ICAN of Los Angeles is a chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network, 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).

  • Have you had a C-section and need support from other moms who have been there?
  • Do you want VBAC information, resources and support?
  • Do you want to learn how to prevent an unnecessary C-section?
  • Do you want to promote normal, evidence-based birth practices?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you belong with ICAN!

The cesarean rate in the United States is 32.8%
Help us to reduce that number, one birth at a time.
