24 | Michela's Homebirth after an Emergency Caesarean (HBAC); Breech, ECV, Private Obstetrician, Private Midwife, Doula

VBAC Birth Stories

Kids & Family

In today’s episode we chat to Michela, a mum of two living with her husband in Brisbane. Michela knew before she fell pregnant that she wanted to approach birth in a way that resonated more with her life philosophies and hired a private midwife initially to support her at her local hospital’s birth centre, but as her pregnancy progressed she decided a homebirth would actually be a better fit. Unfortunately circumstances changed, and Michela’s plans to have an intervention-free birth at home turned out to be the complete opposite of what ultimately transpired.She knew she wanted to do things differently in her next pregnancy and highlights to us the key difference between her first and second birth and what she learnt along the way to her healing homebirth after caesarean. We hope our listeners can take away a lot from Michela’s learnings throughout her VBAC journey.Episode sponsor:This episode of VBAC Birth Stories is brought to you by Calmbirth.
