Join us as we share VBAC Birth Stories Full of Hope and Inspiration! We are a team of expert doulas trained in supporting VBAC, have had VBAC's of our own, and work extensively with VBAC women and their providers. We are here to provide detailed VBAC and Cesarean prevention stories and facts in a simple, consolidated format. When we were moms preparing to VBAC, it was stories and information like we will be sharing in this podcast that helped fine tune our intuition and build confidence in our birth preparation. We hope this does the same for you! The purpose of this podcast is to educate and inform- it is not to replace advice from any qualified medical professional.

Being a VBAC mom myself I can’t wait to hear all of the inspiring stories this podcast will bring. Reading and hearing birth stories helped me so much during my labor and I’m so grateful for podcasts like this!
Such a great resource!
As a doula and c-section mom myself, this podcast is such a great resource. Hearing the VBAC stories of others is so valuable, and Julie and Meagan are both fabulous Doulas and are a wealth of knowledge and experience. I can’t wait for more episodes! - Beth
