International Cesarean Awareness Network
Education, Support, & Advocacy for Birth Justice & Healing
Peers connected in ICAN’s support spaces
ICAN is 100% volunteer from the Board of Directors, to Executive Teams, Committees, and Local community Chapter Leaders. Over 12,000 volunteer hours were given toward our mission in 2020.
ICAN Chapter leaders host free support meetings around the globe to improve access to support, eduction, and advocacy.
What began 40 years ago as a kitchen-table childbirth education class between neighbors has become a peer-to-peer network that educates & supports birthing people and advocates for dignified Cesareans worldwide.
