Jen Wood Chapter co-leaderChapter Co-Leader: Jen Wood

Jen has been involved with ICAN since 2012. Her son was born in 2011 via planned cesarean for breech presentation and she had a VBAC with her daughter in 2013. She believes that every woman has the right to be treated with respect and dignity at every phase of life. Jen desires for women to be educated in their body's capabilities and their full range of choices within and outside of the medical model and so she supports a woman's right to choose her own birth experience and seek to facilitate her wishes.
