A coworker's daughter is pregnant and even though I don't know her very well, I sent her a list of links that I've found useful. From clothing stores to books to the Bradley web site to noharm.org. Had to get a few of those in there. =) Hopefully, she'll read 'em and they'll sink in. Since we're not really friends or anything, it's not like I can just talk to her about it.

Although... another coworker and I were talking and she's TTC and I mentioned how I feel that circ is inhumane, barbaric, and unethical and she said she had never really thought about it, but what I said made sense. Her hubby's Italian, but I get the feeling the family's been in the States for a while. I think she'd spare her son too. =)

I just had to share... the new mom-to-be emailed me back and said this:

I'm definitely going to check out these sites and see what I can use. Thank you for your compassion and pity on a new mother. I'll be sure to pass on this e-mail to anyone I know that is pregnant.
It's being spread! =) She's a smart, feisty woman too. If she believes in something, I know she's even more adamant than I can be. =) It'd be so awesome if she gets fired up about breastfeeding, AP style, and keeping boys as they should be! =)
