Better Cesarean/VBAC for Doulas and Parents

Originally a continuing education class for trained doulas, this workshop now also welcomes parents who are preparing for their own VBAC. We cover how parents, doulas, midwives and OBs can cooperate to create a healthier, more emotionally positive cesarean experience. Then we delve into approaches for prenatal and labor use which increase rates of vaginal birth after cesarean, addressing both psychological factors as well as specific physical techniques. Saturday, July 29 & Sunday, July 30th, 2017. Northampton, Massachusetts. More information.
