Hi Everyone! My name is Dawn, and I am one of the Mods in this group.. :o) I am a married stay at home mom of four wonderful children, all ecologically breast fed and naturally weaned. I love spending time with my family, taking care of my home, visiting with friends, and volunteering in my community. I am a certified Lactation Consultant and Natural Parenting Instructor, and love spending time on this site providing information and support, visiting with other moms, and making friends!
Hi, I'm Mia a stay at home mom of a 1 year old boy. I did natural birth with him and wore him for a long time, but now have trouble considering he's a big 30lbs and has been the last few months. I still breast feed and I co-sleep with him as well. I want to learn more about natural parenting, as I'm very new to it and kind of fell into it by doing what just felt right!
Hello my name is Kayla I am a 22 year old mother of 2 I am also a stay at home mom. I am really doom everything I can to live as naturally as possible for the sake of health benefits for my family. My mother calls me a hippie I think she's crazy.
I was not able to have a natural childbirth both my babies were induced labor my son was 2 weeks "over due" and my daughter was 1 week "over due" my son was 8'8 and my daughter was 9'12
If I ever have a third baby I plan on having a midwife and home delivery
Hope to get to know you all :)
Hi! I am trying to convieve baby #2. I have PCOS and for my first baby, I concieved using Clomid and got pregnant on the second try. I am apprensive about using it again and want to go natural. The problem is I am not aware of the efficiacy rates of natural remedies as they have not to my knowledge been studied. My chiro recommended a Standard Process Vitamin and natural hormone stimulation therapy to help me ovulate and then concieve. DOes anyone have any experience with this having had PCOS? Poly Cystic Ovaries?

Hello, so glad to see a post on this! This is my first pregnancy, and I really want a natural, at home birth with a midwife... it seems I'm really in the minority! so it will be great to talk with others who want the same thing. I'm 31, and in Arizona.
This is a great group to find other moms who have had or will have a homebirth. Welcome!

i am also wanting to have a natural birth experience, i am due in April 2013. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. i'm 25 and in Colorado.
What kind of natural experience are you looking to have? Will you be in hospital or home birth?
