The VBAC Education Class
Are you planning a VBAC and don't know where or how to begin?
Are you feeling overwhelmed with what you "should" and "shouldn't" be doing?
Do you just want to feel confident, prepared and strong heading into labour?
I've got really excellent news for you - this is your answer!
The VBAC Education Class is a new birth education offering created by me, Katelyn the Doula.
I've made this class just for you: the one who NEEDS a more positive birth this time and wants to know just how to make that happen.
This class is a combination of important information, activities and questions, and labour and birth skills that can help you on your way to a better birth.
And the other GREAT news?? You've been lucky enough to stumble across the first round of The VBAC Education Class, which means you can book your place now for 50% off the standard price. There is a catch, though - in exchange for your heavily discounted class, I'll be sending out an email afterwards requesting feedback, testimonials, and reviews. I need your help to keep improving this class and content to help others in having a more positive birth, too.
If this all sounds amazing so far, let's talk a little more about what this class entails:
We'll be covering these topics:
- What you need to know about VBAC - Fears & Anxieties - Having a Better Birth - Support - Informed Decision Making - Basic Birth Physiology - Labour & Birth Skills -
And you'll also get:
- 2 of only 8 available spots in class: one for you and one for your partner - A workbook to use in class and beyond - The VBAC Further Resources E-Book - An invitation to join the Women's VBAC Support Circle (coming in the weeks following class) - Morning and Afternoon Tea - A 10% discount on further support from me should you want it -
This is a small numbers class, with only space to take 4 couples. Book your spot now to avoid missing out!
Do I need to book one or two tickets?
Just the one, one ticket covers you and your partner
Should I be pregnant already to attend this class?
It's not a pre-requisite at all! The only question would be whether you would remember the labour and birth skills, but if you practice them regularly, even through preconception and early pregnancy, you'd have them totally down pat come time to labour :-)
Is there a limit to how pregnant I should be to attend this class?
No, but I'd suggest that between 20-30 weeks would be the ideal as there is time for you to integrate the information thoroughly and practice the exercises and skills. You would be welcome to attend at any gestation, but I wouldn't want you to feel like you don't have enough time to bring any of what you learn into practice.
What do we do about lunch?
There is a cafe and a deli just a few doors up from the venue, as well as more shops within a ten minute drive in either direction. You can also bring your own lunch, if you prefer, there is a fridge we can use to store anything.
What's your deal, anyway?
I had my own birth after caesarean in 2021 right in the thick of lockdowns. After I had my first baby via caesarean, I fell headfirst into the research around VBAC and learned a WHOLE LOT. Then after I had my second baby, who I'd planned a homebirth after caesarean (HBAC) with and ended up transferring to hospital and having a repeat emergency caesarean, I realised something more about what a better birth after caesarean can look like. I've since trained as a doula, mentored women planning VBACs and supported VBAC mamas in birth. I bring a great variety of education and experience with me into this course that I've been building a long while!
