Come join us for our special Father's Day June meeting, where we recognize the special contribution made by fathers in the delivery room and in preparing and healing from childbirth. While dads are permitted at meetings throughout the year, we reserve our June meeting each year to hear first-person stories from the dad's perspective.
Nationally, nearly 1 in 3 women give birth by cesarean. Were you the 1 in 3? While many local hospital cesarean rates are high, the District of Columbia is among the top 3 for VBAC rates in the nation with 22.07% of women having a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean).
Join us for the DC meeting location of ICAN of NOVA every month at the Southeast Neighborhood Library (across from Eastern Market Metro) to learn more about cesarean and VBAC options locally and to receive support. Whether you're trying to avoid a cesarean, plan a family-centered cesarean, or preparing for a VBAC, ICAN supports families as they work to advocate for themselves.
The International Cesarean Awareness Network, Inc. (ICAN) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by reducing preventable cesareans through education, supporting cesarean recovery, and advocating for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Learn More About ICAN
