From the folks at International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) of Portland:
In celebration of Cesarean Awareness Month we are holding a daytime meeting for the month of April. For this meeting we will allow older children to attend but please keep in mind that the topics discussed are often intense and emotional at times.
Are you pregnant and want to avoid a cesarean?
Do you need support recovery from a difficult birth?
Are you currently seeking a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you belong in ICAN!
ICAN of Portland is a chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN). Our chapter provides information and support to women preparing for a first birth, wishing to avoid an unnecessary cesarean, planning a VBAC and healing from cesarean surgery.
The cesarean rate in the United States is 32.8%, 1 in 3 women. Help us to reduce that number, one birth at a time.
We consider our online and in-person groups to be a sacred space for mutual support. Because of the intimate and private nature of the discussions taking place, these spaces are typically open only to women who have experienced a cesarean themselves. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an exemption & join us at our meeting.
All discussions should be treated as confidential.
ICAN of Portland Date: Tuesday April 16th,2013 Time: 12PM – 2PM Location: Milagros Boutique, 5433 NE 30th Ave., Portland,OR 97211 (NE 30th & Killingsworth). For more information contact: email@example.com
This documentary film features the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to survive in a “WalMart world” where workers rights are dwindling, local businesses are struggling, and shoppers prefer low prices to good products and practices.
The film will be followed by a interactive discussion about the issues raised by the film. Panelists include Mary King, labor economist and Professor of Economics Department at Portland State University, Bob Marshall, a Union Organizer for United Food & Commercial Workers Local 555, which represents 19,000 workers in grocery stores, food processing plants, and Kaiser Permanente medical workers in Oregon, and Milagros co-founder, Tony Fuentes.
