Our team is committed to make sure that your birth is a peaceful, safe and comforting process. If you have preexisting high risk issues that would keep you from having a naturalized birth, we will do everything we can to give you the birth experience you would live with as little intervention as possible.


 Cesarean Section

In some cases a Cesarean Section may be the safest alternative for a healthy delivery.

In the event that a pregnancy or labor progresses and complications occur or the mother may already have certain challenges that make a normal vaginal birth a risk, a cesarean may be necessary. However, families may  have a beautiful and bonding birth experience. Please view our recent video featuring Dr. Haddad and his associate midwife Dr. Lonnie Morris helping expectant parents make plans for a lovely birth even with a scheduled C-section.


Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)

 A Vaginal Birth After Delivery (VBAC) can often be a safe choice for many women.  Should you and your doctor agree to try a VBAC, we will see if you can sustain a “trial of labor after cesarean,” or TOLAC.

When a patient is screened and is a prospect for a VBAC delivery she will go into labor with the goal to deliver vaginally.  As the labor progresses, if all is normal, a safe vaginal birth can be experienced.   As many as 4 out of 10 women, who have a trial of labor, still need to have a C-section but we are with our patients every step of the way. You and your doctor can talk about your risk for having problems during a trial of labor.

Whether it is right for you to try for a VBAC delivery will depend on several things.  Among the most important are  the circumstances of the previous C-section and how many C-sections the patient has had in the past.  Circumstances will differ from one patient to another.
