During February 2018, birth stories and articles featured on ICAN’s blog will be focused on CBACs – Cesarean Birth After a Cesarean. It is a term used to describe a birth that was planned as a VBAC, Vaginal Birth After a Cesarean, but instead resulted in another cesarean.
“I had a c-section in December of 2007. After that, I became a birth doula and got informed about birth. I planned a home birth for my next pregnancy. After 67 hours, we transferred to a baby friendly hospital and had a family-centered cesarean. He was born January 16, 2011, at 12:16 am. 8lbs 11oz of perfection. It wasn’t what we planned for, but it was beautiful nonetheless. I plan on going for a vba2c my next time around. I couldn’t have made it through my labor without my partner. He was and is my rock. The pictures were taken by my amazing doula.”
