Announcing New Chapter Leader Jennifer Wood of Northern Virginia

ICAN is excited to announce Jennifer Wood as our newest chapter leader! She has completed training and will be leading ICAN of Northern Virginia!


Tell us about the birth climate in your area.

ICAN of Northern Virginia serves Northern Virginia and the DC area. The best thing about our area is the birth workers! But there are too many cesareans and too many planned repeats.

How did you find out about ICAN? What drew you to our organization?

I found ICAN through Facebook. I’m really excited about helping women process and feel supported. I wish people knew that ICAN is not only for VBAC moms. All are welcome even if VBAC is not for them. After all, knowledge is power; the more true facts you have the better prepared you are.

Please share a little about yourself.

I am a mom of 2 (one cesarean for breech, one VBAC) married for 8 years to my high school sweetheart. We are a military family who moves a lot. I love to travel. My friends would describe me as energetic, funny, and compassionate.

Welcome, Jennifer! We can’t wait to see how you impact your community!
