I'm not a VBAC mama, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but this caught my eye.  I had my first at a birthing center many years ago with CNMs, and then my second with CNMs at home, and some of...

Well, it does seem like it could be a workable solution, and I would seriously consider it.  The setup, the country living, the opportunities, the money savings, the chance to develop a close...

It's not particularly "natural," but my MW with #2 recommended that I take Vitron-C tablets for anemia.  It's not super expensive, has vitamin C added to it, and is generally available OTC, though...

It's probably just hormones, but even if you do get sick, one of my midwives a while ago did tell me that I didn't need to worry about treating a fever (normally I wouldn't treat a fever, but I was...

If the small car is the main reason for not taking on another daycare child or two, I'd suggest looking for children who need care before or after school.  You might even find parents who need...

35/36 is probably below my personal cutoff for having a UC, maybe even a homebirth. I'm pretty sure at 35/36w, I'd want my MW there, just in case, especially since I'm not all that close to a...

We just waited until DS2's cord was limp and white, and then we tied it with dental floss and DH cut it with scissors (wiping them with rubbing alcohol first). No big deal, though I like the idea of...

*Not* an expert, but I've gone over three times and have had large babies too. My third baby was a UC, and when my water broke, it had some flecks of green in it. Had it been thick or dark (or if it...

It may at least somewhat depend on how often you eat a particular food. We eat a lot of meat and drink a lot of milk, so those are always organic. I'd probably cut them out of our diet before I...

I used to drive 40 miles each way for raw milk, and I didn't really have any other reason to be out that way, just the milk. I would go once or twice a month and freeze it, but it was worth it.
