Hi there,
I am a new mom to an amazing little boy named Sam. He's not quite 4 months old, and we're looking for other crunchy-type mamas in Indianapolis. I feel pretty alone in my AP parenting beliefs and choices and would love to have some likeminded friends.

We live in the Pendleton area, but north Indy isn't too far a drive for us.

Looking forward to getting to know other AP parents.

helpmeet. mama to Sam (1.18.09 ) and another baby boy (due 2.1.2011 ). planning our first .

Hello I see your info says Anderson? I'm pretty close to you then, in New Castle. I think there is an IndyAP group, though I never have been since Indy is quite a drive still for me. I've lived here for about 5 years, but don't really have many friends or know many like-minded people. Though I did meet another MDC mama who recently moved to the area (maybe she'll chime in here too).

Anyway, I have a 2 1/2 year old son and I'm due in June with another boy. Are you new to these forums? If so, welcome!

Amanda , mama to my two boys: N (10/06) and : A (7/09)

Hi Alissa! Congrats on your sweet boy. I know how you feel--I am very blessed to now know a lot of crunchy mamas via my midwives, but for a veerrrrry long time was 'alone'. I am not far from you (Noblesville) and drive through Pendleton weekly (picking up farm fresh eggs at the health food store there!).

I would be happy to get together with you sometime, maybe a playdate at the Falls park there in Pton?? I have an 11, 6 and 3 yr old and a 9 mo. old.

There's a group that meets up on the Eastside of Indianapolis. That's not too far from Pendleton. I used to work at the prison and it was only a 25 minute drive. My DD is the same age as your DS. She was born 01/05.

cachet -- sure we could do that sometime! gaia is a great health food store. i haven't ever bought eggs from them but maybe i should. also, i read your birth story on your blog. i didn't have a home birth but i did have a natural birth at a birth center in Muncie. your story brought back memories.

2happymamas -- do you know when and where the group meets? i would love to check it out sometime.

Awesome--PM me sometime and we can work it out--maybe some afternoon or weekend?

Also, wanted to let you know about this: http://home.homewebs.com/hmnindianapolisin/ The Indy chapter of the holistic moms network meets at the Fishers library.

Hi! I live in Pendleton! We live in town - can see the playground at Falls Park from our living room window. My son will be 4 in a couple of weeks so our children aren't that close in age, but that shouldn't stop us from being friends!

PM me, let's get together!

Yay! New friends! I love discovering "pockets of crunch," especially here in this little town. I have a wonderful, beautiful, couldn't-live-without-'em tribe of mamas in the Carmel/Fishers area and have attended several HMN meetings - maybe we've seen each other before!

Let's set up a park date soon! What days are good for everyone? Monday/Wednesday/Thursday are best for us. Hope to meet you all soon!

P.S. Anyone homeschooling or planning to? I've been keeping my eye out for a local-ish hs group in this area.

Hi. I live in Noblesville and have a 8 month old son. I don't post on here but read once in awhile. I would love to meet some other "crunchy" moms. I would like to get together for a playdate if interested.

Howdy! I live in Middletown, I'm never sure how long it takes to get to Anderson from here, the other day, I got to DH's workplace in under 10 minutes. The day before that, it took 20 some... I have a DS that will be 5 months on the ninth, so him and your son would be pretty close in age... I have a DD that is 3 as well. I think I missed/am missing the meetup you all are planning, but would love to come to any others... Welcome!

Hi! I'm not on MDC as much as I used to be, but I'm in Noblesville and work p/t in Pendleton... would love to get together if I just can schedule it! The park there is great. I didn't know Gaia had farm fresh eggs! I always have wanted to stop in there.

I'm still interested in meeting up with my 9 month old son. A Saturday or Sunday would work best for us. Is anyone up for meeting on the 11th or 12th of July? I live in Noblesville.

I'm not on mothering.com often but I will be sure to check back in to see if anyone is interested!

I've heard that the Castleton LLL group is pretty AP and crunchy. That might be an idea for people on the Northside.
