PREPARE FOR YOUR VBAC BIRTH

Did you have a cesarean with your first child?  Are you exploring the possibility of a vaginal birth with your second?  In the comfort of your own NYC area home I will teach you a two hour Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) childbirth preparation class.

A VBAC is a safe and appropriate choice for many women who have previously experienced cesarean birth. This refresher childbirth course is a valuable resource for the unique needs of families planning a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean.

VBAC CHILDBIRTH CLASS

Janet will cover everything you need to know to prepare for your vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). The private course includes handouts that are yours to keep and props that we will use during the class.  Your questions may include:

  • The Birth Story including discussing your feelings surrounding your past and future birth.
  • ACOG: Understanding the guidelines for a healthy vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).
  • ICAN:  A key resource for families planning a VBAC
  • Review the stages and phases of labor, and ideal positions to support healthy progress.
  • Relaxation and breathing techniques for labor and pushing.
  • Understanding stage 2 and the urge to push.
  • Review expert tips on childcare for your older child during the birth, and your hospital transportation plan.
  • Breastfeeding and postpartum tips for second-timers.
  • Guidance to ease your transition as a growing family.
NYC VBAC CLASS

COST:  $300 for a 2 hour class.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once you decide to work with me, we set a date and time to meet at your NYC area home.  Because these are private VBAC childbirth classes, I have the ability to customize content to your unique needs. You are welcome to let me know your particular areas of interest so I can ensure that the class is tailored to best support you feeling prepared for your VBAC birth.

“Having a VBAC is worth it! You can do it. It is within all of us to prepare ourselves as best we can to maximize the chance of VBAC and our level of satisfaction with whatever birth outcome we may have.” - ICAN
