The heart and soul of CARES continues to be the wonderful women (and their families!) who make up the CARES community. These women come to coffee mornings or CARES events, they support CARES from the side lines by renewing their membership, they actively roll up their sleeves and volunteer for CARES, they may share their stories, research and birth plans with others for the benefit of all, and they offer advice, kindness and understanding publicly on the facebook wall and privately via emailed support.

All who have come into contact with CARES comment on the strong sense of community our organisation has to offer. As a support group formed by women for women, CARES was built on the wisdom that it is together, as a united front, that we will truly access the information and support we need to enjoy empowered Caesarean births and VBACs.
