I'm one of the people trying to keep the nursing moms' group going.
We actually have had our regular Thursday evening meetings all summer, but I think next year we will move them outdoors.
And we recently bumped up playgroup from once a month to weekly.
Playgroup is EVERY FRIDAY 10 AM. It will be at McKennan Park (large, in the middle of SF) until weather forces us indoors. Then we will be at Oyate Community Center except for the first Friday, when we will go to the Washington Pavilion art room. We will also go to the Pavilion if there is a school event going on in the playgroup gym. (which happened a couple times last year, we really have no warning on that. This year, I would *like* to have phone numbers for most people so that if I show up and that's happening I can call people before they get there.)
We have children 0-6 in regular attendance currently. Pretty much everyone that comes regularly are/have been babywearers. Obviously currently or past breastfeeders. Mostly not or selective vaxing, some cloth diaper users, some have had homebirths, most all of us are open to the idea and have had natural births. Many of us are working with South Dakota Safe Childbirth to change the laws in our state to allow CPM-attended homebirths.
"Regular Thursday evening Meetings" These are every 3rd Thurs. at Morningside Comm. Center. We also have some weekend events--past have included occasional playgroup to include some working moms, tie-dying and screenprinting days.
As I mentioned there's a group called South Dakota Safe Childbirth Options (SDSCO) currently working to change our state's midwifery laws. You can PM me if you decide to come here and want to get involved. The Sioux Falls group has just really started to get active this year, we've done a booth at the fair in town, a couple potlucks, a showing of Business of Being Born and What Babies Want, and we're periodically meeting to talk about what to do next in our law-changing quest.
Overall not the 'crunchiest' place ever, but you CAN find us.
