Become an ICAN Professional

ICAN’s Professional Member Network is a resource not only for consumers, but for also for birth professionals, including doulas, childbirth educators, chiropractors, massage therapists, hypnobirth therapists, midwives – anyone who feels they have a service they can provide to pregnant women. The ICAN main website gets around 4,000 hits per month, ranking high in browser searches for “cesarean” as well as “VBAC.” Many of our initial contacts from women are when women seek “VBAC friendly” birth professionals. We hope to use our professional member program as a way to connect women to birth professionals in their area that support ICAN’s mission. ICAN Professionals also receive ICAN’s occasional newsletter, The Clarion, discounts at ICAN’s bookstore and to the ICAN conference, and free access to ICAN webinars. Professionals who enroll through ICAN of Nashville will also be listed on this local directory and have first dibs at speaking opportunities at ICAN meetings. Stand against the cesarean epidemic and be a part of the solution.
