I decided to write a book after the birth of my fourth child because honestly, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had worked so hard towards my VBA3C. It seemed weird, even with four kids to not have something to work on and prepare, besides normal life. My heart was overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me and I knew I wanted to share more of not just my story, but I really believe this is all about Him.

The Power of the Word

Scriptures Preparing for my VBAC, God taught me to trust Him and His Words more than my thoughts or any other man's opinions.  These scriptures I professed and spoke out loud during my long walks alone and in labor. I knew that the best words to come out of my own mouth would be His. I share them with you that you may gain strength and confidence whatever mountain you may be facing.     "God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind." 2...

The Day That Changed My Life

"You don't understand," I told him. "This will be a turning point for me. This will be a crucial day in my life and I will never be the same." I looked at him with tears in my eyes as I attempted to keep them from running down my face. Sitting there with my three children and my big baby belly, I wanted to express my feelings and my wishes. Students in the room while I was laboring would be a major distraction to me. Any other time in my life...

Fences – Keeping Things In, Keeping Things Out

Recently, a friend of ours put a fence up in their yard. It was something they thought about, wanted and planned. They had their reasons. They wanted to keep certain things contained in a specific area. But they also wanted to keep certain things out of this specific area. While planning, they made sure they kept this fence on *their* property. In fact, they put it a few feet away from their property line, closer to their home, ensuring that this fence, was in fact on their property. Because no...

Jessica’s VBA3C

  My story began on June 8, 2007. I was 21 years old and pregnant with my first child, my son Everett. I was young, naive when I look back, and I really was not prepared for labor. I thought I was. I thought I had gone to enough classes, read all of the books and I was delivering at a well respected hospital. My mom had 3 children naturally, my grandmother 4 (one was even breech) and my great grandmother delivered 5 babies naturally. I was meant to...

Ximena’s VBAC – The Story of Baby Hope

I am so excited to finally share my testimony. I received prenatal care with the same provider throughout my pregnancy. From the beginning I searched for a provider who would assist me with my desire to have a vaginal birth after a cesarean. My doctor provided good prenatal care throughout my pregnancy. We differed opinions towards the end of my pregnancy when I reached my 40 weeks and my baby had not dropped and my cervix was not "favorable". When we reached this point (my baby didn't arrive...

Amy’s Story – A VBA2C

Hi friends! My friend Amy shares her birth story to VBA2C. I was able to watch from a distance as she displayed courage, faith in her body and faith in God during pregnancy and as  she patiently allowed labor to happen on her body's time. Please leave her a comment below. Thank you so much for sharing Amy! My backstory: We were blessed with our first daughter in 2008. I didn't do any research and just started going to an OB office that several friends recommended. I liked the OB's fine and...
