A Mom Determined to Have a VBAC

Kaylee contacted me very early on in her pregnancy. She is a very determined mama who was determined to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). I was able to meet with Kaylee a few times throughout her pregnancy. She was planning a home birth but had to completely change her plans just a week or two before her due date. She didn’t let it shake her.

She found an OB and began planning her hospital VBAC.

Kaylee was in her birth zone when I arrived. I’m not even sure she noticed me. Kaylee hired local doula, Lisa to help support her through her labor.

Kaylee’s pushing stage went so fast, no one was sure if the doctor would make it…

Things got a little intense at the last minute…we were all thankful for the fast-acting hospital staff.
