CBAC and Repeat Cesarean: The Myth of Choice -- Online Webinar Presented by Kelly Fischer

There are lots of opinions and assumptions when it comes to having a cesarean. Many moms who’ve had a cesarean know first hand about the struggles of dealing with these assumptions and opinions, including lack of emotional support from friends and family, and difficulties finding a supportive care provider, just to name a few. Thanks to educational and advocacy efforts, some important progress has been made in helping parents and birth professionals expand their views - and thanks to the internet, it’s getting easier to find information and support!

But what happens when a mom has another cesarean? Suddenly there’s a whole new set of assumptions and opinions - among parents, birth professionals and friends. What if you worked really hard to avoid another cesarean, but it happened anyhow? What if you “chose” a repeat cesarean? What if you “didn’t have a choice” at all? The topic of CBAC is rarely discussed, yet more than 90% of moms in the U.S. with a prior cesarean have another cesarean, so it’s clearly a topic that deserves attention.

For this presentation, Kelly Fischer created a survey with over 40 questions and asked moms to talk about their experiences of having another cesarean (whether by incidence, or by “choice”). Through hearing the stories from these women, you will gain a better understanding of the wide range of experiences that are possible, as well as some of their common themes. Topics include:

The alphabet soup of birth after cesarean acronyms
The myth of choice
How we label having another cesarean
What about family centered cesarean?
Feeling in or out of control when having another cesarean
Does family centered cesarean count as VBAC support?

Sharing our stories is one of the best ways to build a culture of empathy and create change!

____________
KELLY’S BIO:

Kelly Fischer is a cesarean and VBAC mom. She started ICAN of Northeast Iowa in February 2010, when her VBAC baby was 2 months old, so that other families would not have to go through what she did without support. In the 4 years since it was founded, ICAN of Northeast Iowa has grown to be one of ICAN's largest and most active chapters, regularly hosting special events including movie premieres, guest speakers, and educational events. Her continuing education has included Pam England’s Birth Story Listening tele-course, Birthing Racial Justice (a training with Susan Raffo and Heather Hackman about racism in birthwork), and Postpartum Support International’s certificate training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. Fischer recently became ICAN's Midwest Regional Coordinator, and is honored to offer support for the Midwest ICAN chapters. She is also a Birthing From Within Mentor and offers postpartum classes to help with healing after a difficult birth.
