VBAC Birth Stories

Kids & Family

In this episode we meet Jess who lives with her husband and 3 children in Samford Valley in Queensland. All of Jess’ babies presented breech, which was the reason behind her caesarean in the first place. Yet Jess went on to experience two very different vaginal births following two successful ECVs (External Cephalic Version) which involved her babies being manually turned to be in the cephalic (head down) position. Jess’s first VBAC included medical intervention and her second VBAC was an accidental homebirth which she still revels in the memory of. Listen to the different ways Jess prepared for both of her VBACs and hear her describe the main differences in these two recoveries. **VBAC Birth Stories features women's lived experiences.
