It is an honor…

I first became involved with ICAN after the birth of my oldest son. I had a traumatic, unplanned cesarean. ICAN was incredibly supportive during my healing process and preparation for the birth of my second son, a homebirth after cesarean. It is an honor to support, educate, and empower people on their own journey.
Candace Gesicki
Cleveland Chiropractic and Integrative Health Center

Father of 3

Being a father of 3 boys, I have seen first hand the lack of care and the lack of information that is available to new mothers. I value the opportunity to educate and empower mothers on the birth process and be a resource for them to achieve the birth that they WANT!

More than one good way…

I believe that each labor and birth is a unique and miraculous experience. I also believe that there is more than one good way to have a baby and that parents should have the proper tools available for informed consent and informed refusal.

Hannah Elsey is an Ohio birth doula
+ an ⭐️ ICAN of Summit County Professional Member ⭐️ !

She provides expectant families in OH with evidence-based birth education, support, and encouragement.

As a doula, my commitment is to the expecting parents. I provide unbiased, evidence-based education as well as constant support, safety, and encouragement for parents in Akron, Ohio, and surrounding communities. I am passionate about uniting the entire birth team in order to best serve the parents. I look for "gaps" in the entire process- from prenatal through postpartum- and find ways to fill them in order to provide parents with every ounce of care that they deserve.

Becoming an ICAN Professional Member is important to me because I have personally found healing and support within their organization as a Cesarean mom. It is my hope to promote the same healing and support that I have experienced within our community.
