  • What is uterine rupture and what are the factors influencing a woman’s risk?
  • What is the “immediately available” suggestion and how does it impact access to VBAC?
  • Is it doable to plan a successful hospital VBAC?
  • How long should a woman move after a cesarean until she gets pregnant again?
  • How do the risks and benefits of VBAC vs. repeat cesarean compare?
  • What are the outcomes for moms and babies?
  • What are the risks and benefits of out-of-hospital birth?
  • How does mode of delivery impact gut colonization?
  • What is the “VBAC double standard?”
  • What are the factors for understanding medicine risk?
  • How do you tell the difference between birth myths, scare tactics, and informed consent?
  • What are a patient’s legal rights when it comes to birth?

“Bravo! I totally loved the VBAC Facts Class– I learned SO much! Jen does an astonishing job of summarizing the latest evidence on VBACs and repeat Cesareans in a way that is simple to understand. I also loved when she speaks about informed consent versus scare tactics, how to find a supportive care provider, and how to prepare for a hospital VBAC. I strongly suggest this class to anyone who is interested in learning about VBAC!” Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN of www.evidencebasedbirth.com. Read Rebecca’s entire review.

“Thanks so much for an awesome class! I want to tell mamas… please don’t be afraid to look at the stats. They do support what we intuitively know. Our bodies are prefabricated to give birth. Even in a climate that is unfavorable the majority of women who attempt VBAC are successful. Envision what we can do as we spread the information, change this climate, and become empowered birth consumers. The conditions will become more favorable and that can only produce positive results for us. Share stats. Take classes like this and share them with other women. Go into a VBAC in full knowing, if you select to VBAC after seeing accurate info. That is empowerment. These stats establish to me that I can trust my body. We are all at different places when it comes to accepting and evaluating risks. What might seem risky to one mama, might not to me or you. That is why this info is a must. Full knowledge can promote emotional healing and empowerment among birthing women. We can demand evidence based care. We can be familiar with the stats. We can go into our VBAC intuitively and trusting. This is not an one way or the highway game. This is a you know what is ideal for you scenario. As someone who works with emotional, mental, spiritual preparation for VBAC and birth quite often, I love the marriage to the intellectual preparation. They are great team members. Ok… probably don’t make a lick of sense, but I’m pumped. Thanks!” – Kelli B. Haywood, Educator and Birth Doula at Birth True Childbirth Education

"Thank you Thank You THANK YOU! Jen, I just LOVED The Truth About VBAC Webinar we completed up today. I am definitely an suggest of following your intuition and trusting innate maternal wisdom, but knowing this information will help cast away those doubts about what moms' bodies are capable of. A cesarean is not the 'birth handicap' we are led to believe it is by the mainstream. I encourage all doulas and childbirth educators and VBAC seeking moms and partners to take this class, capture this information and use it to win support from your birth team. You can VBAC with confidence having the data to reference, and Jen did an astonishing job putting it all together in a clear manner, looking at the issue from myriad perspectives. Bravo Jen . . . well done!" – Jenn D'Jammos, CCCE, Earth Mama Birth – Review of the November 2012 webinar

"Jen's VBAC Facts webinar is interesting, organized, and most importantly, evidence-based!  Some of my favorite parts included the many charts Jen created, which illustrate statistics regarding Cesarean section and VBAC in the U.S.  I'm a visual learner, and putting those numbers in appearance really prefabricated it click for me.  This class would be a great fit for parents, educators, doulas, and any health professional working with moms and babies.  A mythologic educational opportunity!" – Lindsey Rupp, CD(DONA), CLS, PCD(DONA), Blissful Transition Doula Services

“You rocked your presentation. I learned sooooo much!” — Ana Paula Markel, Founder of BINI Birth, Doula Trainer, and Childbirth Educator

“I instruct my clients and students that educating themselves is one of the most powerful paths to freedom. When it comes to birth—whether or not a woman is planning a VBAC–information is power. Jen Kamel has a masterful understanding of the research and she delivers it to moms and birth workers in a clear, accessible, and applicable way. Thanks to Jen and www.VBACfacts.com this powerful body of knowledge can be used by all of us to cultivate the ideal doable birth experiences.” — Christy Diane Farr, Life Coach with Seeds and Weeds Coaching

“This class is all about the facts. It is low pressure. It gives you information from scientific journals that will help you make the ideal decision for you and your baby. At the end, you get to decide which set of risks you are willing to accept. It opened my husband’s eyes. Even though I’ve been telling him, he needed to hear the research and the numbers. Thank you!!!” — Mother seeking VBA2C

“Thanks for an outstanding class! It was very nice meeting you. Your hard work and dedicated research is incredibly impressive. Knowledge is Power, wish it would rub off on the whole OB community. I think the trend to eventually turn that direction for women’s choice of birth options will happen as more people place that kind of pressure on the issue. Bravo to you!” — Labor & Delivery Registered Nurse seeking VBA1C

“My husband and I certainly felt even more confident after the class. I would definitely suggest it to anyone considering a VBAC.” — A mother planning VBA1C

“Jen Kamel blew me away with the personable nature in which she delivered stats and figures. She clearly explained how women can use them to comprehend their options. I wish each mortal out there who feels strange when dealing with the numbers vs intuition question would take this class and get a good look at what the integration of the two looks like.” — Shannon Mitchell, Doula & Birth Advocate

“What an astonishing and informative presentation!! Thank you so much for doing this ever-important work for birthing women!!! ” — Teresa Stire, PhDc, MA, student midwife, and VBA3C momBut I live an hour away!

The average mortal who attends the in-person class drives 45 minutes one way. 21% drive between 1 – 2 hours and 18% drive over two hours the attend this class! Don’t let distance hold you back!How can I bring “The Truth About VBAC” to my area?

Jen adores to travel and share her class!  If you are interested in hosting a class in your area, please review the Local Sponsor Agreement for more details.Is your goal to convince women to have a VBAC?

Jen had a wonderful VBAC with her son. It was the right choice for her. However, you might find that the right choice for you is a hospital VBAC or a repeat cesarean and that is your decision to make with your body. The neutral of the class is to make hard to find and interesting information relative to post-cesarean birth options easily accessible to the people who seek it, not to convince anyone to make a specific decision. This class is a respectful environment and as such, your choices will be respected. Learn more about Jen's one-of-a-kind style of advocacy.Refund policy

I am about to setup my first website and I could use some advice on the content structure of the site.?

Question by JBroste: I am about to setup my first website and I could use some advice on the content structure of the site.?
I’m looking to setup a individualized travel website at this time that can be setup for affiliate purposes. I thought I would generalize so that I could affiliate with agancies at all corners of the world. The affiliates were simple to find, but I’m quite uncertain how to structure it so as to cerculate it effectively. Perhaps first I need to come up with an effective set of words that might grant me to work around the fact that I am not going to be a bonified travel agency, but will have all of the resources plus many many more. I’ll have a blog, chat room, message board, pic gallery, and an astounding atlas site that will be hard to compete with, and so on, but I do need a place to start. Like I stated in the beginning, I would like to generalize so that people can send in pictures, articles, and individualized experiences from all over over the world. If you have any tips or recommends that could give me some appearance I would appreciate them much.Thank you all..

I am looking for 2 people from high school, but they seem to have dropped off the grappling of the earth. It’s like they didn’t exist. What do you think happened to them?

Best answer:

Answer by not 2 B fooled
HR and employers probably do not use a public way to find that info, especially background checks that are done by private companies. You maybe can try a “person locater” company, but be cautious – be sure they are legit with the BBB and not reported on www.ripoffreport.com
