HI! I am new here and from southern Indiana. I was reading through some old posts here on "Find Your Tribe" and see there may actually be some mamas on this forum that live in my area. I am so excited! I would love to talk to some like-minded mamas in REAL LIFE! Most mamas I know think I am a little weird. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one out there.

About me, well, I have six children, we homeschool, cloth diaper, babywear, breastfeed, all that good stuff. I don't homebirth cause my dh is too afraid but maybe if we are blessed with another baby I can convince him this time. I am trying to feed my family the most healthy foods I can find and do what is best for them cause I love them all to pieces!

Hope I fit in here with you all and like I said, it would be super wonderful if I could actually meet someone irl like me!!!


Stephanie

Me too...I live on the west side. I guess we are neighbors then, LOL. There are lots of other crunchy mommas here..you just have to hit that stroke of luck I guess. Maybe we can schedule a get together or something soon? (Which is relative considering I am about to birth and the weather and all..but feel free to email/pm me if you are interested)

WHAT? There are lots of crunchy mommas here?? I guess maybe I just don't get out often enough and I have not had a stroke of luck.

Thanks for saying I can email you. I will!

Welcome to MDC!

Love to see other large families here!

I live just across the river from S. IN. Lived there three years ago, still wish I were living on the other side of the river, I think the climate is much better!

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

Howdy Hoosier Mamas! I now live in S. Indiana, just across the river from the Ville. I went to grad school at IU, though, so even though I am originally from Oregon, I guess I'm kind of a Hoosier too.

Are all of y'all on the Yahoo Group AP list? It's very active, and lots of awesome families share their wisdom there.

Hi Stephanie! I so admire you for having 6 children... soon to be seven??

If you get a chance to homebirth with the next one, let me tell ya - my first was born in the hospital then the next three was born at home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE giving birth at home!!! The prenatal care from the Midwives are far better than doctors and its just all around so much better. IMHO.

Glad you've joined us. Check out Birth and Beyond for more support on homebirth.

Pleased to meet you!

MDC!

It's actually the Louisville area AP list (when you said southern Indiana, I was thinking close to us, in the New Albany area, but now I realize you are farther west!). You are welcome to join if you'd like!

Welcome to the area!
