Meet the Leadership: Alexis Scott, ICAN of Fargo-Moorhead

 ICAN is excited to announce Alexis Scott

as our newest Chapter Leader!

“There are always choices; no one else should be in control of your voice.” 

~ Alexis Scott, ICAN of Fargo-Moorhead

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I graduated from college with a degree in Business. I speak Spanish fluently and have worked mostly in Human Service positions. I have been staying home full-time with my 3 boys for almost 2 years now and work part-time at a local women’s shelter in the evenings. I have had 2 successful open-heart surgeries after being diagnosed with CHD after birth. My family enjoys time out at our lake cabin, boating, fishing during the summer and trying to embrace the cold weather here in Fargo in the winter. I love remodeling and DIY projects and am a huge fan of Joanna Gaines. I am a proud mom of loss, our third son, Max was stillborn at 22 weeks after being fatally diagnosed with Thanatophoric Dysplasia in 2014.

What led you to join ICAN? What part of being an ICAN Chapter Leader are you most excited about and why?

I am a regular participant and leader at ICAN of Twin Cities. I’m excited to have an opportunity to educate and create change in the local birth community. ICAN is a passionate organization looking to improve health and outcomes for moms. We are passionate because of personal experiences.

Where will you be serving families through ICAN?

We will focus on the local Fargo-Moorhead area. The two local hospitals will not share any stats with us and it’s very disappointing. We also have one hospital with no midwives and another hospital with VBAC’s only allowed with OB’s. We would like that to change and give women more choices in the hospital. But the area is growing. There are signs from all over the community that we are changing and growing and embracing more natural options. I expect our birth climate to be very different in 5-10 years.
 When does your chapter meet?
Our first meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 17th at 7:05 pm at Atomic Coffee in Fargo, ND. See the event info here!

Congratulations, Alexis!
