April is Cesarean Awareness Month. Today I am bringing you a virtual interview with local Phoenix ICAN Chapter co-leader, Jenni Froment, as well as a VLOG with Stephanie Stanley, founder and instructor at Give-Birth.org.
I interviewed Stephanie about her childbirth classes last week. She came back to sit down with me and talk about the mission of ICAN, and we talked a little about peer-to-peer support. Here is what she had to say about this amazing group:
And here is my virtual interview with Jenni Fromment, one of the co-leaders of our local ICAN chapter in Phoenix, AZ.
If you have heard about an ICAN chapter in your area, and you still haven't made it to a meeting, I encourage you to take the first step and get to a meeting this month. You may feel all alone...as Stephanie mentioned, find your courage and come out to a meeting. You are not alone. There is more to birth than,"at least you have a healthy baby". This support group knows it and is available to walk your postpartum journey with you.
