I am so happy to share that my body, which was labeled CPD when I had my
first child who weighed 6 lbs 2 oz and I was told would never give birth
vaginally, after having 3 C-Sections gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at
home. We named her Leilani Rain. She was my biggest baby weighing in
at 8 lbs 14 oz, Head Circ. 14 inches, Length 20 inches, and Chest 14.5
inches.

I went into pre-labor on Sunday and by Tuesday I was in active labor for
about 13 1/2 hours. I had a great birthing team who pretty much stood back
and watched to only give me reassuring words when needed.

It was the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced and can not even
begin to describe how empowering it was. Having her at home made all the
difference in the world. I felt comfortable and safe there. My “broken
body” (gosh I have to laugh at that) produced exactly what I needed when I
needed it. Be it endorphins, strength, a new wind to keep going, etc. etc.
etc….. It was GREAT! No medication was ever needed, requested or thought
of. I owe that to you great people and all the books recommended and read.
Through it all I new I could do it naturally and I DID! I trusted My Body
and My Body did a great job!

This will probably make me sound a little bratty, but I honestly want to
write a letter to all those doctors who told me I could not do this.
Especially the one who made my son cry all the way home because he told us
that I was crazy and looking to kill myself and my baby. Well I did it with
no complications to baby or me. We are both fine and healthy (just a little
tired).

Ladies, I am the biggest chicken in the world and if ICAN do this, so can
you. Trust your bodies. We were created to give birth. I will always have
you in my prayers and will always be rooting for you.

VBAC Success CD

This wonderful two-track CD was created for all of our moms that understand that their body knows just how to birth a baby. It is dedicated to the amazing women who are determined to give birth vaginally after a previous Cesarean, in comfort, joy and love!

Track # 1: My VBAC Success – In deep hypnosis, you are given many powerful suggestions for vaginal birth preparation, optimal positioning of your baby, strengthening of your uterus, avoiding negativity, and complete VBAC confidence. Taking you farther than you ever imagined with positive re-framing of any fears or concerns, you are allowed to enjoy a daily dose of support and very effective inner training for VBAC success.

Track # 2: VBAC Birth Visualization – In this deeply relaxing visualization, you *create* your own positive and very successful VBAC birthing, just as you desire it to be. From the start of your birthing throughout the dilation phase and *moving past any challenges from your last birthing*, as well as easily birthing your baby into your own arms, your mental VBAC birthing rehearsal instills a blueprint for success that allows you to fully enjoy your pregnancy with this baby to the fullest. Knowing that your VBAC birth is possible, your inner mind will then create behavior and circumstances that reflect your positive VBAC Birth Visualization’s perfect plan! Enjoy.
