Its quite a drive from centerville (45min i'd say?) but Jungle jims is bigger and more fun than trader joes. I love trader joes and I shop there all the time but as far as looking for something fun to do, it would be more of an adventure. http://www.junglejims.com/

Check your local library for story times. I think there is a story time, not sure what ages, at Starbucks in Oakwood on Monday mornings. Last I heard they had free hot chocolate.

Hi everybody, it has been a while since I've posted, but I just found out that I *may* be pregnant, and I am having no luck searching for a homebirthing midwife. I was hoping some of you ladies from the area might be able to give me some refferals! Thanks in advance =D

Busymama07---I say wait until you are sure you are pregnant before you interview midwives.

When I was pregnant and interviewing HB midwives, I was sad to learn that there was only one willing to attend a birth for a first time birther (me). Now however, you have more options.

Busymama07--

If you don't find what you want in a midwife in the Dayton area try Cinnci, Columbus, even surrounding states. There are other midwives around who will take you if you're willing to do a little driving.

Given the legal climate right now you'd probably be hard pressed to get specific names of midwives posted online. I suggest mentioning it at a dar a luz meeting, a LLL meeting, or other meetings to try and get acutal names.

Here is something that we can focus our energies on as well.

How about natural birthing for those who have had a c/s. No place in this area will allow a c/s to waterbirth or labor, it is in this area turned into a fully medicalized experience.

I am not prego right now, but feel that since FB wont allow VBAC's I have no choice but to homebirth. No clue if any home birth midwifes will do VBAC's, so it leaves me with basically a UC.

Oh, and to the person who had a time finding a provider with CareSource ---

Trust me, I so understand and know what you mean. The few OB's who are taking new patients only are allowing a limited number per month you are due (ie like 2 or 3 Caresource patients in the month of December). I swear I called the entire list, and one of them actually refused me as a patient because I didn't want pain medication.

Right now, you are basically stuck with one of the four clinics (Berry Clinic - but good luck getting in before you are 1/2 way done with your pregnancy; Women's Center on 1st Floor Berry Building; Southview's Clinic - too many hoops to jump through -- meet with a nurse takes about 3-4 weeks to get - go over history and pregnancy testing, etc, then another 3-4 weeks before first OB apt; then Lifestages).

Hey! It's me, Bobbi, from the other group!
Yes, our options for birth are always limited by insurance, then by Drs willing, then by their regs/rules. HB is a valid and valuable choice for us. Yes. there are birth attendants who will work with VBACs.

Now...I want to address the term MIDWIFE. "A person, usually a woman, who is trained to assist women in childbirth." So...define 'trained."
In our community we seem hesitant to call a person a midwife--especially with the political climate right now. Some think a degree program is necessary...some believe experience is the key. Regardless of which way you lean I will tell you this...we do not have any practicing homebirth midwives in this area that are CPMs or CNMs (there may be one in Cincy, but not sure...). The 'birth attendants' in this area are diverse. One has been doing births for many years (15+??), one is a paramedic, one is a medical massuse, most are doulas, one specializes in herbals...

I can guarantee that if you wanted to have a VBAC at home there would be MWs, attendants, or whatever you want to call them, there for you.

How was Connor's surgery? I hope everything went well. Are you going to teach Ian ASL too? The library has some Signing Time DVDs. I'm not sure how you feel about TV, but they are only 30 minutes long and Lyela loves them!

I have been working with DS2 on some simple signs, well and so has his speech therapist.

I am trying to get him to sign potty (t with shaking hand)...but he thinks it is easier to just pat his private parts when he needs to go potty.

Ok, so what are some of the upcoming kids sales in town...I have become addicted to shopping for girl clothes, and have to pair down my spending a bit ore we will be in the poor house.

Also, are there any groups for learning scrap booking?
post #54 of 364
Just another note on the Signing Time DVDs. You'll have to request them, and there is a line. I've been waiting almost 2 months for the Great Outdoors one.

The Kid's Sale at Christ United Methodist is April 19.

Mark your calendars for the next Kids' Sale on April 19 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Tons of "nearly new" items will be available: stollers, cribs, pack-n-plays, high chairs, outdoor toys, clothing, books, games, vidoes, and more! This sale benefits local charities as well as the Children's Ministry here at Christ Church.

We are currently accepting donations of new or gently used items for babies and children.

For more information, please contact Carrie Hauser (937-293-3151) or thekidsale@christumc.org.
I'd love to hear about other ones. I got a lot of clearance shopping done for DD last year, but we didn't have any ultrasounds so I could only get gn things for DS. And there aren't much of those!

There's a new scrapbooking store in Kettering Towne Center. There may be groups there. I know that there is a group that meets in the Wilmington Stroop Library and every Monday there are breastfeeding/scrapbooking meetings at the Sunrise center. I've been considering getting into digital scrapbooking. The only time I can scrap is when DD is napping and then most of my time goes to lugging out all my stuff and then putting it away. I found a site that prints 12x12 pages for really reasonable prices. Scrapbooks Please

I have made a few digital pages through Sam's Club for about $1.86 a page (like an 8X10 size). I did these for DS1's preschool field trips this year.

There was just a kids sale posted on Craigslist for like early march in fairborn/yellow springs area.

AprilMay-

I'm SO sorry I didn't respond to you! I haven't been back to this thread in a while...I spend all my time over on the special needs forum (come on over and meet all my virtual friends!)

Connor's second surgery went well, I wrote all about it in my blog, you'll have to go down several posts to find it, it was an action-packed adventure getting to and from Cinci

Connor's surgeon wants him to wear hearing aids, but because of his ear deformity, he can't wear ones in his canals, so he has to have bone conductive hearing aids. We go back to Cinci on Mar 24th for a follow-up, repeat hearing screen (post surgery), and hopefully to be fitted for the aids!

Yes, we're teaching Ian ASL also. He knows all the animals and about a dozen words right now. He learns really quick! Connor understands the concept of signing, I see him "hand babbling" a lot (when he's independent playing he moves his hands all over and stares at them inspecting them...kind of like babbling with his hands!) He has two or three signs he knows on his own, and he responds to several others. He's coming along!
