I just bought ten of ICANs Cesarean Awareness month posters.

What should I do with them?

OH, here are the posters: http://www.ican-online.org/shop/ican_camposter.htm

I'd say hang them at OB offices or WIC clinics, but it might be hard to get permission to do so.

I leave old Mothering's at those places and they always disappear.

Libraries, health food stores, wonder if there are places to post at Baby's R Us or maternity clothing stores? Chiropractors, massage therapists/bodyworkers, any other alternative practitioners. Hmm, gave myself some ideas

I actually know Laura from another forum I post on. She is the best and very talented.

They may let you post them at the WIC office or health department. You should at least try.

I'm thinking about what you should do with them. I'm not sure... What are your thoughts? It's a great image. I kind of wish it was available on a postcard or flyer that I could send out to doctors and hospital administrators.

I don't know, but seeing that image brought tears to my eyes -- that truly is a picture that speaks 1000 words.

I would say 80% of the moms in my LLL group had c-sections -- you would not believe how many times these moms stay after and talk about their births, they have such a need to talk about it. I was thinking of starting an ICAN Chapter here just because I love these moms so much.
