Jenn and the Natural Birth & Parenting group mods
My name is Tracy and I am the mom of three,step mom of one, and just found out we are expecting. I am new to natural parenting, and slowly changing the way we do things in our family. I no longer vaccinate because my son had a severe reaction resulting in minor nerve damage. I have never breastfed, but am going to try with the coming baby. We have co-slept, but don't anymore. I wou;d really like to find friends in this group who are willing to help me learn more about cloth diapering, organic eating, and a few other things. I do not judge others for the choices that they make for their families, please do the same for me.

Hi, I am a chiropractic student. I just started my internship and I can't wait to open my own practice. I am going to have a practice focused on pregnancy and natural birth. My husband and I are expecting our first child and are both very excited. We are going to have a natural home birth with a midwife. Does anyone have any advice or questions about pregnancy and chiropractic?

I was wondering does anybody know of any formula that has NO DHA in it? Thanks all :)
Pam- I am a 2nd time around mother to 4 month old Thomas. I have two grown daughters aged 20 and 18. I am a full-time High Needs Special Ed. Teacher on an Indian reservation in South Dakota. I am originally from Ohio and lived in Michigan for 20 years. I want to raise my Native American son in a more "natural" or healthy manner than I raised my daughters.
Looking forward to learning as I go!

Hi! I'm Annemarie. I'm due with #2 in September and very new to natural birth and parenting. The only natural thing I did for my DD was making her baby food other than that, I had her in a hospital, with drugs, fed her formula after quitting BF'ing for 6 weeks, I didn't baby wear or co-sleep and I'm interested in doing things very differently with this baby, starting with a natural birth. Hoping to gain a lot of knowledge and information from this group!
I'm Sarah, and a SAHM to Rachel, our 16 week old. All natural birth in a hospital (DH works at the hospital so ...)
We bf on demand, co-sleep and sometimes bedshare, cloth diaper, selective vax (I wanted no vax and DH wanted all vax so we compromised).
I love every minute of being a mommy (even when I want to pull out my hair from lack of sleep because the Ravenous Beast is awake every 30 mins eating).
I do not like medications or anything that messes with body chemistry and natural rythm.
We use NFP to chart and postpone pregnancy.

Hello Natural Birthing Mamas
I am extremely passionate about Birthing options and choices for women so I want to introduce myself to all of ya. I think there hasn't ever been a better time in the history of the planet to be pregnant and a mama with all the resources and options available today to live a healthy, happy, & holistic lifestyle. There is still a lot of room for growth but we are heading in the right direction with all the women out there supporting each other whether you are a doula, midwife, md, natropath, prenatal yoga instructor, child birth educator, nurse, or pro active mama, it is powerful how many women are letting their inner genius shine through by offering what they know on a local community level or virtually online.
