Who attends this? Is this open to aspiring midwives? What kind of sessions are to be offered? What are the costs? Anyone here know, or should I just e-mail someone from the trustbirth site and ask?

I'd love to go. Problem is that I've been told several times that the "spaces" will probably sell out by july, or October at the latest, and I certainly won't know until tax time whether I can afford it or not. We just have too many expenses right now for me to even be able to "save up" for a flight across the country and then a hotel stay AND conference registration...I'm crossing my fingers that my husband's company sells sooner rather than later, and that his retention bonus will be paid out later this summer. IF that happens, I'll be able to come. If not...tax time, it all hinges on tax time. And apparently that may be too late.<br><br>
I hope you do another one soon after that, Lennon, and maybe this time in Chicago, or somewhere kind of central like that...so that none of us have to travel COMPLETELY across the country? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I'm planning to be there. If I'm lucky I'll be 8 or 9 months pregnant at the time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Man, I WISH I could be there. Sounds so awesome. My situation is like Courtenay's.<br><br>
(btw, this is totally off-topic but the google ad at the bottom of my page when I clicked on this is "Are you John Lennon?")

OK, I'm not a birth professional but I'm bumping this to see if anyone is planning to go. I am but I can only afford to if I can find roomies! Anyone?<br><br>
Thanks!<br>
Lindsey<br><br>
FYI I'm a two time UC mama, who is not militant and happily supports attended births. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Just in case you are wondering what my background is.

I'm open to rooming with someone - though I do snore (just a warning). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I am imagining a great slumber party!!

Yay! I got replies! Reha, I PM'd you. Pamamidwife, I'm cool with snoring if you don't mind my baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> She doesn't fuss much, but it's enough to bother my husband, who's a very light sleeper. Then again, if you snore it's rather unlikely you're a light sleeper.<br><br>
I will say, though, that I'm trying to find 3 other women to room with to get this as cheap as can be though... so if I find other roomies who are not good with snoring I may not be able to room with you. I hope you aren't offended.... Otherwise we're good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Love and peace and happy birth conference vibes!<br>
Lindsey
