I'm planning to go! I've got a group of three ladies traveling down from Seattle/Tacoma for the weekend. Can't wait! Hope you can make it!

Oh cool. If I can manage to pull it off, maybe I will get ahold of you and we could meet up just for kicks on the day I come up!

I so had been planning on it. Our very own Pam is even speaking on two of the days! But, y'know, I may be busy around then... (Although I was joking that if the kid still hasn't made an extrauterine appearance by then, I may just go down there when Pam's presenting - I mean, I wouldn't want my midwife 3 hours away when I'm 40+ weeks pregnant, right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

I have just decided in the last week to go. I'm excited! Wow, didn't know that Pam was presenting! Now I'm even more geeked!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Heck, Arwyn, I'd say that your midwife being three hours away otherwise would be a perfect reason to go! Who'd want to go into labor so far from their midwife? And, I suppose, if you DID happen to go into labor while Pam was actually presenting...you'd have a LOT of great alternatives to help out!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I have been so out of the loop, that I didnt even know it was happening til this week!<br>
wow, never noticed how many of you girls actually live in the area. It would be neat to meet other MDC mamas. Now i really need to find a way to pay for this, wish i could do the whole weekend. Now i have to go look and try to figure out how to pick just one day. SOOOOO Hard!

I'm so excited to meet my midwifery mentor/idol, Sara Wickham! Michel Odent will be amazing, too. I have two clients due during that time (hey, Arwyn), but I feel like both will either have their babies before or after the conference. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Arwyn, I think I'm closer to 2 hours away in Eugene, maybe 2 hours 20 minutes, from you! Just come down if you haven't had your babe!

I'll be there in all likelihood! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I was just looking at the schedule today to figure out which days I want to go, etc. I'm <b>SO</b> excited to meet Michel Odent and Sara Wickham. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:

I have no idea. To tell you the truth, I have a rough outline of what I *should* be talking about but it's not really clear in my mind how it will work out. I'm hoping to just facilitate a dialogue of attendants on unhindered birth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

The only factor holding me back is that my youngest hasn't been away from me for longer than 4-5 hours at a stretch yet. If I can plan it so my partner and baby can come stay at the hotel and I can nurse her during lunch breaks or something then I will probably end up going.

That could make it hard. I know I was never able to leave my babies at that age either.<br>
I am to the point that my youngest is 3 now and I only live an hour away. It is only the money that is holding me back. SOOOO frustrating!!

I am hoping to go too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
It's going to depend on finances, but we are going to really try to make it work.

WOW! I just checked it out. I'd LOVE to go, but it's a bit too pricey for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> If I should make it there I'll look for you all. If not (or either way) let me know if someone needs a living room floor to crash on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I wish I was going, but I don't think that will be a reality between school and lack of money. I hope you all enjoy it for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
