Once a C-Section, Always a C-Section? Not Really.

In years past, a prior cesarean section required that subsequent deliveries be by C-section as well. Not so today, though vaginal birth after C-section isn’t right for everyone.

Who VBAC is right and wrong for
“I love the approach that Dr. Patterson took with me. I felt listened to, supported, and cared for while under her care. She took time to answer all of my questions and went the extra step to check in on me in the surgery prep room. I felt like I was in good hands the entire time. I felt like I didn’t have to advocate for my health, since she was advocating for me already. I can’t say enough good things about the care I received from her and her staff.”
