I've heard about this site a bunch from a few women I know & after lurking for awhile I've decided I really LOVE it here!!

I LOVE that women are striving for more natural births rather than the "latest & ahem.. greatest" ways to birth.

A little about me:

25 yo SAHM/WAHM ("DH's" accounts)
Mum to a 13mth old Blake
Partner to Brett
TTC #2 Cycle 3 (opk yes no temps yet)
Cding, bfing, babywearing, non circing AP mama
Live in the country with an AWESOME newish Birth Education & Research Centre not long opened up between us & the hospital (that allows pre birth stay & pp stay for up to 6 weeks!! WITH family)
Obviously, cause of the way I spell mum I'm not from the USA
I'm from The North Coast (NSW) of Australia
Fave. "passage" atm: (taken from a blurb on Gentle Birth Choices book)

Quote:
Physicians have patients but midwives have clients. A physician "delivers the baby," which implies control, while a midwife helps the woman "birth her baby."

I just came back a couple of weeks ago myself, and I agree, this place is awesome! I am glad so many of us are finding strength here by being together. Like an ancient tradition, but online since we no longer live in tribes in physicality much anymore. I like the quote at the bottom too. Pleased to meet you!

To begin to save the world, we must first nurture the children. Read "The Continuum Concept: In Search of Happiness Lost"    saynovax.gifgoorganic.jpgintactlact.gifMe-hippie.gifreading.gifhelp.gif10.5 yo dd1- nut.gifreading.gifblahblah.gif ; 5 yo dd2- angel.gifhearts.gifbouncy.gif
