To introduce myself: I've been part of MDC since my oldest was a baby (12yo ds). Now I have five children, 12, 9, 7, 5 and 11 months. Started reading Midwifery Today and every midwifery-related text I could get my hands on when he was little. Worked at WIC as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor from 2002-2005. I became a doula in early 2010, attended my first Midwifery Today conference and enrolled in the National Midwifery Institute in 2011 and moved to Oregon to apprentice with a midwife in October 2011.
I would like to serve as the mod in a way that meets the needs of this forum. Feel free to let me know what you think of how the forum is going and make suggestions.
