A VBA2C Birth Story – Elizabeth Quinn

Elizabeth Quinn is married to Percy and they are raising three girls in Jackson, Mississippi. Her daughters are Chesley Cox, 6 years old, Anderson Lillian ‘Anders’ 4 years old, and Adella Calhoon 22 months old.

In almost seven years of motherhood she’s gone from the totally oblivious first time mom, focused on the nursery and stroller and clueless about all things birth related to a certifiable birth junkie. The journey from unwanted, unplanned, unnecessary cesarean section to incredible VBA2C (vaginal birth after two cesareans) has given her a passion for birth education and vbac support.

She’s now a co-leader of her local ICAN chapter, coordinator of the Jackson, MS Improving Birth Rally, and administrator of a Facebook group that advocates for evidence based practices in maternity care called Birth Circle.

Elizabeth did her fair share of research and preparation for her VBAC and has since been connected with even more amazing birth resources so you’ll definitely want to check out her resource list. 

You can listen to Elizabeth’s fourth birth story (another VBAC) with her first BOY after three girls here.
