I was directed here by the NKY coalition of home birthing liaison.
I consider myself a somewhat "crunchy" momma. We practice natural parenting. I live in NKY and most of the time feel like an outsider here. I have one other semi-crunchy friend and that's about it. It's very mainstream here so I am hoping to locate other like minded mommas to form friendships and a playgroup. I have searched high and low for a natural parenting playgroup/group of mommas near me and they are either way to far north(dayton area) or way to far south(lexington). I can find nothing in NKY.
So I decided to try to start one myself. :)
Any mommas in the area that would be interested? I hope to make some new like minded friends in my area. I know I can't be the only one.

I know how you feel. Not yet a mother but am trying to live a natural life style and it is hard in this area. No friends have the same views as me. We are planning to have a baby and my mom thinks I am crazy when I talk about cloth diapers. Hard to get friends to understand how much better it is to have a healthy natural "crunchy" life style.

Just moved here from NYC. Living in st. Matthews are. Baby is due June 15! New to natural parenting but love the idea. What are the biggest things with natural parenting? Also have you found any support groups? I'm in the process of trying to gather up a support team since my family and my husbands family live in Chicago. We move a lot for his job...
