I've posted this story about a vaginal birth after three cesareans before but I met the mom in the video (and the midwives!) and feel compelled to post again. I think that sometimes, when we are VBACing, we can see videos like this and nagging doubts might cause us to ask, did it really happen? Well I can vouch for this video! The mom gave a powerful talk at one of our sessions and I put two and two together and asked her afterwards if she was the mom in the video. Watching her beautiful son run around all weekend and being a witness to the strength of this amazing woman was one of the highlights of the weekend midwifery retreat. Growing up my heroes were almost always people I knew and this momma is certainly one of my heroines. I have to remember to pass this video along to the mom who will be celebrating her own VBA3C in the next couple of months. I have much to write about after an energizing, hope-filled, community-building weekend but first I need to finish unpacking.
