Hello WWW <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">. My name's Donna and I happened to hear about you guys through random mention by another lady on another forum I visit regularly. I'm not sure what her screen name is here, but she recently gave birth to twin girls (kannon99, you out there?) and is a doula herself. I'm not sure whether I should divulge all the dirty details here (is this the right place?) but I'll try to keep it a short intro.<br><br>
I have four kids. B. is 19, D. is 16, Milan is eight and Danica is nine months. The first two were born in Serbia, both hellish experiences unfortunately due to lack of compassion and knowledge by the medical staff. My first daughter was a natural breech delivery and we almost lost her. When I tell doctors my birth story, they look at me in amazement and wonder how we both managed to survive through such complicated circumstances. Milan and Danica were born here in Ontario, also both natural/un-medicated hospital births. Milan was 9 lbs. even, Danica 10 lbs. 1 oz, one week "overdue".<br><br>
I'm an teacher at a middle school full-time, currently on my extended maternity leave until September of '08 due to severe varicose veins. Am breastfeeding Danica (have BF'ed all the children, respectively 16, 19 and 24 months), looking to maintain that even after I return to work. I love to cook and experiment (I have an herb garden I've very proud of <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">). We're green, organic, AP, co-sleeping, museum-going enthusiasts and I hope to get to know you all.<br><br>
Cheers!
