This is a wonderful story of a woman who had two previous hospital births resulting in caesarean birth who chose to birth at home for her third child. She tells her story very eloquently in this video. She understands that she needed to be upright and mobile and to have faith in her own bodies ability and in the care and support of her midwife. This is the story of her personal journey.
If you are considering a VBAC it is important that you understand why you needed a caesarean previously. You need to be well informed of the risks of all your birth options before you decide what is best for you and your baby. You might need to talk to more than one care giver before you can truly make an informed decision. Check out the Childbirth Connections information about the risks associated with various birth options.
