Hi all!

I live near Gore Mt. Ski Center, in the town of Johnsburg, NY (Adirondacks)

My kids are almost 30, 27, and almost 25.

I can't remember how I found mothering.com, to be honest. I remember Mothering mag back in the '80's when I was having babies at home.

I love meeting new folks, and my work with a home birth midwife as her apprentice, as well as my work as a doula and as a parenting support worker (in my "day job"), really give me lots of opportunities to meet new people, and yes- I'd LOVE to meet more mothering mommas.

Well, I can't really think of any "holistic" places around here in the immediate area, but I enjoy our local parent-child play group where I volunteer (I help run it) and I also enjoy Cafe Sarah in North Creek (they have the best Egyptian Chamomile tea on their menue and I love tea!).

I have an important dental appointment on Monday or I would definitely be at that rally. I did write to my legislator however and heard back from her that she would vote for the bill eliminating required practice agreements for midwives if it came to a vote. I feel encouraged.

How far are you willing to travel? You might want to look into family practice locally as well they seem more lenient.

I would be willing to travel a good bit, I guess, if I could find someone I really trust. This whole situation has been coming to a head for awhile, and this two month appointment with my little DD just capped it off. Thanks.
