VBAC | My doctor said “You have no chance of having a VBAC”. Here’s how I did it.


Post image for VBAC | My doctor said “You have no chance of having a VBAC”. Here’s how I did it.

(With Dawn Seddio, Mama of 3) He walked in & dropped the words…“You have no chance of having a VBAC”. But Dawn knew he was wrong. She also knew this doctor wasn’t practicing Evidence Based Medicine. So she found a new doctor who did {& would actually support her}.

After being unprepared for her first birth & passively going along with anything the hospital staff said… she swore she’d never make that mistake again (bad experience). So she did a little research & knew the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the governing body of 90+% of Ob/Gyns) actually supports VBAC & says they are a “safe and appropriate choice for most women” with 1 prior c-section & for “some women” with 2 prior c-sections. She also knew that 45% of women (American) with a prior c-section are interested in VBAC, but 92% actually have a repeat C-section. And of the women interested in VBAC, 57% can’t find a provider or hospital willing to support them.

So if a growing body of medical research & evidence says VBACs are safe (for most women) & THE professional organization of Ob/Gyns supports VBAC…then why couldn’t Dawn find a provider to support her VBAC?

Dawn shares her super inspiring story, her thoughts & her experiences how she got creative to get the VBAC she so desperately wanted & deserved. From researching & choosing a physician she felt would support her goals, to assembling her dream team of support, to changing her diet & exercise, to hiring a homebirth midwife to accompany her to the hospital- Dawn did everything she could to have a  better birthing experience than her first.
