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 blog@ican-online.org 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 blog@ican-online.org. 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
    http://www.icantwincities.org/
    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. :-)
