About Us

We are an online community dedicated to supporting vaginal births after cesarean section. A VBAC isn’t for everyone, but every woman has the right to consider it. This site aims to help women open an informed dialogue with their healthcare providers while offering a supportive environment for dialogue between women.

VBAC Community is a non-profit website dedicated to connecting VBAC candidates.

As a VBAC candidate myself, I felt rather isolated during my pregnancy, and when I did finally have a VBAC, an enourmouse personal acheivement, no one in my life could appreciate what it meant to me. This site is designed to rectify this situation occuring for othe VBAC hopefuls.

VBAC Community does not provide medical advice. Always seek counsel from your certified medical practitioner.

    Dear VBAC Community:

    I am the Administrator of a 14 doctor OB/GYN practice that strongly supports VBAC in Laguna Hills, California. We have a high success rate.

    How can our practice be listed on your site?

    Thank you!

    In April 2007, I had a vbac at home attended by midwifes and it was the most profoundly liberating, life altering experience of my life! I’m now a UC Berkeley Peace and Conflict major who is writing her first term paper on the violent effects of the technological age in which we live- one of which is the techno medical model of maternity care in the US.
    I am glad to know a community like this exists and can be used to gain awareness within that model.

    Hi there, I am a vbac mama also. I gave birth to our fourth child, our first daughter, this past April. She was born vaginally and completely med/drug free and I have a J scar from the emergency section I experienced for the birth of my third son. I am also part of an online community called “Special Scars, Special Women” and wow, what a difference those women made in my life when I found myself alone, almost hopeless, and desperate for a vbac as I felt that simply signing up for another section b/c I had a J scar was not the safest thing for my baby and I. Please know that there is more information out there and mamas like me (with a “special” or otherwise not “regular/low transverse” uterine incision scar) have hope for vbac!! Check out http://www.specialscars.org for more info!!

      I am pregnant with my fourth (also a girl after 3 boys!). I am going to try for a vbac this time, but had some questions that I would like to ask if you don’t mind.
      Thank you!
