    Default VBAC Information Sessions (QLD)!!!!!

    I have Kelly's permission to post this

    Birthtalk?s new VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) Course begins next Thursday, 21st Feb.

    This is an 8 session course designed to support and inform those working towards an empowering birth after caesarean.

    Those considering their options for birth after a previous caesarean will have the opportunity to get their questions and concerns addressed, to enable them to make the best possible decision for their family.

    The VBAC Course dovetails into our ?Path to a Better Birth? Antenatal Course. This combination of the VBAC Course and the Antenatal Course is our newest way of supporting women wanting information about Birth After Caesarean.

    These 8 sessions allow a couple to gain maximum information and support so they can make their decisions based on knowledge rather than fear, and work towards an empowering experience.

    Course structure

    Feb 21 : Thinking of VBAC? : the stats, the facts, and a ?big picture? understanding of your options

    This is a fantastic idea, there's just no information out in the mainstream for women who want a vbac.
    Birthtalk is great, I went to one of their meetings recently and will definitely be going to more.
    They also run a great support group for women trying to overcome birth trauma.

    I wish I could go but I live 2 hrs from Brisbane, and I have the little one as well oh geee.... what a bugger! Maybe I should give them a ring to see about private consultaions or something theres no support for Vbac up this way!

    This is fantastic for women it should be offered in all hospitals!

    Danielle if you email them, Melissa and Debby would be more than happy to give you some advice. They are really knowlegable in this area - Melissa's had a vbac herself and Debby is a midwife. Get in touch with them
