In America today, cesarean rates are over 30%, yet many of those performed are medically unnecessary. Women are often shocked or surprised at their cesarean experience and wish to avoid a repeat surgery with their next baby. Studies show that at least 75% of women who attempt Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) can succeed. Yet, today in our country, only 10% actually do.

The International Cesarean Awareness Network, Inc. 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).
