ICAN is excited to announce Michelle Kemp as our newest Chapter Leader!
“I believe that every woman deserves to make her own informed choices about how she will birth, who will be with her, and where she will be.” ~ Michelle Kemp, ICAN of Chicago
Please introduce yourself to ICAN:
I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have three kids that I stay home with, (ages 6, 3.5, and 1.5). My first was a C-section for prolonged rupture of waters, my second was a long labor resulting in a VBAC and my third was a quick unmedicated VBAC. We love to travel and see new places with our kids. I love birth, reading, and researching things of interest.
What led you to join ICAN?
I learned about ICAN after my first son was born by C-section. I wanted to learn everything I could about birth. ICAN was a great source for education and support for me.
How do you share ICAN as an organization with others?
I wish more people were aware that it exists. I am most excited about bringing ICAN closer to some of the members in our area.
Where will you be serving families through ICAN?
Our chapter is located in Chicago and we also cover the suburbs in the surrounding area. We have many hospitals in the area that do VBACs – you just have to be willing to look.
Please share your upcoming Chapter meeting:
The next meeting will be December 9th, 2 pm, at Odyssey Play Place, 395 W Northwest Highway, Palatine, IL 60067
