Reminder: ICAN Starts Next Week!

We are so proud to be able to support ICAN of Sioux Falls.  ICAN is the International Cesarean Awareness Network.  We want to educate women on the pros and cons of multiple cesareans and help educate families further, so they feel the birth choices that they make are right for them

Not all cesareans are necessary and some are just plain too hard on the women who have them.  We are hoping to help the families of South Dakota have stronger, healthier pregnancies and births, and bring a new level of knowledge to prenatal care.  We also want to help support families who do have to go through the cesarean process, so that recovery goes well for the entire family.

There is a lot of misuse of knowledge about VBAC's (vaginal births after cesareans) and we want to help you understand it!  Meetings are going to be held the first Thursday of every month, starting March 3rd at 6:30 pm.  We will be at Elegant Mommy, which is, of course, on the corner of 49th and Western.  There, you will meet your local leader of ICAN, Trisha, and she's goping to become a cast resource of knowledge on this important topic.

For more information, you can certainly go to, contact us, or Trisha at  We hope to see you there!
