cloth diapering workshop...really!

Sorry about the title saying Cloth Diapering Workshop in my last post! We will be having a cloth diapering workshop, as well.

Barefoot Herbs + Barefoot Kids is having a cloth diapering workshop on Saturday, June 2nd from 4:00-6:00. Julie Finn, expierenced cloth diapering mama, will be presenting and answering questions. The workshop will focus on the different kinds of cloth diapers & the benefits to you, your baby & the planet. Once again, lap babies are welcome, but we are asking for you to find childcare for your babies & toddlers on the move - because of limited space and breakable items. This will be a great class for families new to cloth diapers, or new families expecting their first child. Cost for this workshop, is yet to be determined, but will not be over $10. I will repost, when I know more.

Please call and sign up if you plan to attend - 812-339-5090.

CHOICES of La Porte County

CHOICES of La Porte County meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the public library. We are watching the video "Born in the USA" (and discussing afterward) next month (July 10th) from 6 to 7:30. The room is big and carperted and clean so feel free to bring kiddos, even crawlers, especially babies!

The video explores maternity care in the US and shows the heathcare practices and births from three of our most common modes: in hospital with an OB, at a birthcenter with an CNM, and a homebirth with a midwife.

Screening of the Business of Being Born Oct. 6 7:00 Indy

X posted see main thread.

The Business of Being Born, Oct 6, 7 pm
Directed By: Abby Epstein
Interests: Social Issues, Politics, Documentary, Women, New York, *NYcomp*, Actors Behind the Camera, Female Directors

Program Notes
In this candid and eye-opening documentary, director Epstein and producer Ricki Lake explore and question the way American women have babies. Shocking facts (to men and women alike) regarding the historical and current practices of the child birthing industry interweave with stories of couples who decide to give birth on their own terms.
Click on this link and then click on excerpts to see parts of the movie.

A message from Jennifer Williams:

We are being allowed to show The Business of Being Born in a special pre-screening event. It will be shown after the Legislative Workshop, Oct 6, at 7 pm, at the University of Indianapolis, $5 per person, children free, with proceeds to go to the Indiana Midwifery Taskforce.

Abby Epstein corresponded with me during my prosecution and her pregnancy. We were hoping to be a part of this film, but she went into labor early, around the time they were planning to come to Indiana. Abby was a wonderfully supportive, and it was amazing to correspond with her and talk to her on the phone, and to be involved, if only vicariously, in their production.

I need support in Michigan City, Indiana

Help if you can please; I am the single mother of a biracial child in Michigan City, Indiana. My child has been diagnosed with ADHD and sensorial integration issues. Although I am a graduate student in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, we are poor, and unable to access internet frequently or afford certain resources. however, if I am properly linked and get the job I am crossing my fingers for (find out later this week), we can possibly afford a special school or otherwise. My child is in the worst school in the district, and I am told this is the worst district. We definitely don't belong here. Anyway, please help if you have any ideas for sensorial integration or ADHD homeschool groups or otherwise. I can receive a voicemail but am afraid to place the number on here. Is anyone on here right now with ideas?
thank you:
