For mamas who haven’t had a cesarean choose Calm Labor Confident Birth

You Can Have The VBAC Birth YOU Want!

Get the training you need to stand up for your choice and confidently take charge of your birth

Are you ready to write your birth story?

  • Not the one everyone else is pressuring you to have. A birth story where you make the decisions and call the shots.
  • One where you know what’s coming and you’re totally in control… One where you feel completely capable of assessing the situation and knowing what choice to make and when.
  • Yes, you’ve given birth before. But it didn’t *quite* go the way you hoped…
  • And now you know that you can’t just show up at the hospital expecting someone to walk you through what’s happening.
  • You understand that if you’re not informed before you get to the hospital and feeling strong once you get there…
  • Those decisions will be made FOR you, not WITH you.

VBAC births are special, not because they’re dangerous or inherently scary.

It’s because, by the time a mama gets to her VBAC, she’s had to endure a ton of resistance. A lot of negativity. And she feels alone.

This is why I want to introduce you to The VBAC Lab.

LABOR NURSE MAMA

A VBAC is a courageous choice to make.

Even though you know it’s better for your body and your baby if you can pull it off, there are more than a few roadblocks standing in your way.

For one, there’s finding a provider who will support you (without rules).

Then there’s the constant criticism from others.

Always having to defend your choice. (even though evidence backs you up!)

Here’s the thing, mama.

VBAC isn’t impossible. It’s not inherently dangerous. And it’s definitely not magic.

But without proper preparation — you can find yourself being pushed and even bullied into making choices you *know* in your heart aren’t in your or your baby’s best interest.

I'm here to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
LABOR NURSE MAMA

Up to 80% of mamas who try for VBAC are successful!

The VBAC Lab will give you all the tools you need to succeed.

 

  • Knowledge about the process of labor and vaginal delivery
  • Understanding how to avoid exhaustion and frustration
  • The ability to confidently communicate your needs
  • Knowing your rights and how to exercise them
  • Informed consent for interventions
  • Proper support in the labor room
 

Hey, I'm Trish! But some call me the VBAC fairy

During my 15+ years in labor + delivery, I've seen first hand the difference between a mama who’s studied and one that’s just showing up and hoping for the best. If you're *really* serious about a VBAC, you can't leave it to chance, mama. 

I want you to walk out of the hospital smiling and triumphant…Rather than feeling like you failed…

When you haven’t spent thousands of hours in a delivery room, it can be tough to imagine the torture on a mama’s face as she’s being pressured into interventions or wheeled into the operating room for a c-section…

And it's even harder to realize that when it comes to this delivery, you won’t have the chance for a do-over…

Which is why the time is now to start writing your VBAC birth story. I’ve created the next best thing.

It’s a program that takes all of my experience with VBAC mamas and puts the training, preparation, and education for you and your partner in one place so you can create that VBAC victory.

Welcome to The VBAC Lab, mama.

8 Powerful VBAC Modules

6 Hours of Video-Based Lessons online inside an app, easily accessible by you and your partner!

1 ~ Healing From Your Previous Birth

Did you know that you've been traumatized by your previous C-section? Sometimes, it's not obvious – because we tend to suppress those emotions of disappointment and regret…But you definitely need to process that trauma so you can fully open your heart and mind to your VBAC birth.

2 ~ Navigating Your VBAC Choice

You probably know that you're going to face some resistance to your VBAC choice. This module will make you feel grounded and sure of yourself. You'll be able to defend your decision to pursue a VBAC – even in the face of providers, family, and friends trying to change your mind.

In this module, we'll go deep into the stats and facts you need to arm yourself and confidently defend your choice

3 ~ Prepare for Your VBAC Birth

Here I start digging into mindset and helping you understand just how much your thoughts affect your labor, so you can keep that cool, calm, confidence throughout the whole process. 

If you're feeling anxious about giving birth, we have easy to implement tips.

4 ~ Understand Labor & Delivery

 Women have been giving birth for thousands of years – without the need for medical interventions…which means that with education, you'll be able to avoid unnecessary interventions and interruptions in the natural process of labor and childbirth.

Here I'll teach you how to tell if it's “time” or just a false labor cue.

We'll go in-depth, showing you the anatomy and physiology – so you *really* understand what your body is capable of.

