Thanks to all the mamas who posted that they were over 35 when they had or are going to have their first. DH and I have been ttc for over a year now and AF is currently here thereby ensuring I will be over 35 when we have our first. Reading these helps me feel better about it. Thanks again!
Thanks everyone! The midwives we're considering use these large black rubbermaid tubs so I'm not sure if there's a water heater with them or not, but I'm assuming 'no' since I was just at a friends birth and she used this type of tub and I saw no heater. But they have two hot water heaters. We have a deep claw foot tub in our home and I've never been able to fill it even half way using hot water. And when I fill my tub I always use only hot water. It takes about 20mins to...
Hi DH and I are ttc right now but planning on a homebirth when the time comes. Thing is I know I'll want a tub for laboring and possibly birthing in but I KNOW we will run out of hot water LONG before the tub is full. Has anyone else been in this position and successfully managed a solution? If so, what did you do? What are some ideas? I know we could heat up water on the stove as well, but I'm just concerned with the overall idea. I'm looking for some thoughts from ladies...
Subbing!
borealis: If you truly feel I have 'slandered' a midwife, then I invite you to reread what I wrote. I feel you are reading more into it than what is there. I have reread it myself, and I'm sorry but I fail to see how I have 'slandered'. I have neither said that they are not able bodied midwives nor have I suggested others not use them. What I have said is that for ME trust has been eroded. Like many women on mothering I have done A LOT of research on the midwives in my...
I have a serious thing about not letting my green dry out and this is what I do. As soon as I get my order of happy, I put it in a dark, glass jar. I'm often amazed at herbalist friends of mine who keep all their herbs in happy dark glass jars then store their most expensive herb, mj in a plastic bag. The plastic will absorb all your happy oils and we don't want that! The best kind of jars to use are old supplement jars Nature's Herbs sells their's in amber jars, so I just...

I haven't used any of these midwives personnally, but here's some to get you started: Deborah in Newcastle: http://www.purebirth.com/ These ones are supposed to be fantastic: http://www.birthstream.com/ Another CNM Tuesday in sacramento area: http://www.newearthmidwife.com/ a friend of mine is using Tuesday right now and really likes her.

I believe that is Deborah Bartel. She was really great when we interviewed her. We just really connected with the ladies in Citrus Heights WAY more. viola...
For Yule we try to do something on the gamier side of life. This year it'll be a Goose for Yule. We've done duck, cornish game hens, and vension. But we almost always have a goose, so I'd say that's our 'tradition'.
