January ICAN meeting and more

Tonight, our local group met to watch the new The VBAC Dilemma: What Your Options Really Are by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein. It was very informative. If you are planning a VBAC, I highly recommend it.

Of course, we also discussed our past birth experiences and our experiences with local care providers. Our group is growing and it is awesome to meet and connect with woman who have been where we have.

Okay, here is a post from the national ICAN blog site.It is a list of some great birth blogs to read and enjoy.
