Are you planning a vaginal birth after having a caesarean birth? Then this is the section for you. I have pulled together information on this website and from the web to help inform and encourage you. Emotions for women who achieve a VBAC are many, most feel a victory and a relief. Many women feel a deep, profound sense of healing. The World Health Organisation said no country should have a cesarean rate above 10-15%. Now in Australia we have caesarean birth rates in excess of 30% - which is totally unacceptable. Women are being subjected to unnecessary surgery. Researching VBAC enables you to find out the real risks of vaginal birth and elective caesarean so you can make an informed decision for you and your baby. Please browse the articles, stories, videos and links I've put together.
