In an ideal world,VBAC parents would be treated just like any other birthing parents.

While there are certain VBAC risks however, they are often over dramatized and parents aren't given the chance for VBAC. We are here to change that!

However, we have to work together to change things and that is one of the reasons we created these courses: to educate, inspire, and change the attitude surrounding VBAC, one parent at a time. 

It’s easy to feel like we need to figure it all out on our own. That’s what we used to do, and it was the loneliest, most ineffective thing we’ve ever done.

why do it alone when we can do it together?

We are Julie Francom & Meagan Heaton and we created The VBAC Link Courses for parents and doulas just like you!

Why? Because we were there, a few years back, asking ourselves if we could really VBAC and even support VBAC parents. We made some BIG changes, and now? 

We are handing over the exact education and tools we used to inform ourselves as moms preparing for VBAC and as doulas to support VBAC parents. 
"I saw the value in the small details that Meagan and Julie took the time and research to find. The facts and the resources to back it all up are amazing. I will utilize the last few pages of the book a lot and thank Julie and Meagan for doing such a great job at giving us the resources we need to be confident in our learning."
