Welcome to the ICAN of Saskatoon Website.


ICAN of Saskatoon is the local chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network for the city of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan, Canada.  The International Cesarean Awareness Network is a non-profit advocacy and support group whose mission is to improve maternal and child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, provide support for cesarean recovery, and promote vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).


The local chapter has meetings every month. Meetings will be either informational or supportive in nature.  At the informational meetings, accurate, up to date information about cesareans and VBAC is presented in order to educate women about their birth options and to help them to understand the risks and benefits of each option to allow them to decide which is best for them.  The support meetings are for sharing birth stories and for discussing their feelings about their experience in order to aid in their recovery.
