I'm new to the mothering fourm, but have been on the site for about 6 years now. I love the magazine and the great resource that it has been to me in my own personal life as well as professionally.
I have 3 lovely babies - 6yrs, 5yrs, and 2 months and am thoroughly enjoying being a mom to a new baby again! I had some significant bf problems starting out with my littlest one - and couldn't believe how painful bf was as this was not my experience in the past, and know enough that it was not normal and was counting each feeding and not looking forward to the next, but after having a stage "3-4" tounge tie, am thrilled to have managed through that tough time and continue to be breastfeeding exclusively and pain free! In my professional life I am a doula (certified birth and postpartum) and childbirth educator (working on certification).
I'm looking forward to being a part of this community and hope I will continue to have the time to check in on a semi-regular basis!
