I'm a lactation consultant, so I don't have a lot of experience, nor place to be involved in the birth choices of my clients, but I've developed a close relationship with a client during her nursing relationship with her first child.


She's currently pregnant with her second, and very much wants a VBAC.


I'm wondering, as a support person, if there's anything in particular I can do to help support her choice, and advocate for her.


The population I work with is such that they don't always get the most proficient care from their primary care and OB, and sometimes need someone to help them stand up for their desires. I'm in a position that this would be an appropriate thing for me to do, within reason.


My question is what is a reasonable degree of support to offer, in my capacity as an LC, as well as an agent for her birth choices? What support would you want? Did you get? What was most important?


My particular skill is research, and collecting data that can be presented to health care providers, so I'm wondering if that might be a way I can help.
