Hi everyone,
I'm a new mom from central Maine, and I've just discovered mdc. In June I gave birth to Elinora at home in the birthing tub. It was an amazing, powerful (and painful!) experience and since then I have had the awesome opportunity to be a sahm. My husband and I love natural living and alternative energy forms- we hope to soon be able to build our own energy efficient house attached to the grid but self-sustaining. This forum looks like a great place to meet like-minded people and get some great ideas!

Welcome! I saw the word Maine and had to reply I grew up in Harpswell but we live in CT now. Maine is a great place for natural living and raising nature loving children.

Hi! I'm on the Blue Hill peninsula--not too far from you. Who was your midwife? I had a homebirth 16 months ago and probably know some of the same midwives as you.
