    • Parenting

In today's episode we meet Talia who shares with us her three birth stories, the first of which ended in an emergency caesarean following an induction for being post-dates.

Although the caeasarean experience was fairly positive for Talia she still sought to achieve a VBAC the second time around. At 38 years of age she was classed as a geriatric pregnancy and was told her baby was presenting breech at 34 weeks. Her public hospital only offered a caesarean for breech babies at term, leading her to pursue a vaginal breech birth with a specialist breech obstetrician. After an unsuccessful ECV (external cephalic version) she still had the full support of her medical team, doula and specialist obstetrician to pursue a vaginal birth with her frank breech baby.

Talia went on to achieve the seemingly impossible with her breech VBAC, and then a second VBAC with her son.
Listening to Talia's wisdom not only regarding her breech vaginal birth but her other two birth stories is really worthwhile. She dispels the myths about birth fear and rewrites this narrative for birthing women and their families and that's a really important message to take away.
