I am so glad that I found this community! I am a pregnancy/pediatric chiro in Lisle and besides my pregnant patient's and colleagues, I haven't had the pleasure of meeting many other like minded women. I am so relieved that there are so many of you out there! My hubby and I are currently ttc#1 and we have def met a lot of opposition from friends and family members about our desires to have a homebirth/waterbirth, breastfeed, nonvax, clothdiaper, etc. The constant negativity from your loved ones can sometimes be overwhelming, so I can't say how much I am thankful for this forum. Thanks everyone for the great welcoming! I look forward to getting more involved within this community.

hey! that's a stone's throw away!! we looked out in that area last summer, dh was looking to purchase a practice in downers grove~ alas, we stayed in the oak lawn area instead...

he's a chiro, too. he specializes in sports medicine, though. i agree about the difficulties finding mamas with the same/similar viewpoints on pregnancy, waterbirths and homebirths. i'm nuts for wanting that, too, in my current circles. still ttc'ing after an early loss 2 1/2 years ago. *sigh* dh needs to break out the accu needles again...

welcome to mdc. hope you find lots of friends here, too!!
