Id like to get to know some of you....

About me,
I just turned 28 on the 4th. I have four children one who I just miscarried. Boy 9 Girl 4 another girl who will be 1 on the 12th. I'm a evidenced based childbirth educator however I have zero knowledge on misscarring. Birth doula, breastfeeding counclor, placenta encapsulation and inspiring naturalists. I make my own 100% natural products such as deodorant, laundry soap, make up, baby cloth diapers, body butter and much much more I also regrow kitchen scraps. I'm a essential oil and herb user. I believe in cloth diaper cosleeping breastfeeding no vaccine among other strong beliefs HOWEVER I am not a judgemental advocate and understanding to all walks of life.

I had two awful hospital births and swore after never willingly birth in a hospital again. I finally had my life changing spiritual unassisted homebirth and became a hardcore free birth advocate. However I support all woman in any birth decisions the choose, hospital home midwife e.g.

Hopeing to have my last child to complet my beautiful family I already have.

Hubby is a welder anf fitter and works out at camp while we live on Canada's beautiful island.

Hi and welcome!  My name is virginia I.m 30 yr old will be 31 in June. I have pcos and three children here one in heaven. (Chemical pregnancy at 4+ weeks in the end of jan this year). My first two (my girls) were both c-sections that I found out later were not needed. I hated it so bad I vowed to never have another one again unless there was a true medical need. When I got pregnant with my son I found an awesome doc who truly believes in a woman's ability to give birth. Is well versed in vaginal breech birth forceps use and strong supporter of doulas. He's even delivered two sets of VBAC triplets!  So for the whole pregnancy I drove and hour and 45 min to his office for visits and two hours to the hospital he delivers at. On jan 31  2013 I went into labor naturally (40 weeks 6 days) and gave birth vaginally!  I do make my own bar soap (lye and oils) because of my sons allergies. I do vax though. But also my son has a heart defect and any chance of infection can kill him so it's important to protect him from any infection. I cloth diaper too and sew all the covers we use. I love to sew and sew a lot. That's about all I can think of. Lol

Hey!! Welcome.

I'm Emily. I've been here since August 2013 I think....? But I've been TTC with my fiancΓ© for over four years now. I've had a few surgeries lost an ovary and both tubes so were doing IVF. I have one child who will be ten in June.

My first IVF cycle transfer was in November and on 12/6 I found out the IVF failed. Our second IVF transfer was just on 2/10 we found out on 2/20 we were pregnant. They said 4 weeks one day pregnant. I miscarried that baby at 5 weeks 5 days just last Monday :-(

We are doing another cycle waiting for my period to start then starting medications and they're thinking early May transfer think we will transfer our last three embryos.

Welcome!
I've been slowly getting into some of the things you talked about, oils, cloth diapering, breast feeding & regrouping kitchen scraps to start.
And we're trying to make your last (I think, anyway) family member to our household :) πŸ™

So sorry about the miscarriage I had one in January, sadly I know many who have had them in the last few months :(

Hopefully your stay here ttc isn't too long ;)
