Thank you for posting this.  It's exciting to hear for myself and I'm sure for other moms that have had a cesarean (I had a c-section with my third, and final child)

Isn't that location Dr. Stratton's practice?

Yes, it is! He was very generous in allowing us to use his office for a meeting space. You should come and check it out. ICAN has been my #1 resource for support, education, and healing after my unnecessary cesarean. The women I have met are extraordinary and so brave. We really need this support in Polk, Highlands, and Hardee counties where some of our hospitals have a close to 40% cesarean rate. It's really getting out of hand.
That's great news Jessica! I would love to see a chapter on northeast side of Polk County too but Lakeland is a great start! I was just talking with a patient recently about how it was a shame the closest chapters meetings where Orlando and Tampa. I'll pass this information along. Best of luck ladies!

Yes, please pass it along!!! We are in the process of having business cards made. I can get some to you to give to your clients if you don't mind.

Jessica we would love some cards once you get them made and I may have someone who'd like to pick your brain about getting a chapter started too!
