Have you given birth at home? With a midwife or without?

Yes, with a midwife

What would you like to discuss at meetings?

pretty much anything dealing with natural birth and parenting - homeschooling and unschooling are big interests of mine at the moment but I have a vast number of interests. I'm also into homesteading, permaculture, location independence, environmentalism, art, music, dance, meditation, yoga... probably anything others bring up!

Are you a childbirth professional?

no

What do you have to offer this group? What would you like to get from it?

honest, deep, caring connection

What is your most profound birth memory?

My daughter's birth - it changed me beyond anything I could have imagined. When I stepped into the birthing pool, she and I became one with the water and she slipped out of me like a wave of water being poured from the pitcher into the pond... but it was not just her leaving my body - I was also being poured at the same time. I experienced a kind of bliss I cannot explain any other way than that I became one with her and everything around me. It was Easter Sunday morning and fresh new leaves were glowing bright green against the distant dim shadows of the other side of a ravine behind our house. Rays of morning light were streaming through the canopy of trees outside our french doors. Birds were singing their hearts out. As I nursed her and stared into her eyes, I decided that every moment of my life could be that blissful and set out to make it so. It's been a lovely journey so far!
