Shalom and Hello ladies!
Aleph: we need to increase our numbers! There aren't enough of us!
Bet: I NEEEEEEED help! I am looking for resources in the greater Tel Aviv area...the closer to Rechovot the better...I need a REMARKABLE midwife and/or doula or even an OBGYN and a Peditrician.
But here's the catch...
They must be PRO breastfeeding (ie, NO feeding on schedules, NO taking away baby from you at hospital/birthing place, KNOWLEDGABLE and SUPPORTIVE about tandem nursing, etc...)
ANTI vaccination (oh man, did I open up a whole can of worms here or what?!)...I'd even be open to someone who is not WHOLELY anti vac, but someone who is open minded to picking and choosing vaccinations and giving them one at a time over the age of two.
KNOWLEDGABLE (or at least supportive) about holistic/homeopathic medicine.
I understand that this is a TALL order for Israel, but I am threatening to go back to the states to give birth if I can't find someone to foot the bill. LOL! No, seriously, I'm getting very very nervous about what I'm reading and hearing about hospital births here in Israel.
After having one B"H beautiful and healthy baby, I pretty much know what I want and what I'm looking for.
Also, any waterbirth/hypnobirthing ladies present? That is something I'm very interested in doing.
And what do you think the interest would be for a CD distributer (in English) here in Israel (on the internet)? What about employing some SAHM's to sew cloth diapers and pads and wipes and maybe even baby carriers? Pay would be on comission at first (per item sold) but hopefully this could turn into something really great. Ideally it would be a multi language website so EVERYONE could get in on it. Just kicking it around. What do you ladies think?
Feel free to send me a private message here online....
Chag Sameach ladies!
