I am a native Memphian (well, Tipton Countian) who just moved back down south after being in NYC and Scotland for the last several years. I am finding it really difficult to settle in a place that is so different from the sort of progressive, liberal, crunchier places I've been, and it can be kind of lonely at times. I have literally one friend with similar beliefs and philosophies, heh.
My husband and I have one homebirthed son and we recently decided to begin our TTC journey for number two. I was in the UK for the pregnancy and birth of my son, so attempting to navigate insurances, etc. here in the US is kind of overwhelming! I know there are at least two midwifery groups in Memphis, and I'll be contacting them as soon as we managed to get pregnant, but if anyone knows of any natural birth support in this area, I'd love recommendations!
I'm hoping to connect with other parents nearby who parent/live the same kind of way we do -- even if I can just be part of an online group, I will feel so much better knowing I'm not the only sane person in a 60 mile radius!
