The VBAC and Cesarean Prevention Handbook will teach you how to work with VBAC moms and how to prevent cesareans in the first place. VBAC ( vaginal birth after a cesarean) is often discouraged by the medical system, but VBACs can be a healing process for mothers who have endured a cesarean and an amazing experience for birth attendants. A woman pregnant after a previous cesarean section has special needs and concerns, and it is very important that her midwife and doula are aware of these and take the proper precautions.
The VBAC and Cesarean Prevention Handbook has many articles by midwives, doulas and mothers on the powerful experience of VBAC, as well as technical information about cesarean sections and VBACs designed to help you support VBAC moms in a safe and empowering way, regardless of setting.
Like all books in the Holistic Clinical Series,The VBAC and Cesarean Prevention Handbook is a compilation of articles from past issues of Midwifery Today magazine.
