Baby Got VBAC is a collection of stories meant to inspire women who have had a previous cesarean birth and are looking into their options for their next birthing experience, particularly into having a vaginal birth after a cesarean. This book is unique in that a different woman authors each chapter. Some of these women are VBAC moms, and others are professionals who support VBAC moms. Each author will bring you into their world where you will get to know their personality and receive their specific wisdom. This book is full of healing, knowledge, hope, and inspiration.
Through her observations and experiences as a nurse-midwife and mother (who birthed once by cesarean, once at home), Pam realized the need for a radically new model of childbirth preparation and a birth story process. She is the author of Birthing From Within, Labyrinth of Birth, and her newest book, Ancient Map for Modern Birth—released February 6, 2017. Pam England founded the organization Birthing From Within (2000) to offer childbirth mentor and doula training and certification; she also founded Birth Story Listening, a distance-learning course. Pam lives in Albuquerque. Over the past 19 years, she has connected with countless parents and birth professionals around the US and world.

Roanna is the co-founder and host of www.BirthPlanRadio.com, the executive action chair of Human Rights in Childbirth, an award-winning international speaker, and most importantly, a mother. In her not-so-humble opinion, the latter makes her a true birth expert.
"While I'm grateful for the incredible support I've received from both doctors and midwives, the vast majority of births, like every other bodily function, are best managed by the body in question. It's time to put women's needs, feelings, and intuition back in the center of the birth process. Women are the rock-stars of birth; professionals are the backup singers."
Determined to overcome her fears and give birth on her own term after two cesareans, Roanna set out on a quest to reclaim her power. She searched, through hijab, in the heart of Eqypt. In Northern Uganda, she looked in the eyes of war survivors as she served them in childbirth. Hoping it would seep in through her soles, like heat from a fire, she walked on hot coals in the wilds of Canada. She searched the skies of Alaska by parasail, and the place where only blue remains in the depths of the Caribbean Sea. She found it in the last place she expected it to be. It was more powerful, fiercer, and more feminine than she could have imagined. Exploring this, sharing it, is her purpose: an endless war-chant coursing through her veins and pouring through her voice and fingertips to you.
