Hi there! I'm new to Mothering and just wondering if anyone is living in Northern Lower Michigan! I'm from Traverse City, and am currently living in Kalkaska (about 20 miles away).  I'm really struggling to find any moms around here that I can connect with! I do plan on checking out the LLL meetings in Traverse once school starts back up (I have 2 girls in school, and an 11 month old), but as an at-home mom, am feeling LONELY!!  Are any of you living up here??

Hi MegaMomma77!  Welcome to MDC.  I'm not in your area, but thought I'd bump this to see if you could get some more views!  Anybody out there in her area or know groups in her area?

I'm sure there are others. Michigan is one of the states that has lots of Mothering mamas! We just need to get them to come over and post a hello so you can connect.

You need to connect with Kathi Mulder. She is a midwife in TC and will know all the people you can connect with. You can find her contact info on the Michigan Midwives Association web site. She is very sweet and I'm sure she'll be able to help.

I've heard of her. I saw Peg Dunn, but I know people who birthed with her. Thanks.

I am in Houghton Lake and make weekly trips to Gaylord for the kids to horse back ride.  We are less than an hour away.  I have heard wonderful things about Kathi Mulder and if dh was on board for home birth that is who I would choose.  I do have a facebook page called Crunchy Mommas of Central Michigan and we try to meet or playdates.  Ask to join and I'l add you!!  Glad you posted!

Hi! I just moved back to my home town - Central Lake. It's about 45 min from Traverse. Have you had any luck finding a moms group?

We haven't found a moms group yet, but there are a couple of us that get together for regular playdates in Gaylord.  You're more than welcome to come sometime.  Or let me know if you want to plan something else and we'd probably be up for a little more exploration of the area, too.  :)
