Hi all,

I'm also not yet expecting, although we're expecting to be expecting sometime this year! I'm here to learn all I can so I'm prepared to actually do the things I want to do: a natural pregnancy, homebirth, breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, and feeding baby and DBF whole, traditionally-prepared foods. Whew! I'm so glad I've found this forum and I know I'm going to learn tons.

-HerbanGirl

P.S. How do I add more than one image to my signature?

We're officially TTC!!!

Welcome to MDC.

I admire you (and other mamas to be) for being here pre baby, learning all about the way that you and your DP want to birth and raise your future dc I can say first hand that having the right knowledge is truly empowering. I was so much more informed with my 2nd dc and I couldn't have asked for a better birth. Goodluck TTC!
