Hey, I live in NC right now, but lived just south of atlanta my entire life up until this past spring. My dh joined the army, so we've moved, but will be moving back to Atl area next fall for 2 years while he's in school. So anyway, another friend of mine online mentioned that she'd heard that a lot of the African American moms in atlanta were doing homebirths to protest the hospitals. I hadn't heard anything about a recent surge of homebirths, so i thought I'd check with you guys.<br>
Also, i noticed on the atlanta thread that most of you are in north atlanta, is anyone else on the south side? I do know of one mom (Hi Kathryn!), but she's the only other one I know of. Like the Spalding/Fayette/Henry county areas.

Hi Kelly! I remember you from a certain , um, <i>Center</i> board. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> . I was lydiapsmom on there. How are you? I haven't heard anything about boycotting the hospitals, but I certainly wouldn't blame them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm interested to know if anyone has info on this...<br>

Are you Valerie that used to live in Dunwoody? Go to the LLL of Dunwoody group?<br><br>
If so, HI! I love running into people I know IRL on these boards!<br><br>
Assuming you are her, how are R & F? My 3 (yes 3!) boys are well and good...we're TTC later this year for #4 (then we'll be done). We had #3 at home nearly 2 years ago.<br><br>
Haven't heard anything about you in a long time. Hope you are well!
