In this episode, I interview EBB Professional Membership Coordinator Chanté Perryman about her first cesarean and her super-fast VBAC! Chanté is a professional birth and postpartum doula, certified childbirth educator and a maternity coach at Baby Dreams Maternity Concierge. She is also an Evidence Based Birth Instructor. Chanté is a birth advocate in central Kentucky, coordinating the Bluegrass Baby Expo and publishing a quarterly magazine for parents. She also volunteers with the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition, advocating for certified professional midwives. She will begin her studies to become a midwife in 2020, and she has three daughters.
Hear how Chanté’s first birth led her on a new career journey, and how she relates to clients using her experiences with cesarean and VBAC. We also discuss strategies for birth professionals to reach lower-income communities, and the practical challenges of balancing life as a birth professional.
