Chicago-area Homebirth Meetup - Mother & Baby, caring for both the natural way

  • August 26, 2012 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our monthly gatherings begin with introductions and sharing of birth stories, followed by a conversation about the topic of the month. As always, general questions and conversations around homebirth and birth in general are most welcome. Partners are encouraged to attend and children may join in on the fun, too. Please let us know that you'll be here so we can save some cookies for you!

Join Lynn Bednar, CNC and owner of Walsh Natural Health, for a look at how to best take care of yourself during pregnancy and beyond, including natural ways to soothe your baby and take care of common postnatal concerns. We will discuss nutrition secrets for pregnancy that will give your baby the best start, and natural solutions for promoting labor, milk production, reducing cramping pains, preserving your energy, baby skin care and more.

    Hi, I just joined this group and unfortunately will be out of town on 8/26 for the next meeting. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and very interested in a home birth but I'm having trouble finding a midwife. I contacted Hillary Kieser at Gentle Birth Care, but she has a wait list. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

      I suggest that you consider a birth options consultation with me. Not only can I save you time - I can increase your confidence and help you make informed decisions for birth and parenting. Please call or email me - [masked] or[masked]

    This should be a very interesting conversation. There are so many gentle ways to support health and well-being. I hope she will talk about homeopathics too! Families I work with find them very helpful for chronic childhood challenges.