5 ~ During Labor: VBAC Style

Do you know when you to say, “No, I do not want you to use an internal monitor, or yes, it's ok for you to break my water”? After taking this module, you'll be ready for labor contractions + create a birth plan that works for you. 

6 ~ The RoadBlocks, Warning Signs, and Concerns During Pregnancy

Yep, sometimes there are complications that crop up no matter how well you prepare. But I'm here to teach you the warning signs so you can sound the alert the second you think something's wrong.

Nearly half of the Cesareans in first-time moms are because they were labeled “Failure to Progress”…I'll show you what that means and how to avoid that label… so you can stay out of the operating room.

7 ~ Testing During Pregnancy

It's important to understand what tests you'll need to go through during your pregnancy. I'll walk you through what to expect at each one so there are no surprises.

8 ~ Cesarean

1 out of 3 births ends in cesarean. Which is why I want you to be ready just in case. This module is an important part of your preparation – one you don't want to skip…and no other birth courses talk about this.

Hear What Other Mamas Have to Say About The VBAC Lab

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I do all this work and still end up in a cesarean?

After completing The VBAC Lab, you will feel empowered. You are given the tools to make decisions for yourself. If you do choose c-section, you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is YOUR informed choice and that no one else made the choice for you.

What if I am putting myself and my baby at risk?

Mama, this is exactly why I included the module, Navigating Your VBAC Choice, because I understand this fear. But here's what you need to know. All, I MEAN ALL, the evidence supports VBAC as the safest route of delivery if you are a candidate. And guess what? 90% of previous cesarean patients are candidates!

I'm not preggo yet, how long do I have to access?

Girl, this course is yours for life. You will have access to the course and any updates we make. It's yours to explore at your own pace. You can do this course at any time throughout your pregnancy – or even if you are currently planning a future pregnancy. Doing the course before you're pregnant would give you tools that are invaluable in choosing your VBAC friendly provider.

(Add on the Calm Mama Society for ongoing support and workshops!)

My doctor says I'm a candidate but he doesn't do a VBAC?

You have the right to have a VBAC if you are a candidate. Choosing a VBAC friendly doctor is key. Inside The VBAC Lab we will discuss how to have conversations with your provider and how to understand your rights and how to get a new doctor if you need to.

What makes your VBAC course different than others?

This is an all-inclusive birth course designed with the cesarean patient in mind.  Not only do you get comprehensive education but also personalized support through weekly group coaching.

This course teaches you how to patiently navigate a slow VBAC labor with understanding and power. 

My body failed me last time, what if I can't do it?

I want you to remind yourself that your body is perfect. Your body was made to birth this baby. This baby was made for YOUR body. Birth is not new. Women throughout all of history have been birthing babies. You've got this.

What if I hire a doula?

Having a doula is an absolute game-changer! Their hands-on support is incredible and can truly transform your birth experience. But guess what? Evidence-based education can have the same impact.

 

Here's the deal: you don't want to leave your birth up to chance or rely solely on someone else. You need to be in charge, fully empowered, and understand every step of your pregnancy and birth journey. It's time to take control! 💪🤰

My partner is not on board, he thinks I am being risky

This is a common complaint among my students. Their partner is scared. I highly suggest you sign up in time for the Bonus Offer: Labor Support 101. After completing the course and the mini course offer, your partner will be like my student Mattie's husband. He whispered in her ear (right after the provider said she needed a repeat cesarean), “Mattie we are doing this your way!” and guess what? They were holding their baby skin to skin shortly after. 

What is your Virtual Services?

Mama, this is a truly unique opportunity where you'll have unrestricted access to my doulas, health coaches, and me!

Monthly workshops ranging from pregnancy to baby must-knows. Our network of experts is coming alongside you through QA's and workshops.

We offer a “Labor Bat Signal” DM option after 37 weeks; we will have you create a group chat with our doulas and me, where you have unlimited access to us both.

Not sure if your water broke, no problem; send us a pic! In labor or not in labor, ask a labor nurse!

And once you deliver you can stay with us for unheard-of postpartum support including a weekly hangout with our team.

Our virtual access is a doula and nurse support community where you can be you and feel safe becoming the mama you desire to be.

You can choose to upgrade to an Virtual-Access Option at checkout; this will give you the virtual access and 3 bonus classes.

( we do not offer refunds due to the product's digital nature, please email info@labornursemama.com to cancel at any time!)
