I have a room reserved for the conference (Thursday-Monday) that can hold 4 people, and it turns out I won't need it (staying in another room). I still have the reservation in case anyone is looking for a 4-person room. PM me if you'd like to take the reservation from me!

I had a terrible time picking my tracks, too. Thank goodness they're recording the sessions (don't know if it's all of them or just some). I'll be buying those mp3s the second they're available, especially the ones that I couldn't attend!<br><br>

I asked Carla about that and she said they'd be recording most of them, but any of them that relied heavily on visual components (hand-outs, slides, etc.) will not be made available for d/l.<br><br>
I still need to pick my tracks. But I didn't know until last week that I'd be able to go for sure.

Ladies - we just got a post across one of the boards that Carla is offering 5 scholarships for the conference! You will have limited choices on the tracks, I think, but the registration fees would be half-priced. This might make it do-able for some of you! PM me if you're interested and I'll give you Carla's email address! Oh, I hope some of you can come, now!!!<br><br>

Hi there,<br><br>
It seems that the hotel does not allow rollaways in rooms with 2 beds, so I might need a different room to share if there is anyone with space still available.<br><br>
Bringing my air mattress (Which is queen size sems like it may be to big) plus linens puts quite a bit of a crunch on luggage for travel since I am only allowed one carry one and one check-in piece<br><br>
I don't take up much room in a bed... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Please feel free to forward to anyone you might know who has room...<br><br>

I'll admit it, I'm jealous, everyone have a great time! if not for the expense involved, i would be there. I would rather go to this conference than the MT conference which is near me.<br><br>
Will these sessions be on tape or mp3 again, that would be such as a blessing.<br><br>
Keep us updated while at the conference...

I believe a lot of the sessions are going to be taped.

I only just today saw the lineup of sessions, and I want in! I also found out I could use airline miles for the ticket, so it almost seems meant to be. I would however be very interested in finding one or more women to share a room with. I could even bring my thermarest and sleeping bag and camp on the floor if necessary.<br><br>
Anyone with room for one more?

if no one replies here, you should call Carla because she probably knows someone looking for a room-mate.

OK...let's talk about it now!<br><br>
I found this experience to be so rewarding. this was my first birth related conference so i don't have much to compare but it all just seemed so personal. i have taken so much away from this.<br><br>
my almost laughable thought during the conference was that it that we all were there learning how to do nothing at all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Words don't do justice to how this conference has affected me.<br><br>
I am so, so grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I agree with Reha - I'm not even sure what to say, it was so powerful.<br><br>
Michel Odent! Sarah Buckley! Gloria Lemay!<br><br>
It's so amazing. SO amazing. I'm still in a serious oxytocin bubble from it all.
