There is a ped in g-boro named Dr. Bodey... he's no vax, ap friendly. I will try to find out his contact info or maybe someone will show up here.
Hai, I think she's actually asking for me. Due to a paperwork snafu we lost our son's spot at the year-round school and the school he is assigned to is unacceptable to us. We're looking at homeschooling for 6th grade and then reapplying him for the lottery next year. My main concerns were being unsure if we could apply for a lottery spot from a homeschool and also what would become of his standing the academically gifted program. He's been in AIG for 3 years and...

Mine is like this one except it has a handle and a double speaker: http://www.1cascade.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=2574 Sigh. Yes. Everything is so expensive! Maybe if someone ever pays me I will use that to buy a new doppler, lol.
OMG, yes, Deb! Deb is awesome. I usually measure midwives on whether or not I would hire them and I would 100% hire Deb.
Hey MidwifeErika, I called you earlier today and left you a rambling message you probably couldn't understand. I do want to buy a new one but if you could see how much I have spent this month on midwifery gibber you'd understand my hesitancy. I really love my current doppler and I got a HUGE deal on it (think $600 doppler I got for about $150) but I guess I will break down and start over-researching which waterproof one to buy.
I can give you a name but I am not sure if my contact info for her is correct. I will PM you... and also try to get updated contact info for her. -Amy

He's our dr and he and I have chatted about birth and he related some anecdotes to me about nurses having to catch because he's...
Are they serged or turned and topstitched? I can do it for you if they are T&T but I can't live through ripping out serging.

I know I'm not crazy... there used to exist probe covers way back...
