Birthready ▶ Birth Support ▶ Vaginal Birth After Caesarean

Thank you so much for your time & wisdom last at our session last night. It was extremely beneficial to have you here and answer so many questions. While I had done lots of thinking I hadn’t done much talking with my partner. Now I feel so encouraged to know we really understands how each other think and feel about our VBAC. I feel that he will be a strong support now and that we are on the same page – an invaluable feeling.

VBAC Services:

Are you pregnant again and wondering whether to give VBAC a go or not?  Whats involved?  Is it safe?  Do I have the right support?

The common trend is still to have a caesarean despite solid evidence showing that VBAC is a safe options for most women.  The Victorian maternity services performance indicators 09-10 statistics states that 30.3% of women will give VBAC a go and from this 53.5% succeed.  So what can you do about the factors that can help you influence a positive outcome for you and your family?

I explore these with you and work with you to feel more confident, inspired, mentally ready and physically fit for trusting your natural birthing ability and navigating your way through.

Before we meet I offer a simple worksheet with questions you can discuss with your partner to start the VBAC conversation moving in the right direction.  Anything that helps you get clarity about what you do and don’t want will help you get what you want.  I have tips and tricks to help you along the way.  I have stories that inspire and I have been witness to many women birthing their babies in their own power and seeing their pride and inner strength soar.

Dear Erika, we are so grateful to have had your support, guidance and encouragement during Juniper’s birth. Your expert skills and knowledge of birth was invaluable. Your presence was calming and reassuring through many hours of labour. Thank you for giving me strength when things felt difficult. We appreciate the hard work you did, and we are certain that we could not have done it without you! We are so happy with how everything worked out, and are grateful that, with your support, Juniper has had the best possible start to life. Our family have so many positive memories surrounding her arrival. Thank you with all our hearts.
