VBAC Doula Package
The VBAC Doula Package is a comprehensive program perfectly designed to help set you up for success and increase your ability and confidence to have a vaginal birth after a prior cesarean.
As a Certified VBAC Doula, I am here to provide you with the education, wisdom and tools you need to help move you from a place of uncertainty and overwhelm to the confident empowered birthing person you want to be.
I have supported literally hundreds of families during their birth for nearly a decade. And I am proud to report my clients have a 90% vaginal birth rate (an ultra-low 10% c-section rate)–in comparison to the 35%-40% average cesarean rate of our local area hospitals. My VBAC “success rate” is 85%, well above the national average. ACOG states in their position paper that it is reasonable to assume most women have a 60-80% chance of having a successful VBAC
This program is right for you if:
- You feel uncertain and overwhelmed by the amount of information out there on having a VBAC.
- You want to know the difference between information based on facts vs. fear.
- You are looking to become confident and empowered in your choices and education.
- You want to feel stronger and more prepared to achieve a VBAC.
- You are ready to feel 100% in control of your VBAC plan.
- You want an experienced doula to help guide you on this journey.
