your Best VBAC Provider.
Rock your VBAC.
Claim your power. Birth on your own terms.
You’re here because you’ve given birth before and you want a different experience this time. You’re not sure if you can do it, but you want to have a VBAC. It’s overwhelming to even think about it and you’re not sure where to begin.
You dream of what it would feel like to birth on your own terms and to feel supported, respected, and strong. You imagine a pregnancy and birth experience in which you don’t have to fight for what you want and in which you believe that you can do it.
The truth is, you can have an empowered birth. But you can’t do it alone. And you don’t have to.
I’m so excited to meet you!
You know that feeling when there’s one thing in your life that just keeps pulling you back in? You have plenty of interests and passions, but every time you put your energy elsewhere, that thing comes knocking at your door? That’s me when it comes to all things VBAC.
8 years ago I became a cesarean mama. 6 years ago I became a VBAC mama. And 2.5 years ago I became a HBAC (home birth after cesarean) mama. And over the course of the years since I’ve been mom-ing, I’ve become a birth doula, childbirth educator, doula trainer with Doula Trainings International, ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network) leader & chapter founder, and passionate birth rights advocate. You can get a feel for my birth philosophy and experience on my local doula services website. I believe from the very bottom of my heart that you should be at the center of your birth experience. No matter how you ultimately give birth, you deserve options, evidence-based information, a full support team cheering you on and loving you through the process, and an empowered birth experience. I’d be honored to be one of those team members, cheering you on and walking this path with you.
Oh, and as far as those other interests and passions…when I’m not immersed in VBAC education, advocacy and support, you can find me living a joy-filled life tag-teaming entrepreneurship and parenting duties with my husband as we unschool our 3 energetic kids. We even co-host a podcast about what we’re up to. And if I find a few minutes to sit down and drink a full cup of coffee (in the AM) or tea (in the afternoon), you might see me sneaking in a few rows on my current knitting project or catching up on the phone with mom, sister, or a close friend.
