I am so glad I stumbled upon this thread from so long ago and that their are new women posting. I currently live in Wichita but we will be moving to Great Bend sometime in the next couple of months. I am due with my 2nd in a couple of weeks and then we will list our house and make the change 2 hours west. I happen to be a midwife, but will not be practicing for a couple of years so I can focus on just being a mom for a bit.  I can tell you that the discussion of...
