First ICAN meeting in Vancouver

Vancouver now has an ICAN chapter! Yeah for Mieke Bray of the Cesarean Parents Network for her hard work to make this happen! The ICAN chapter met for the first time last night. We explored the different things we could be doing at the next chapter meetings. Topics that will be explored are:

  • Recovery issues (talks with yoga teachers and physiotherapists...)
  • Making spiritual cesareans a reality in our local maternity wards and improving the outcomes for both moms and babies
  • Healing through art
  • VBACs (preparing a VBAC and finding a supportive health-care provider)
  • Latest research
  • Sharing stories

ICAN will be present at the Birth Fest event on April 10th at the Britannia Community Centre

ICAN chapter meetings will be held every third wednesday of the month at the Kiwassa Neighbourhood House on Oxford Street, in the upstairs living-room. Visit ICAN Lower mainland for more info.
