I noticed some new boards. Does the lack (at least as far as I could see) of a new c/b indicate that a final decision has been made, or is it still pending?
From what Cynthia said at the end of one thread she closed, she was going to tell Peggy that she didn't think it would be a good idea to have a c-birth forum.
IMO- that just gives us all (posting here) added responsibility to remain active here and answer c-birth questions as they come up, even if we have already been over a particular subject many times. I am thinking that when I get some free time, I am going to start maintaining a word document with info from our support threads, for example when we talk about spinal vs. epidural, that would all get copied into one document, and then when someone asks, I could forward them the doc. or re-post it all here. I want women who find themselves having a c-birth for whatever reason, to have support that they cannot get from mainstream type sources, I want them to have great thing like Kim's (OTF) birth plan.
So- I guess it's up to us, and we can do it
Oh and sparklemum- I think it's good that you didn't rush into doing lots of lifting esp., I think walking early is great
, but lifting can certainly be overdone- I was always told "don't lift anything heavier than the baby for at least 2 weeks".
