VBAC PREPARATION CLASS

Primed for Birth Childbirth Education

A vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) can be healing and empowering. Primed VBAC series creates a safe space to address the special considerations you may be facing, in a community of VBAC families. In addition to everything covered in the standard series, our VBAC series speaks to VBAC safety, space to process your previous cesarean birth experience, how VBAC labors and birth are different (and how they’re the same), and giving you the tools to help things go differently this time around. Birth is never guaranteed, as many of our VBAC clients well know, and our series focuses on how to create the birth you desire and deserve however your baby needs to enter this world. Karli and Megan have years of experience working with VBAC families, and a profound respect for the strength of women who birth their babies both by cesarean birth and vaginally after a cesarean.
