My first son was born via unnecessary cesarean in 2010, I knew before I left the hospital that was something I never wanted to do again. Late 2013, we discovered we were expecting our 2nd. My journey to VBAC had begun. I spent the first half of my pregnancy leaving doctors offices feeling defeated and we knew we had to find a better way. We decided we would have a home birth and Shannon would be the midwife to help deliver our baby. I immediately felt the stress melt away. I now had a provider I trusted and could talk to. I always looked forward to our appointments and always left the appointments confident and excited. Our birth was everything we could have hoped and more. We know we made the right choice in hiring Shannon and would do it all over again in a heartbeat.  Christine, Bryan, mother of Charles Elliott born August 3, 2014
