Join Jenn McRobbie of The Author Incubator as she interviews author Ilia Blandina on the writing and publishing of her book, Give Birth A Chance: How to Prepare for an Empowered VBAC

Ilia has been working in obstetrics as a nurse midwife since the 1980s and it was only natural for her to author this book. With her professional background and years of experience, she can definitely help women in preparing for an empowered Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). "With the rise of the c/s rate in my community, I knew it was an important message in order to empower women's birth choices," she said.
