Group Description

Welcome to ICAN of Chicago's online forum!

The International Cesarean Awareness Network, Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, providing support for cesarean recovery, and promoting Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC).


In addition to this group, ICAN of Chicago offers supportive meetings the second Sunday of each month. They take place at 4:30-6:30pm at Sweet Pea Studio (see http://www.sweetpeasstudio.com/www.sweetpeasstudio.com/Welcome.html), 3717 N. Ravenswood Suite 213, Chicago, IL 60613. For more information please email icanofchicago@yahoo.com.


This is a no flaming area - strictly enforced. All topics within the subject of birth are welcome, and all participants are asked to treat each other with respect. Disrespectful participants will be removed from the list. Please, no lurkers. A new member to the list must respond to the list owner with an introduction before approval will be granted to join the list. An introduction can be as much or as little as you'd like, but we'd like to know your name and why you're joining our group. Also, please do note that there are professionals on this list -- doulas, midwives, and lactation consultants. This list may not be archived by external sources, nor reproduced without prior consent.
