Types of Birth: What is the Right kind of birth for Me?


Hundreds of Moms, Doctors, Midwives, Doulas  (find out if a Doula is worth the money here) & others who’ve helped bring 55,000+ babies into this world keep sharing the same comment. Moms who have the best birth experiences know their options & make decisions with their provider.

Birth doesn’t just happenYou have options. (click to tweet)

Different options give you very different birth experiences (most result in a healthy baby & healthy mom). Whether you have a vaginal birth or C-Section, there are different benefits & risks to consider. While benefits & risks effect you & your baby today, it’s important you understand they also have implications moving forward.

Vaginal Birth- When baby enters the world via the birth canal at the end of the vagina. You know, your vadge.

C-Section- Also know as Cesarean Sections. C-Sections are major abdominal surgery. But the quick version is that the baby is retrieved by a surgeon from your uterus after incisions are made in your abdominal wall & then your uterus. Your vagina is not involved in a c-section birth. 

Vaginal after C-Section (VBAC)- This is exactly as it sounds. If you’ve had a prior c-section, you may be a good candidate for a VBAC. You have to chat with your provider to figure out:

  1. If you want to have a VBAC.
  2. If you’re a good candidate for it 
  3. If your provider will fully support you in your wish.


It’s a blessing to live in a country where we have options. Moms often don’t know their options because some birthing classes & some providers never discuss ALL the options. Options that you might want & might be best for you. 

Over & Over… we hear how differently 2nd time moms did their pregnancy & birth once they knew ALL their options {& what the possibilities were}. That’s why we’re here, to get those moms to share with you everything they Wish They Knew, so you can have the best birth possible.
