Post your total

I got 140, which seems odd because I did not have the highest rating in all the categories. In addition, I am really surprised by the outcome because I do not think I am super crunchy. I feel just crunchy.

I scored 90, but if I took again in a month or two when I have implemented the herbal remedies I am looking into and actually start using whole/natural/organic foods and in a year or two when I attempt my first home birth, it will go higher

Me too.
I have only one child and will only ever have one so some questions didn't apply. I also had birth issues that resulted in a hospital birth and a low milk supply. Also, no homeschooling since we are a Waldorf family.

I am very happy where I am!
