Hi everyone, At the class we'll also look at current recommendations for monitoring your baby during a VBAC. We'll also discuss the pros and cons of pain relief options. A few Cork Mums are interested in taking the class so if I can get 5 Mums I'll make the trip down. Any questions feel free to PM me. Tracy http://www.VBACIreland.com http://www.GentleBirth.com

Thanks Sparkly - glad you liked it! I think this class will be really helpful for TTCing Mums who've had previous caesareans as well as those who are currently looking at their options and currently pregnant. Doing your homework before becoming pregnant means Mums can relax and enjoy their pregnancies a lot more. Best of luck this week - it's such an exciting time for you!! Tracy
