Hi, I'm Jen Kamel
As an internationally recognized consumer advocate and Founder of VBAC Facts®, I help birth professionals, and cesarean parents, achieve clarity on vaginal birth after cesarean through my educational courses, training programs, and consulting services.
I speak at conferences around the world, present Grand Rounds at hospitals, advise advocates seeking legislative change in their state, and serve as a expert witness in legal proceedings.
After almost 15 years in this work, I have an encyclopedic and intimate knowledge of not only the VBAC evidence, but how politics, racism, paternalism, litigation, and convenience often supersedes what birthing people want... all while they are subtlety coerced into repeat cesareans under the guise of safety.
I envision a time when every pregnant person seeking VBAC has access to unbiased information, respectful providers, and community support, so they can plan the birth of their choosing in the setting they desire. This is what drives me to do this work and create this program. Every cesarean should be wanted or needed. Coercion has no place in health care.
