Celebrating 30 Years of ICAN: 30 Quotes

“It is true that naturally occuring labor can feel larger and greater than the woman birthing.  This is not so as she creates from within the very hormones that increase the strength, power, and frequency of her work of labor.  That is the good news–it is from her, for her, by her.”

~Desirre Andrews, ICAN President
