Hi all.  I'm Cindy and I'm due with #4 April 21.  Been a part of MDC since I was pregnant with #1 in 2005!
Have you looked at the providers from New Jersey BirthNetwork?  http://www.njbirthnetwork.org/Provider_Directory.html   They've all signed the Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative. http://www.motherfriendly.org/MFCI     There are also some really phenomenal questions here to ask prospective doctors to see if they are on board with your wishes.  http://www.motherfriendly.org/Resources/Documents/Having_a_Baby-English.pdf   And finally, just know that having a...
Two boys, ages 6 and 5. Not a single problem.
There are some super awesome LLL groups out there with some very cool AP moms.  Check out This link for their meetings and contact info. There's even a link to their yahoo group, which is really active. http://www.lllusa.org/NYE/Queens/queens.HTM

I'm sorry if anything I posted sounded otherwise. It was my ill-put wording.
Happy New Year, Ladies!
