VBAC Birth Stories

Kids & Family

In today’s episode we meet Hannah, a midwife and mum of two living with her husband in Brisbane. Hannah was not expecting her first birth to end in a caesarean at all, but despite a difficult and challenging labour her son’s birth was overall a positive experience.Hannah suffered an early miscarriage in-between her son and her daughter’s births, but knew when the time came to give birth again she would definitely try for a VBAC.Her third pregnancy was going pretty smoothly until she was diagnosed with gestational hypertension. Her hospital’s policy was to induce, which concerned Hannah as she knew the risks involved with induction and how it could potentially negatively affect her chances of experiencing the vaginal birth she was hoping for.It was her midwife colleagues who restored faith in her, and Hannah ended up achieving a swift drug-free induced VBAC that even caught her by surprise.Possible trigger: Please note there is mention of infant mortality in relation to uterine rupture in this episode.~ Notes ~Book reference: Silent Knife by Nancy Wainer Cohen and Lois Estner.Pregnancy Loss:https://www.bearsofhope.org.auhttps://rednosegriefandloss.org.auhttps://miscarriagesupport.org.au**VBAC Birth Stories features women's lived experiences.
