Wait… The VBAC Super Power

In the fourth and final part of our VBAC series I share a top-secret super-power every VBAC mama has… the word “wait.” Listen in to find out why this is such a powerful part of your VBAC toolbox <3

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • The option they won't tell you that you have…
  • Why “wait” is the most powerful word a VBAC mama can use
  • When you should go into the hospital (or call your birth team)
  • Patience is a big win when it comes to VBAC
  • What you should ask when your care team suggests an intervention

Things Mentioned on This Week's Podcast

  • MamaBaby Birthing – my online childbirth class series
  • Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering – Dr. Buckley's book has a great discussion on truly informed consent, the difference between choosing an intervention, choosing an alternative, and choosing (consciously) to do nothing. It's really valuable for any mama-to-be, and especially if you're planning a VBAC!
