Healing Childbirth Injuries the Natural Way With Pelvic Physical Therapy

For many of us, holistically-minded parenting started before our babies were even born.

Not much went according to plan. Read More

Cesarean Awareness Month Shines Light on State of Birth in Northern Virginia

Every April, the International Cesarean Awareness Network, or ICAN, celebrates Cesarean Awareness Month to bring awareness to its work. ICAN is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, providing support for cesarean recovery, and promoting Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC).

The organization’s vision statement is: “A reduction in the cesarean rate driven by women assuming responsibility for their healthcare by making evidence-based, risk appropriate childbirth decisions.” Read the full statement of beliefs on ICAN’s website.

As April draws to a close, Lisa Keyser, co-leader of the Northern Virginia Chapter of ICAN, shares the state of birth and VBAC in Northern Virginia in this guest post. Read More
