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.

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.

I'm Lia (she/her), a certified doula and childbirth educator working in Southern California since 2011. My first baby was born in 1998 and ever since, birth has been my passion: guiding, coaching, supporting, championing folks through pregnancy and labor. Both of my babies were born vaginally, unmedicated, but I'm a c-section baby (whose mother went on to have 2 HBACs) and VBAC is my specialty. I know first hand the impact of an unnecessary c-section and how familial attitudes toward birth can change the world. Let's do this.
