Who attends this? Is this open to aspiring midwives? What kind of sessions are to be offered? What are the costs? Anyone here know, or should I just e-mail someone from the trustbirth site and ask?

It is open to everyone interested. We are still working out the details on the session topics and the costs. I am the conference coordinator, so feel free to email me at [email protected] .

I'd love to go. Problem is that I've been told several times that the "spaces" will probably sell out by july, or October at the latest, and I certainly won't know until tax time whether I can afford it or not. We just have too many expenses right now for me to even be able to "save up" for a flight across the country and then a hotel stay AND conference registration...I'm crossing my fingers that my husband's company sells sooner rather than later, and that his retention bonus will be paid out later this summer. IF that happens, I'll be able to come. If not...tax time, it all hinges on tax time. And apparently that may be too late.

I hope you do another one soon after that, Lennon, and maybe this time in Chicago, or somewhere kind of central like that...so that none of us have to travel COMPLETELY across the country? :

Man, I WISH I could be there. Sounds so awesome. My situation is like Courtenay's.

(btw, this is totally off-topic but the google ad at the bottom of my page when I clicked on this is "Are you John Lennon?")

That is funny! (My parents really thought that when they named me after him that no one would remember who he was anymore when I was an adult.... )

OK, I'm not a birth professional but I'm bumping this to see if anyone is planning to go. I am but I can only afford to if I can find roomies! Anyone?

Thanks!
Lindsey

FYI I'm a two time UC mama, who is not militant and happily supports attended births. Just in case you are wondering what my background is.

I'm open to rooming with someone - though I do snore (just a warning). I am imagining a great slumber party!!

Yay! I got replies! Reha, I PM'd you. Pamamidwife, I'm cool with snoring if you don't mind my baby. She doesn't fuss much, but it's enough to bother my husband, who's a very light sleeper. Then again, if you snore it's rather unlikely you're a light sleeper.

I will say, though, that I'm trying to find 3 other women to room with to get this as cheap as can be though... so if I find other roomies who are not good with snoring I may not be able to room with you. I hope you aren't offended.... Otherwise we're good.

Love and peace and happy birth conference vibes!

I normally have a 2 year old and almost 4 year old in bed with us, so babes don't bother me at all!

I'm open to whatever. For 4 to a room, you're looking at two queen beds, right?

DH used to work in hotel, he says it's either gonna be 2 Queens or a King. Can't imagine they'd set aside rooms with a King for a conference, though. He is suggesting a call to the hotel. I may do that Sunday.

Either way, I think DD and I will bed down on the floor- no rolling off, no getting squished by someone who's maybe not tuned into her presence as I am.

I'm getting excited!

Unfortunately they do have rooms with king-size beds set aside for the conference, and it is the only thing left!!! So, I've reserved one, but I know of someone who isn't going, and I think she's going to pass on her reservation of a room with 2 queen sized beds to me.

Pamamidwife & purpletirza - wanna share with us?? (Two very nice aami students...)

It wasn't going to be feasable for me to go, but i put the wish out there, told my sweetie, and sure 'nuf, a whole bunch of my family members pitched in to send me (as a birthday gift)!
I'm so excited, and could use a roomate, if anyone is still looking.

Married to my love, mama to twin boys J&O (6), and expecting # 3 this December!

I am so excited for the conference! Carla Hartley says it will be the last one she organizes, so do everything and anything to get yourselves there. Plus I don't know how much longer Michel Odent and John Stevenson will be around...they are living treasures.

just as a curiosity are those with kiddos bringing the kiddos? i live close by to Redondo and am going, but, of couse, my hubby has his bff's 30th birthday party on saturday and my momma is moving to maine a couple weeks before so i'm trying to find childcare that day but who knows what'll happen.

i know at the LLL conference there was many older kids there that were willing to watch the youngin's for a small fee but this'll be my first birthy conference so i'm not sure if it ends up like that or not...hmmmmmm, i know this is the first Trust Birth Conference also. anybody have any insight?

You might want to email Carla and see...I know there aren't any 'official' child care accomodations, but there might be something planned to help.

I'm game! Pamamidwife?

We want to order my airline ticket asap, as prices (for us anyway) seem to be going up. But I want to make sure I have a solid rooming situation first. Don't have to have everyone settled, just one absolutely gauranteed roommate. Well, in a larger room, I guess I need two gauranteed to get similar prices. How do you propose we work out payment stuff? Dh was suggesting an escrow service to be on the safe side. How has anyone else handled this kind of thing in the past?

Eliza, Reha might be able to help you out there... Reha?
