Cesarean Awareness Family Picnic

April is Cesarean Awareness Month, so Tulsa County BirthNetwork teamed up with International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN of Tulsa) to host a family picnic to raise awareness for the 1 in 3 women in our country who give birth by c-section.

We had some great t-shirts designed incorporating the Cesarean Awareness Ribbon with the slogan, “Making Birth Better,” as a fundraiser for the two organiztions. In addition to selling t-shirts, we also had a fundraising event at Top That! Pizza.
