VBAC Course

“I wanted to let you know : I gave birth to my beautiful daughter in July.  Yes, another VBAC.  She is a delightful bundle of joy – now 6 weeks old and getting rather fat.  I am very much loving being a mother again and am enjoying my days with her.  Actually am finding it hard to put her down.  Thank you again for the support from Birthtalk.  Birth really is amazing.” Nicole, who attended Birthtalk’s VBAC Course prior to her first VBAC, writing to us after her second VBAC


This is an 8 session course designed to support and inform those working towards an empowering birth after caesarean.

Those considering their options for birth after a previous caesarean will have the opportunity to get their questions and concerns addressed, to enable them to make the best possible decision for their family.

These 8 sessions allow a couple to gain maximum information and support so they can make their decisions based on knowledge rather than fear, and work towards an empowering experience.
