Call for Birth Stories!

ribbon-mediumIn honor of Cesarean Awareness Month (CAM) this April, I would like to post one birth story per day on the blog. To do this, I need your help! Would you consider sending your birth story to for posting next month?

Your birth story can be of any type, as long as it relates to CAM. That is to say, it can be a cesarean, VBAC, HBAC, UBAC, CBAC, etc. story. In fact, it can even be a vaginal birth with no prior cesarean story if it relates to preventing cesareans, which is at the heart of ICAN’s mission.

I will not turn any birth stories down. There are 30 days in April, so if I receive more than 30 stories, I will post more than one per day throughout the month.

If you’ve never written your birth story(s) down, this is a perfect chance to do so. If you’ve already posted your birth story online, send me the link along with your permission to re-post it here. Otherwise, send me your story in a Word document.

Send all submissions to I look forward to reading your story and sharing it with the world during CAM!

    Your link is no good. Where do we send the stories too? It gives a Error 404 – Not Found error code.

    My birth story is on the ICAN Twin Cities website
    under Mikella’s birth story. (VBAC). I think it’s a pretty positive Hospial VBAC story, and shows that despite having little to no progress for like 13 hours, you can still have a wonderful VBAC. :-)
