VBAC Birth Stories

Kids & Family

In today's episode we meet Catherine from the Central Coast of NSW. She is a mother of two boys who speaks to us about her fertility struggles and emergency caesarean which was actually a refreshingly positive experience. Her first baby was posterior and she laboured for a long time with him before being taken into theatre guided by her private obstetrician who she had a very good relationship with. In the early stages of her VBAC pregnancy she was told she had a low PAPP-A level (placental related function associated with increased chance of low birth weight, pre-term baby and other pregnancy related complications) and she shares how this was managed by her obstetrician. Catherine speaks about the unspoken doubt of approaching a VBAC birth and the variety of tools she used to assist herself the second time around. Listen to find out what lessons Catherine took away from her first birth and how she gave herself the best chance of experiencing the kind of birth she always wanted and ultimately achieved.~ Notes ~IVF Australia: https://www.ivf.com.auCatherine's Obstetrician's website: https://intuitionprivate.com.auCatherine's Midwife for her VBAC: https://www.thenurtury.com.auYou can find Catherine on Instagram if you would like to connect with her: @catherinesammut **VBAC Birth Stories features women's lived experiences.
