VBAC/HBAC Preparation Workshop - £120

VBAC means Vaginal Birth After Caesarean and HBAC means Home Birth after Caesarean section. In the UK 1 in 4 women will give birth by C section, however just because you have had 1 (or more) C section, it does not mean you have to have another. In most cases women are now very much encouraged to plan for a vaginal birth in subsequent babies after a C section.

This workshop is a private class in the comfort of your own home over 2 sessions. Take time to discuss your previous birth, what happened, how you felt and how you feel now about giving birth again.

Find out the most up to date benefits and risks of a VBAC/HBAC so you make an informed decision about the type of care you will allow.

Find out about your options of care. Discuss what happens if you do have another Caesarean section and your choices.

 

Many women have found it helpful to have a copy of their previous birth notes to hand which we can go through together.
