Today we are talking with Genavie who has quite the unique story. Her Cesarean was her fifth birth after having four vaginal deliveries. It traumatized her and her husband so much that they decided they were done having kids and he got a vasectomy. After they had a few years to heal emotionally and physically they wanted to have another baby and got a vasectomy reversal. Six months after that they got pregnant. 5 and a half years after having her C-section, they welcomed baby #6 at home with a midwife in a beautiful HBAC. We then discuss healing from birth trauma. You can find out more about that and all things VBAC on our VBAC blog.
