Childbirth Connection has teamed with iVillage to bring you access to their extensive message board community. iVillage's well-established pregnancy message boards cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from debates on the risks and benefits of VBAC and repeat c-section to light-hearted conversations about pregnancy symptoms. We love the breadth of topics they cover. Their boards are carefully monitored by a staff of paid moderators who remove spam and offensive messages.

Use the message boards to discuss your ideas and concerns with other women who share your questions or who have experienced similar issues. Use the Childbirth Connection website to check what current studies say about the decisions you are considering.
