Summer Birth Stories: Home Birth After 2 Cesareans & Castor Oil

The Birthful Podcast: Summer Birth Stories #2

We continue with our special “Birth Stories for the Summer” series.

Today’s story comes from Alison Spath and it has a bit of everything, as it was a planned homebirth after two cesareans (HBA2C). I won’t tell you just yet how it turned out, so you are going to have to listen until the end. But there was castor oil involved.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean, with Nancy Wainer

The Birthful Podcast: Episode #12

In this episode of the Birthful Podcast, I am going to be talking about vaginal birth after cesarean or VBACs, and more specifically home VBACs, with none other than the woman who coined the term, Nancy Wainer. Nancy’s got story after birth story to debunk the myth that once a cesarean, always a cesarean, along with suggestions on how to avoid cesareans in general.
This episode is going to be a little different from the others, in that it will be in two sections. The thing is, after I first spoke to Nancy, I felt there were a few important topics we didn’t get to. So I called her back and she graciously agreed to do a second recording to answer them. Enjoy.
