Frequently Asked Questions
Who joins VBAC Facts® Professional Membership?
If you are a perinatal professional who is passionate about VBAC and want to gain the knowledge that will best equip families in advocating for their desired births.
Why don't you sell classes individually? Why can't I buy an individual handout?
Bundling the classes and resources together for the membership allows us to keep the pricing accessible! Selling the courses individually would require the pricing to be substantially higher for access to our entire library of VBAC education. We are committed to providing accessible VBAC education for professionals and the membership allows us to do so at a low monthly fee!
Does membership offer continuing education hours?
Yes! All of VBAC Facts® online trainings have been approved for continuing education hours by the California Board of Registered Nursing. These continuing education hours are accepted by all RN boards, ACNM, NARM (including the Midwifery Bridge Certificate), ICEA, Lamaze, DONA, and CAPPA as well as many other medical and health organizations.
In order to earn the CEs, you must attend all lectures and earn 80% on the post-course quiz. Upon completing a training, you will receive an email with further directions.
Not all organizations accept nursing continuing education hours or hours earned via on-line courses. Check with your particular organization. Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Continuing Education Provider #16238.
What happens if I can't attend a live event?
The lives of a birth professional can be unpredictable. For this reason, every event is recorded so you will never miss a thing! Plus, you can attend any of our live or recorded events from your mobile, tablet, or computer 24/7, so you can stay up to date on the evidence, no matter where you are or what time it is!
Do you offer group rates?
Absolutely! Registering with a group secures a discounted rate for the lifetime of your membership. Group rates ensure that physician/ midwifery practices, doula agencies, childbirth educators, and L&D units stay current on the research together! The more people in your community who join, the easier it will be for you to increase VBAC access! Groups of three or more can contact us for more information. The bigger the group, the deeper the discount!
Do you offer a discounted rate for BIPOC?
Absolutely! A sliding scale is available for BIPOC perinatal professionals. Contact us for more information.
How can I contribute to the BIPOC Scholarship Fund to support BIPOC perinatal professionals in their VBAC education?
The VBAC Facts® BIPOC Scholarship Fund enables us to make membership more accessible to the BIPOC community for whom the VBAC journey carries additional stressors due to institutionalized racism. We welcome your contributions as we stand in solidarity with BIPOC perinatal professionals.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of our various downloadable materials, refunds are available within 3 days of your purchase.
