The International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) is excited to announce the kickoff of its Speaker Series.  Please join me as I interview Sara Lamm, Director (with Mary Wigmore) and co-producer of Birth Story on Tuesday, May 14, 2013. 


Birth Story has been screened in over 200 locations worldwide including several locations hosted by local ICAN chapters. Birth Story is a documentary that examines Ina May Gaskin and her work as a midwife on The Farm. The speaker series is FREE for members. Membership is $30 a year. The cost for non-members is $20 per event.  To support ICAN's mission by becoming a member, visit our homepage at

The vision of ICAN is to make the Speaker Series a monthly event. Our host will be examining current issues around maternity care in a fresh thought-provoking format by interviewing a variety of childbirth experts. We will post a recording of this event on the ICAN website. The next event is scheduled for July 2013.
