Andaluz midwives love helping women plan and achieve a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)! Over 90% of our clients intending a VBAC end up having a successful vaginal birth. Our midwives provide complete information about the risks and benefits of vaginal birth and elective cesarean so you can make the healthiest choice possible for you and your baby.
