Beth is one of Meagan’s own VBAC clients and boy, does she have a story to share! Her VBAC labor started with her water breaking and progressing slowly.

Her baby was born after an amazing experience that really testifies to the mother-baby connection. This is a must-listen episode!

Destiny is one of our very favorite people! She has been following along with the podcast from the very beginning. We were constantly connected to her through Instagram for her pregnancy and she was even messaging us from her home during her HBAC. She had a long and hard labor, but had the right team and the right tools in her pocket to use to have a safe birth at home. She even had a chiropractor come and adjust her while she was in labor. We then talk about how visiting a chiropractor can help you have a vaginal birth. You can find our more about that AND links to Destiny’s home birth video on our VBAC blog at: thevbaclink.com/blog.
