I'm in Binghamton.

My kids are 4, nearly 3, and 2 weeks old
I found MDC because a friend of mine was on here and I was looking for information - she kept sending me here. I avoided it for a while because it was so big (and overwhelming), but ended up getting sucked in

I actually love meeting other MDC mamas - it's funny because we have a local "crunchy" group, and turns out a bunch of them were already MDCers! Very exciting

I love the Whole in the Wall restaurant...

My mom lives near watertown (Henderson Harbor), and my dad works at ft. drum (in ACS) but lives in Canton... trying to think what's crunchy/holistic up there. My mom would know... I know in Belleville there's a great Mennonite store that has raw milk cheese and bulk stuff... hmmmm

What town are you in? Spencerport (small town about 10 minutes west of Rochester)
How old are your kids? 1.5 and 2.5 :yawning
How did you find MDC? through google while doing reasearch for vaxxes (Clearly I decided not to )
Are you interested in meeting other MDC moms? absolutly, especially ones who send their kids to public school on a religious exemption from vaxxes. Im nervous. I was told by an administrator at Spencerport that no one has EVER attended Spencerport (The entire district) on a religious exemption. Not sure how ture that is, because it sounds like bumpkus to me.
What's your favorite holistic place in your area? (restaraunt, other business, etc). Wegman Natural Foods section! And Lori's natural foods, but thats in Henrietta, not far from where I work.

Hi all!

I live near Gore Mt. Ski Center, in the town of Johnsburg, NY (Adirondacks)

My kids are almost 30, 27, and almost 25.

I can't remember how I found mothering.com, to be honest. I remember Mothering mag back in the '80's when I was having babies at home.

I love meeting new folks, and my work with a home birth midwife as her apprentice, as well as my work as a doula and as a parenting support worker (in my "day job"), really give me lots of opportunities to meet new people, and yes- I'd LOVE to meet more mothering mommas.

Well, I can't really think of any "holistic" places around here in the immediate area, but I enjoy our local parent-child play group where I volunteer (I help run it) and I also enjoy Cafe Sarah in North Creek (they have the best Egyptian Chamomile tea on their menue and I love tea!).

I have an important dental appointment on Monday or I would definitely be at that rally. I did write to my legislator however and heard back from her that she would vote for the bill eliminating required practice agreements for midwives if it came to a vote. I feel encouraged.

How far are you willing to travel? You might want to look into family practice locally as well they seem more lenient.

I would be willing to travel a good bit, I guess, if I could find someone I really trust. This whole situation has been coming to a head for awhile, and this two month appointment with my little DD just capped it off. Thanks.
