Hi there, I'm a first time mom and heard about this site from my sister (mother of 2). She suggested I might like it/find it more relevant than babycenter.com. And from the little I've been browsing, I'm pretty sure she's correct.

I'm 32 and live in Sonoma County with my husband (he'll be 32 at the end of Nov) We are both from NH originally and have lived in MA, CO, CA, UT, and TN collectively. We are what I like to call "reasonable vegans" rather than the militant type. Food is a personal journey that everyone is on, and I believe that not everyone should be vegan, but that everyone should make responsible, thoughtful food choices. We try and teach by example. But if you ask me questions, I do tend to get up on my soap box. Whole food, plant based. :-) We try and make environmentally and socially responsible choices about the things we purchase, and companies we choose to buy from. We believe that you "vote" with your dollars. Spiritually, we used to attend UU services when we were in SLC, UT (2007-2009) and LOVED our minister and community there, but haven't really found a community of UU's here that we feel comfortable/at home with. We are very environmentally conscious and LOVE the outdoors. We sea kayak, climb, hike, camp, bike, etc.

We moved to the west coast a little over a year ago for my husband's job and have had some difficulty finding "our people". Though we are loving the area, all of our family is back east, so it's been hard to be expecting our first baby so far from family.

We plan to have a natural child birth with as few interventions as possible, to cloth diaper, try out co-sleeping, and breastfeed. I'm interested in attachment parenting, but we'll see what works for our kiddo.

Also, I'm an actor. I've done many films (mostly small independent shorts, but a few feature length films too) and loads of theatre. I haven't been doing too much since becoming pregnant, but plan to get back to it as soon as I feel ready.

Hoping to meet some like-minded people. :-)
