The VBAC class is for women who have had a previous caeasarean birth and are hoping to have or considering a normal birth. The class will cover a chance to debrief the previous birth, finding out what a difference it makes being a VBAC, the risks of both VBAC and repeat caesarean and an opportunity to talk to and gain the support of others in the same situation, there will also be a refresher on the birth process (when to come in, pain management etc) a tour of delivery suite and a section on introducing the baby to older siblings. Lots of VBAC class groups have set up their own Facebook group after the classes and supported each other right up to and beyond the birth.
Try to attend your course between 30 and 35 weeks.
