The VBAC Workshop

 a 2hr workshop for pregnant parents who are planning a
vaginal birth after caesarean
(VBAC) 

You will learn how to maximise your chances of a successful VBAC in our maternity care system by

  • understanding the statistics

  • looking at evidence-based information about your options

  • considering tools for making informed decisions

We will explore:

  • Unpacking your previous birthing experiences

  • Understanding the VBAC statistics in Victoria & Australia

  • What options & choices you need to consider once you decide you want a VBAC

  • What to expect from the maternity care system

  • Breaking down the “risks” & looking at what the evidence says

  • Chances of success

  • Tips for planning a positive birth – whichever way it turns out

You will also receive a PDF workbook with important information summarised & have plenty of opportunities to ask questions of your knowledgeable midwife presenter - both during the workshop & afterwards


Your investment: $75

(includes pregnant participant & 1 support person)
 

  • Student midwives participating in continuity of care experiences are welcome to attend with you, free of charge.

  • Price is the same for in-person  & online classes as the content, offerings & inclusions are  identical between both offerings.

Our Refund Policy
Due to our small group sizes & high demand, payment is required in full at time of booking & is non-refundable in the event of change of mind, other engagements, forgetting to attend or illness.  Full refunds will only be given for unexpected early births (provided you are less than 36 weeks pregnant at the start of the course) or if we need to cancel the course. If you wish to move your booking to another course date, please get in touch at least 7 days before the start of your booked course (space permitting).  If you’d like to pay in installments, please contact us on 03 9376 7474.
 

For in-person classes
If presenters have any COVID-19 symptoms, to keep everyone safe they will stay home & we will do our best to arrange another presenter to teach the course. In the event this is not possible, as a last resort, we will live-stream the class via Zoom instead & presenters will contact you to confirm arrangements.  No full or partial refunds apply in this instance.
If you have any symptoms on the day: please get in touch & we will offer you a Zoom link so you can still participate in the course from home.
