Huge thanks to Olga from me, my husband and little baby Savva. It is my second child, with my first I had c-section, so this time Vbac was my goal. I made it with Olga’s help! From the day one she was very helpful and supportive. She provided us with really important information so we made right decisions about birth plan and all the getting ready part. During the labor Olga helped me to go through contractions, supported me and actually was the leader of our small delivery team. The doctor and healthcare team at the hospital were fantastic as well, but it’s impossible to overstress the importance of Olga’s work, her support, care and professionalism. When you go to the hospital well informed, well prepared and with a clear plan, that’s a completely different story).
Vbac was not easy for me at all, but after 3 weeks I don’t remember pain, I remember the magic of giving birth to a beautiful human being. And I am so thankful to our doula for letting us have this experience and these memories.
