Healing from Birth Trauma

Today’s guest is Kacey Nelkin Pedersen who is a mother to two boys. After her first birth resulted in an unplanned c-section, Kacey felt that so much was missing from her birth experience.  It wasn’t until she found out that she was expecting again that she realized just how traumatic that experience was and how badly she wanted to have a vaginal birth the second time, if possible.

VBAC Birth Story

Kacey and her husband went on an educational and eye-opening journey toward eventually having a highly transformative, drug-free VBAC experience.  Kacey and her husband, Adam, live in Lincoln, NE raising their two beautiful boys. Kacey’s story is really amazing to hear, she is now such an informed advocate for positive and informed birth experiences.
