It may vary by state/practitioner, but I think you would need a midwife.
If I went to a hospital to birth again (which I wouldn't!), I wouldn't go w/o a doula.
Had my 2nd birth in a birth center...

Kind of a tangent but I read (years ago) an account here on MDC of a child who had chronic respiratory problems recovering completely after having pertussis.

The issue wasn't calcium deficiency, but mechanical, which seemed plausible as the tooth/gum connection is essentially a joint.
But I agree, JamieCathryn, some veg foods take a lot of chewing.

"Vegetarians' teeth get loose with age,"

This was told to me by a meat-eating doctor, who said she got it from a vegetarian colleague. Supposedly because meat requires much more chewing, it keeps the teeth firmly in place. Vegetarian foods...

I never cook food that I wouldn't eat. If DH wants to eat something I don't, he can get it and prepare it himself.

So, the kids eat mostly the way I do. When DD1 was about 8, she went to camp and...

I think how specific you get depends a lot on the kid. DD1 was so empathic that even as a baby she cried if she heard people yelling on tv, or scary music. She still doesn't like violent tv or...

Broncho spasm, possible asthma

So after a month of coughing, I finally took dd to MD and this was what she thinks. Stopped short of diagnosing asthma, but she gave her a scrip for montelukast and an albuterol inhaler. I haven't...

My 10 yo dd has this problem too. I think if she's eating non-dairy yogurt every day it gets better, but we can't always get that, and we don't eat dairy. I've tried a kids pro-biotic product, but it...

Thanks everyone. Finally took dd1 to MD and she thought it was spasming, ordered a pertussis test but didn't think it was highly likely, esp. since we had similar long bout of coughing last year.

It amazes me that no one thinks these long-term studies ought to be conducted BEFORE they push everyone to get the shot. But they need subjects, and apparently most people don't mind being one.

Coughing. Endless coughing.

I am going to go insane. Both dds are in at least their 3rd week of coughing. dd1, 10, coughs every 5 seconds in the AM. By afternoon it might get better. Some nights she can cough herself to sleep,...

Sounds like your kid is about the age for puberty. DD1 started getting smellier right around that age.
I wouldn't assume there is a connection between that and the vax, but here's something I...

I've been reading Phantom Tollbooth this week, and thought of you. 9 yo DD says she read it last year, but didn't know all the words, but that's kind of the point. Lots of pictures.
