Great Inspirational VBAMC Video

I saw this at "The Wonder of Birth," and it was so inspiring that I had to post it here too!! This is a video by ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network) showing the possibilities and the triumphs of VBAMC (vaginal birth after multiple cesareans). I know two women who have in recent months had VBA3C births, so they are definitely possible! Don't give up hope for your VBAC!

(Hopefully women in Arizona will soon gain the legal right to midwife-attended homebirth VBAC, something that is currently denied to us.)


  1. Love this video! I am going to link to it if you don't mind on my own blog:)


  2. I know women have gone on to have vaginal births after several cesareans, but I don't think I could risk it. Even after I had only had 3 c-sections, it just wasn't a risk I was willing to take. If something happened to the baby, I don't think I could live with the knowledge that I could have done something to prevent it.

    If I KNEW I wouldn't rupture and the baby wouldn't have problems with a vaginal birth, I would try for a VBA4C. However, it seems like the risks are too high.
