The International Cesarean Awareness Network, Inc. (ICAN) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, providing support for cesarean recovery, and promoting Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). ICAN of Northwest Louisiana serves Shreveport, Bossier City, and the surrounding areas.
ICAN provides a safe environment where you can speak openly about your cesarean experience, ask questions, or just listen and know you are among others who understand. Education and support is provided for parents who have experienced a difficult birth, as well as for parents who are planning for another birth.
Support group meetings are held monthly and details can be found on the ICAN facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ICANNorthwestLA.
