Second Births

Date: Friday, November 13, 2020
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

Some women are concerned about their second delivery when the first one was not how they expected and a difficult one, sometimes even traumatic. Other women who have delivered their first babies by c-section want to have a vaginal delivery for their seconds and want to know more about it. In this session we will:

  • discuss common differences between first and subsequent births
  • review indications for labor interventions
  • how to reduce anxiety after a previously traumatic birth experience
  • planning a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean)

Facilitator: Sara Cooper is a Registered Midwife with the Riverdale Community Midwives.

Registration required. Current University of Toronto students, staff, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and their partners are welcome. If you have any access needs to ensure your full participation in this event, please contact the Family Care Office and we will try our best to work with you and make appropriate arrangements.
