International Cesarean Awareness Network

The International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN), founded in 1982, is a network of people concerned about the incidence of cesarean birth. It aims to reduce the rate of cesarean deliveries, to provide a forum for discussion, and to provide a support network for women recovering from cesarean deliveries. ICAN provides current information on cesarean prevention and vaginal birth after cesarean. Chapters are active across the United States and overseas. ICAN has developed an educational program on cesarean prevention and vaginal birth after cesarean. ICAN is supported by membership dues and contributions.
