Well, hello!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all!  My name is Kate and I'm not only new to this community, but I'm about to be a new Mom.  I'm 35 years old, due in 4 weeks with my first child and I am quite possibly the most anxious person I know.  :)


My husband and I are looking forward to bringing our son into this world in the most natural way possible and raising him to be respectful, curious, considerate and independent.


We live in Hazel Park, Michigan (a suburb just North of Detroit) with our dog, Neko, and three cats (Mushpaws, Kittles and Baby Fatso).


These next four weeks are going to be nuts, because we are remarkably unprepared (lots to do still!), so I won't be posting much, but I hope to use this board as a resource much more once he gets here.


I will definitely be looking for advice on pediatricians that won't care about not vaccinating, breastfeeding, and attachment parenting, and I look forward to getting to know you.


Thanks for reading.

Welcome.gif Kate!  Welcome to MDC.  Congratulations on your soon-to-be-born baby!  In this forum you can also find your "Tribal Area" and connect with families in your state.

Thanks!  How do I actually "join" my tribe though?  I've been perusing the forums and see the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio one and read through some stuff, but is there a way that you actually "join"?

Hi Kate and congratulations to you! smile.gif I’m new too and I remember what that was like and miss those times.   My youngest is 2 and wow it seems like just yesterday when she was born.  Time flies so enjoy it while it lasts.
