Vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) was once the norm in all hospitals, but times have changed. Join Jessica Brumley, Certified Nurse Midwife and Director of the University of South Florida Division of Midwifery, at the March 18, 2017 Tampa Birth and Baby Expo to learn how to work with your midwife or physician to optimize your chance of success.

As the Director of the USF Midwives, Jessica Brumley works to promote normal physiologic birth for all of the women choosing Tampa General Hospital for their birth, including women who previously delivered via cesarean section.  

A woman deserves the opportunity to make informed decisions in regards to her birth experience, and a provider that is a partner in her care. She should know the risk and benefits of all her birthing options.
— Jessica Brumley
