New here, but not a new mom. Been browsing theses forums for years..not sure why I never joined! I have 3 kids, (10, 5, & 2) boy, girl, boy, and 2 college age step sons. My 2 older kids attend a Sudbury school. I'm a birth doula (I had an amazing first birth and wanted to get more involved after that!) and a Wellness Consultant. I've had a hospital, birthing center, and homebirth~all natural. I love birth & being pregnant Nice to meet y'all! ~Mimi
Congratulations! Sounds like you're off to a great start
