April is Cesarean Awareness Month

April is National Cesarean Awareness Month. There will be special events related to cesarean section birth and the prevention of, information for, and recovery from these births. ICAN of Knoxville (International Cesarean Awareness Network ) will hold their monthly meeting on April 7th, 2010 at 6pm at the Earth Fare of Turkey Creek. The meeting is free and lasts one hour, with the topic of : Emotional Recovery after a Cesarean Section. The speaker will be Angie Collins. We hope you will join us.

If you do not live in the Knoxville area, but would like to participate, I encourage you to contact your local ICAN chapter. These chapters can be found on the ICAN website at www.ican-online.org. If you have any difficulty locating a chapter or event for your area, please do not hesitate to email me at beautifulbirths2003@yahoo.com.

ICAN is also offering a discount on all memberships — what a great way to have access to members only seminars/webinars, as well as supporting an All-Volunteer organization and the women, babies, families they serve!

In honor of Cesarean Awareness Month, I am offering a 10% discount off of any and all of my services. The services need not be used in the month of April, however, for labor and postpartum doula services a contract must be signed, along with the usual deposit. For classes, see my calendar at www.knoxvilledoula.com for  what is available. If there is not a class on the schedule that you are currently interested in, please let me know your estimated due month and what specific needs you have regarding classes. The 10% discount, if used towards classes, would apply with pre-payment and registration of the class. If you are a friend or family member of someone who may be interested in having a doula or attending my classes, the 10% would apply towards gift certificates/family payments.
