ICAN is excited to announce Melinda Green as our newest Chapter Leader!
“I am excited to meet and help other moms and improve the VBAC climate in my area.” ~ Melinda Green, ICAN of Northwest Alabama
Please introduce yourself to ICAN:
I have a Business Degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I was an office manager for nearly 10 years. I am now a full time stay home mom and part-time Mary Kay Beauty consultant. I married my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children. I love to spend time with my family!
What led you to join ICAN?
I found the ICAN of Huntsville chapter on Facebook while in the hospital recovering from my first birth (which was a cesarean). I wanted to feel validated in my disappointment. I wanted to learn all things about birth in my area and start planning a VBAC. I did not accept it when my OB said, “You will have to have a cesarean and once a c-section, always a c-section.”
How do you share ICAN as an organization with others?
I wish others knew all ICAN does and that we are NOT only focused on VBACs. I believe a VBAC is a safe option for most healthy moms and I wish OBs and parents weren’t afraid of them!
Where will you be serving families through ICAN?
We are located in Northwest Alabama. We serve the shoals area – Florence, Tuscumbia, Muscle Shoals, Sheffield – and the surrounding areas.
