my name is Brytnee and im a crunchy mom from through stl area.
im just wanting to find like minded moms in the same area, since im a little new to the crunchy thing.
a little about me:
i have a 4 year old son Brinkley with a previous relationship. with my now husband we had a beautiful little girl Tessie who would be 14 months right now, but at 4 1/2 months she passed away from SIDS. I am also currently expecting another little boy in August who we are naming Flynn.
i am a lactivist, i didn't bf my oldest because i just never thought about it being a young mother.
I bf my daughter exclusively until she passed away.
i plan on bfing this little boy until he decides to wean himself
I am an intactivist, i circumcised my oldest son because i was uneducated about it.
i regret making that decision for him and i now know better.
my new little boy will be intact and im so happy to say so! i believe its not the parents decision to cut off their sons foreskin and it should be left up to him when he gets older. you can't put a foreskin back on.
i am very against vaccinating!!!
both my son and my daughter were fully vaccinated. my son thankfully had no problems but my daughter did.
2 months she started becoming behind in development. she lost all muscle strength.
at 4 months she received her second dose and 5 days later she passed away. she was miserable the last 5 days and i feel like an idiot for ignoring the fact it was her vaccines.
my son is done with receiving then and this baby isn't even going to get a vit k shot in the hospital.
sorry its so long if you have any questions for me im here
I have 3 kids and we live on the IL side.

Hello! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm in Rolla, about two hours from you. There are TONS of resources for "alternative" folks in St.L. If you're planning a home birth, you might be interested in attending a Friends of Missouri Midwives meeting. St. Louis also has groups for babywearing, EC'ing and more. I'm sure you'll find your tribe quickly. :)
