Birth Doula Serviice for parents planning a VBAC: Dublin Doula

Planning a vaginal birth after a previous c birth requires a lot of support. A doula is perfectly placed to provide that support to parents. Preparing for a VBAC is in some ways like preparing for a first birth. Depending on the reason for the original c birth there may be a lot of things to talk about and let go of during the pregnancy and a doula provides a therapeutic space in which to do this and to hopefully let go of any residual fears or anxieties.

Standard  Birth Doula Package A : Krysia Lynch
