Choosing your model of care and individual care provider is one of the most important decisions of your VBAC journey. And with growing awareness of all the different ways this model of care could look, it is becoming an increasingly complex decision.

As always - which model of care will be best for you comes down to, well, you. What you want from this journey and how you want to feel during pregnancy and birth will largely dictate which option is best for you. And options are limited in many areas, especially in rural locations.
