If you're serious about a natural childbirth after cesarean,
this book is a tremendous resource. It provides practical
tips from start to finish - from selecting your delivery team
to handling the difficulties of labor to the joys of your
newborn at your breast. There are facts and data to support
your choices and to help you become a well-educated
medical consumer. Finally, it inspires you to try, and
chapter 8 will inspire your husband/partner/coach as well.
The Checklist and Appendices are also full of useful info.
I was ready to bring on the contractions by the time I was done

Natural Childbirth After Cesarean begins (as most books on the VBAC subject do) by refuting the old wive's tales...ruptured uterus, vaginal breech deliveries dangerous, etc. I am pleased with the fact that both writers are speaking from experience and not just medical or personal opinion (not all authors on this subject can say the same). On a more personal level, this book made me search out my own reasons for wanting a VBAC and emphasized that knowing this reason is crucial to the success of the birth. However, as someone considering home birth I thought that the book was a little too "pro-hospital" and mentioned a home birth only for those "extremists". This view was not backed up with any research but stemmed from personal opinion,which was a little disappointing. This aside, this book should be included in your "top ten" list as you do your VBAC research.

I loved this book. The authors' stories of their own VBACs are inspiring, and while they really promote natural childbirth, there is good information here that will help you even if you are not sure that is what you want. If you have a breech baby, be SURE to read this. One of the authors had 4 breech babies and she gives lots of suggestions for turning them!

This is a wonderful book for anyone planning a natural birth after having a previous cesarean. It's very informative with a wonderful labor checklist at the back for helping with many situations that may arise during labor and delivery. Take it with you to the hospital

A VBAC book written by professionals AND women who have been there.
This powerful book includes what you can do to hlep you decide if VBAC is
right for you, how to go about preparing for the VBAC (physically and emotionally),
working with your careprovider, and much more!

Has some nice stories, but this book is about anything BUT natural childbirth VBAC. HEAVILY medicalized, and not very encouraging in a womans ability to birth normally after cesarean. If you want a hospital birth with maximum drugs, this is for you. Otherwise, save your money and time and just read Birthing From Within!
