  Looking for solid information on Breastfeeding in Mandarin. Also any Mom forums or support groups in Mandarin. I have a new mom who is getting conflicting info. She is distrustful of western culture, but at the same time wants to breastfeed.

Has anyone taken Elizabeth Davis' Midwifery Intensive distance course?   What was the format? Did you have to buy books etc? How beneficial and applicable was the course?
I have 3 boys ages 3-8. My oldest was fully vaccinated when he was 5 in order to attend public school in NY. (from the vax he got hives & a fever and shortly after, pneumonia) He also went to school here in AZ for a short time but we did not maintain immunizations. My other son attended preschool and all though my kids are now homeschooled, all of their friends are public school kids.    Im studying to be a midwife and am hoping to work with the inner city...

Application to NMI is $30."   $12,000 for H&H course work (that's only around $1,200), admin fees and a preceptor? The tuition doesn't include any books? And what materials and equipment do I need to purchase? What else do you get? $12k is a lot for a study guide and...

We live in a micro-sized house in town right now, but are turning our backyard into a farm, complete with veggies, fruits and chickens.
