Hi everyone! My name is Kristin and I'm a sahm to a beautiful four month old ebf little girl named Alice. I am anti-circ, anti-vax, pro-breastfeeding, pro-cosleeping. We practice natural and peaceful parenting. We started out doing a delayed, selective schedule for vaccination until my lo had a reaction and we ended up in the er. Now, after all my research, we have opted not time continue vaccines. I had her in the hospital at 41 weeks 5 days after being in labor for two days. She was born on Mother's Day. At 3 1/2 months, she said mom, started rolling over, and started laughing. I know she's just imitating sounds, not actually talking, but she's ahead on her speech development so far and I'm telling her daddy her first word was mom, lol. I plan to have at least one more in a year or two, maybe more. I told dh we'll just take it one at a time. We are stocking up on essential oils and natural cures for illnesses to keep us healthy without running to the doctor all the time. My lo has never been sick, never even had a diaper rash and we don't stay locked up in our house. I'm also looking into a chiropractor, but they kind of scare me, so I'm still doing research. Y'all will learn, I research everything, lol. It's nice to meet all of you!

Hey everyone!

I'm Brittany, a 23 year old SAHM of 3 beautiful babies, 3 year old Victor 2 year old Mischa, and almost 4 month old Vaida. I married my best friend over 5 years ago, and love him more every day. 

We have recently jumped on the bandwagon and switched to cloth diapering, which was the best decision ever, I can't believe I didn't start sooner!  I've had 3 c-sections, 1st was breech, 2nd and 3rd were repeats because of "hospital policy".  Hoping to find a support system for a VBA3C with baby #4. 

I love to meet new people, learn new things, and share ideas!  Can't wait to meet some like-minded mommies!

Hi! New mom to a daughter born in June, labored for 47 hours & delivered all naturally. SAHM for now (laid off while on maternity leave) & loving it! We cloth diaper, EBF, cosleep, plan to make all of our own baby food, raise our kids on organic home grown foods & live a mostly vegetarian lifestyle (I was vegan before I met my fiance). We are very pro-vax & I know that's uncommon for 'crunchy' moms so would like to meet others who are. In my spare time (ha!) I like to read, go on long walks, write, bake & knit, crotchet & sew. I also have an addiction to tea & an enormous tea collection, I have a tea for everything ;)

And, I'm a natural parenting momma, all the way....breastfeeding, cloth diapering/wipes/pads, babywearing, homebirth, midwives, etc. :)

I like to sew and knit, as well as do other crafts.  I make much of my children's clothing (and diapers).

I am married to a wonderful man....and overall pretty happy with my life. :)

Hello, I'm a mom of a 5-year-old and a 6-month-old who I had naturally with the help of the best midwife ever, Amy Leland at Blessed Births, Greenville, SC.  My days go by so fast with working from home, a kindergartener, homemaking etc.  I'm even surprised that I actually have time to sit in front of my laptop without being interrupted-------I guess I spoke too soon.  I'm hearing crying which is now my signal to get off my seat and make sure everything is okay.  LOL

Hello my name is Natasha. I'm a sahm of three. My two oldest boys are in school, so it's usually just me and my two year old daughter at home. I'm currently pregnant with a surprise baby number 4. I'm planning a homebirth in April. My first two were c-sections and my last was a very successful hospital VBAC.

I consider myself a natural parent. Lol. I am currently still breastfeeding my 24 month old, although I'm pretty much over it. She's a demanding little diva. I'm attempting to wean her, but that's turned into a mess.

Anywho I'm happy to have found this group and I can't wait to get to know everyone. :)

Hi, I'm a stay-at-home-mama of a 10 month old daughter. I had a natural birth at a hospital with a doula and midwife present. I was able to labor at home for 95% of my labor. It was awesome! We've chosen not to vaccinate just yet - having not weighed all the pros and cons has rendered us action-less. She remains relatively vaccine free. I breastfeed and have never used formula and she has an entirely vegan diet. I make the majority of her food myself. We're predominantly using cloth diapers.

I would love to homeschool one day, but with my in-law family all being teachers/principals I think that it may be a huge point of contention. For now, I will have my dreams of homeschooling and see where that leads.

I am attending school to become a doula in January and am incredibly excited about it. Watching so many of my friends and family having difficult labours and births has made me want to do what I can to be more of a support for them.

Giving birth changed my life! I've completely re-evaluated my priorities and the way I live my life. I've become a vegetarian again and less dependant on over-the-counter and prescription drugs, preferring more homeopathic and holistic choices when possible.
