A friend from my birth center's mom and baby group recently welcomed her second edition in a rapid and peaceful home birth. Another birth center group mama documented the occasion and posted the pics to her blog. HAD to share (I hope they don't mind). Don't tattle on me, Leigh!
if they minded, they would have put a password on it. TFS!
It takes 12 pounds of grain and 2500 gallons of water to produce ONE POUND of beef.
Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

Beautiful!!! Love the birth banners... (And I can't believe how big Lorelai is...I haven't seen her since she was maybe eight months old!)
ETA: Wow, I can't stop looking at all the pictures on her blog now...those twins! Sweetest thing ever!
Those are awesome! TFS that with us. She looks so beautiful and peaceful in labor.
Is that a placenta print on the wall next to the Blue Moon poster? I was itching to do something artsy like that with mine.

Wow- she didn't even look like she was really in labor in almost any of those pics! Amazing! And great photography.

Yeah, their house is awesome. DH originally wanted to bury the placenta and plant a tree over it, but I wasn't super into it and when the moment came we just did nothing. I do like the print idea, though! And I am totally remembering that banner idea for planning showers/blessings
