My dh is trying to get a company transfer to the Watertown area. Looks pretty isolated but beautiful country living. Any mamas out there?

I'm about 90ish minutes south and a little west of there - and its about the same distance to Sioux Falls (where there's a small but supportive group of "crunchies"). It is pretty isolated, but Watertown is a very pretty area IMO.

Homebirth laws suck here... but maybe you can help us change that =) Welcome!

Thanks for the response. Looks like it may be lonely out there.

The downside: this isn't the crunchiest state in the nation.

BUT! When you do find like-minded mamas, they realize how important it is for us to stick together =)

Welcome (slightly in advance) to SD. I live down in Sioux Falls. Good luck with the move!

Hi! I just saw this thread. We moved to Watertown about 3yrs. ago... it was hard for us to adjust to at first comming from a bigger city but we do like it here now (for the most part). Anyway, I'm here if you're still around!

Sarah : , mama to Lucas (8) , Ryan (5) : , Andrew (1yr) , and someone new : due early Dec.

Hi mama's in SD

I am so excited to see that you exist! I am moving to Brookings in July, my hubby got a position at SDSU. We had a homebirth last june, in Alexandria VA. I hear the laws suck for hb, but hopefully we can join together and help other mama's have the birth they want.
anyway we bf,carry,attach,and cloth and try to be earth friendly.
Hope to meet up with some of you.

Watertown mamas, if you are interested in helping with our legislative efforts for midwifery, please PM me! We are planning informative conferences the last week in June throughout the state (including Watertown) to educate our supporters and our legislators!

Hi! I'm seeing this thread a little late--but I'm in Castlewood--about 15 miles S. of Watertown!!

I agree, it's very uncrunchy around here--so will be great to have another mama in town!!!
