Blissful Midwifery strongly supports vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) as an option for women who have had a previous cesarean birth and according to the American Pregnancy Association, 90% of women who have undergone cesarean deliveries are candidates for VBAC.  ​​

Raquel understands that some births, whether vaginal or cesarean, can leave women feeling disappointed or saddened. Past birth experiences can have a profound effect on your health. Each woman comes to Blissful Midwifery with a unique set of health needs. Raquel will personalize your care and welcomes an open dialogue with you.

Part of her work as your midwife is to learn about the circumstances of your cesarean birth and to counsel you regarding your options. There are many factors that influence decision-making about VBAC. Some women will choose to try to have their next baby vaginally and others will not. Making this decision is very personal. Raquel respects and will honor your values and perspectives.
