The communitys had another busy month, more long term readers joining us as active members & lots of new users finding us through the rejuvenation of our facebook page
Weve had 6 new births recently, 2 mums were labouring over mothers day which was very exciting.
Congratulations to all the new mums & welcome earth side babies, its been so lovely following along your pregnancy journeys & now hearing of your births & meeting your little ones too. Weve birthed another new forum called Early Daze specifically for newborn information, support, general chat & to better help accommodated our ever growing village.
The Perth, Sydney & Brisbane Get Togethers all now have dates & a Melbourne Get Together is gathering momentum. Our Homebirth Forum is powering along, as more & more women join the village looking for homebirthing support & information in a laid back yet empowered community. Its nice to see student Midwives & Doulas come in to the Birth Support (Midwives/ Doulas/ Students) section looking for follow throughs to offer free birthing support to. It feels right to be able to help Midwife & Doula students to complete their training & gain further experience. The simple act of taking on a student means we are helping, impacting & continuing the homebirth experience for many generations of women to come, we are not just receiving from Midwives & Doulas we are giving back to them also.
The Kids Creative Corner is growing nicely & is a wonderful place to come for creative ideas…feel free to share your own creative ideas & escapades as well. Our New Teens forum (Talking Teens Learning & Beyond) was launched in May & will grow steadily to help better support parents stay connected as our children grow.
The Special Needs & Disabilities Forum is also under way to better assist our community & to also support the growing number of children with ADD & ADHD whose parents are looking for alternative treatments & therapies. As you can see the Month of May was all about growth. Supply & Demand some may say : )
This month (June) were hoping to do a fair bit on connecting our community & will have another PM day, were also going to look at a few big topics like Women & Body Image & also Mummy Guilt. What an amazing journey to take together, sharing natural parenting information & supporting each other as we each move toward more connected, gentle & natural parenting.
