Why should you take this course?

I want you to ask yourself these questions and be completely honest:

  • Am I confident in supporting VBAC clients?

  • Can I give my clients clear, current and unbiased information on the pros and cons of VBAC?

  • Do I know the latest guidelines from NICE and RCOG?

  • Do I know what the actual risk of uterine scar rupture is and how to minimise it?

  • Can I assist clients in creating the optimal conditions for VBAC?


If you answered ‘no/sort of/not sure’ to any of these, then you could benefit from taking the VBAC for Birthworkers course. Learn how to confidently support your VBAC clients in just four weeks. 

What have others said about Helena's VBAC training?

This course should be mandatory for all birthworkers.

Absolutely invaluable for any birthworker looking to help their clients achieve the births they desire in the face of a system that may be working against them.
