Natural birth education in a non-crunchy area

I'm planning to train with Birth Boot Camp as an instructor and am REALLY excited about it. My biggest concern, and a possible hurdle, is that this area's OBs are really unsupportive of natural...

Gymboree also has some pants that look like a chino or cargo pant, but are lined with jersey. DD had some (from the boys' section) when she was younger and wore them out. She called them her "soft...

I'll join! We're back to BS1 at the moment, as DH's car needs some repairs ... but I'm hoping to boost the BEF back up really quickly after a yard sale next month.

I forgot - we had a phase where she wouldn't use more than two squares of TP after accidentally flooding the school bathroom in preschool.  That was yucky.

Eek. It's actually the baby chest run though, the ingredients listed are eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, and rosemary oil. No turpentine and no camphor.
