Hi my name is Tracy, I'm a new member to Mothering, but used to read and enjoy the magazine many years ago when my sisters children were young, her oldest is now in college. I'm a former birth doula and used to recommend Mothering to my clients all the time. I'm excited to say that after 7 years of infertility treatments my husband and I are ecpecting our first child in August! After so many years of heartache and infertility I stopped all involvement in the birth community, I am looking forward to getting reconnected but this time as an expectant mother! I so looking forward to learning and growing (physically and in knowledge and perspective)! I have a wonderful husband named Matt, we've been together for 10 years, he is my rock! We have a 5 yr old Kerrin terrier/ schnauzer mix named Special Agent Jack Bauer (JB). I love to knit, garden, can, cook, read, do pilates, spend time with my friends and Church. I am looking to meeting lots of people on this forum and extending my love for natural living to my pregnancy and blossoming body!
