What To Know About C-sections and VBAC

Live, virtual class


Cesareans account for about 32.1% of births in the United States. So even if it’s not the plan for your birth, it’s a great idea to get information about what to expect in case a cesarean birth is necessary.

The primary cesarean rate (first births) has gone up recently. The repeat cesarean rate has gone down. That means that more people who have had a cesarean births in the past are choosing a vaginal birth for their next child (VBAC).

In this class we will discuss:

  • How to prepare for a planned cesarean birth
  • Benefits and risks of VBAC
  • What to expect in the case of an unplanned or planned cesarean
  • Recovery after a cesarean birth

Partners are welcome and encouraged to participate.
