2023-02-15 | Baby Ahoy Season 3 – Episode 1 Maya’s VBAC Journey


This episode is about Maya sharing her birth stories. Her first Surgical (C-Section) Birth in India and her second Vaginal Birth after C- Section (VBAC) at the hospital in The Netherlands.


Maya was born & raised in India. She now calls The Netherlands her home and lives with her partner, Gaurav and her two daughters, Naina & Diya.  In this episode, Maya & I talk about her first surgical birth, her second vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC), how she &  her husband Gaurav have adapted their role as  parents of  two small children, sleep deprivation,  how Maya has slowly transitioned back into work, struggles & challenges that comes with Breastfeeding & Postpartum.

In our conversation Maya talks about her first birthing experience in India because her first daughter was breach and had to have a surgical birth.  We then talk about VBAC which is Vaginal Birth After C-section.

At 4min into the conversation, Maya mentions about turning the baby. The procedure is called External Cephalic Version (ECV). External cephalic version (ECV) is a procedure that tries to turn a breech baby into a head-down position so you can have a normal vaginal birth. To know more about ECV, please speak to your care provider.
