I was contacted the other day by a lady who used to apprentice with my home birth midwife. She was contacting me about a family wisdom conference in my town on Saturday, she is doing a speech on Cesarean's and VBAC awareness. I was asked if I'd like to share my VBAC birth photos with her so she can share them during her discussion.

I am excited to do this! I am uploading a bunch for her now and letting her choose which ones she'd like to share. I told my husband that I want to go on Saturday to see that one part of the conference (its a huge one at the local college) because I feel strongly about VBAC/HBAC's. Also, it will be neat to see my photos along with other local VBAC moms (I think i'm the only HBAC though) and hear her speech.

It went great! I thought I updated, must not have. I was the only set of photos there aside from the presenters. She spoke about VBAC facts c-sections and home births. It was really informative and hopefully it helped the pregnant and trying to get pregnant parents who previously had a c-section.

It was nice to see someone speak out for HBAC/VBAC's instead of against. I didn't feel like a freak
