Came across mothering.com through a link on a recent blog post by Mayim Bialik. As Natural Mama and Holistic Nutritionist that specializes in fertility and pregnancy, this website is a great find! I can't wait to read more and I would love to contribute in any way I can!

How I got here was unintended. I was googling "Granola" to see how it differed the muesli. I saw the words "Granola Taliban" and thought, WOW who the flip are they?

I knew this was just the right forum to join, wanted a mothering site to belong to anyway. So here I am.

Hi - My name is Tara, screen name Positive T and I have been meaning to write a positive article on microcephaly ever since my daughter was diagnosed with it. When I went home and read all the bad things about it and cried my eye out, i knew i had to do something to help other moms out there. Hopefully you all enjoy my story i posted and I am hoping it helped at least one person. I have a beautiful 16 month old daughter and am expecting my 2nd baby on Nov 3. So I am looking for some mom bonding, nice to meet you all!

I started reading mothering when it was black and white issue. My oldest is 32 and my youngest 20. Grandkids now and I still turn to mothering. It made a huge difference in my life.

I borrowed copies of Mothering from my Bradley instructor 's lending library about 2 1/2 years ago & knew it was out of print so didn't really think of it again until a web search turned up this site. I am sure glad it did because I have relied on it more times than I can count already. Thanks for being here!

I am a 29 year old wife, mother & child of God. My stepson is 13, & 2 little guys are 24 mo & 6 mo. We try to live naturally as possible but have a long way to go. We hope to be blessed with lots of babies to love on in our life.

Hello,

I found Mothering while searching the web. I searched vaccination exemptions your site came up, I enjoyed looking it over and decided to join. I like to educate myself with every piece of information I can find about many subjects.

Thank you,

Jeanine

I used to get the magazine years ago when I was a Mom - started reading it before giving birth and for many years afterwards. That was a long time ago - my son was born in 1981. I am a journalist going for a specific reason that I will post.

Hello, my name is Melissa and I was just browsing the internet to read up on at home IUD removal. There was a thread here somewhere and it was pretty informative and helped me in my decision to just do it. My husband helped me and we were successful! Anyway, that is how I came across this site. I decided to join because who knows, maybe we will get pregnant soon! :) we aren't going to "try" but whatever happens, happens :). I have a 15 year old son from a previous relationship and my husband has two daughters, 16 and 5, from previous relationships. All three of our children live with us but we have no kids with each other.

I wanted to add (just in case anyone is curious) that I decided to remove my IUD because I am having a lot of side effects. Weight gain, acne, heavy bleeding that rarely subsides. I gave it 5 months and just couldn't do it anymore.
