VBAC Support Circle
Vaginal Birth After [prior] Cesarean
Bimonthly Drop-In - 1st & 3rd Mondays, 7 - 8:30pm
Have you had a Cesarean (or 2 or 3)?
- Are you curious about your choices for your next birth?
- Are you planning a VBAC and looking for support or resources?
- Have you had a VBAC and looking to shout it from the roof tops and encourage others?!
Attempting a Vaginal Birth After a Cesarean, or VBAC, is a responsible and empowering option for most women who have given birth by Cesarean in the past. The culture surrounding VBACs, though, can be a bit difficult to navigate, confusing, and overwhelming!
Family, friends, and birth professionals all seem to have an opinion, and all too often one opinion conflicts with another.
The VBAC Support Circle is a safe place for moms to gather with the purpose of giving and receiving information and support around the many joys and challenges of VBACs, and to aid in decision-making! Ask questions, share resources, heal, and inspire, all while connecting with other moms who are exploring a similar path.
Each group will include a discussion topic as well as an open forum. Discussions include topics such as asking for support, birth preparation, choosing a supportive doctor/midwife, HBAC and WBAC, birth art, doulas, managing the naysayers, and much more.
You are encouraged to bring something to write in…it is nice to have somewhere to record thoughts, feelings, advice, questions, and inspirations while on your journey through pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Journals are also available for purchase.
And in keeping with the Harmony philosophy, you will be supported in finding your own best path and navigating whatever comes to be, while having the opportunity to connect with professionals and other families growing their knowledge, experience, belly, and baby along with you.
Facilitated by Krystal Long, a mother of two and founder of The Santa Cruz Village Birth & Family Enrichment Center, LLC.
Open for drop-in for all expectant or planning moms. No pre-registration is required, but you may purchase a drop-in credit or 4-group pass online now, and have one less thing to do when you arrive.
