Tell me to go. . . (stole your thread title, Erin)

I found a homebirth group in my town. It's crazy that there is actually a group of homebirthers here. I have never had a homebirth, or even a vaginal birth at all, but they invited me to meet with them at a gathering they are having tomorrow evening. I am welcome to bring my kids and there will be someone there doing a cloth diaper demonstration and some of you know that I've been thinking for a while that I'd really like to do cloth, so this may be a perfect opportunity to see the diapers and see if it's something I can do long term. HERE is the website for the lady who is doing the cloth demonstration.

Go?

YES! Silly question. Blum 3 lol
If nothing else maybe you'll meet a mom who will be willing to meet up at the park sometime.

Sounds a lot more fun than my squadron wife meet and greet I have to attend tomorrow night.

OMG GO! Sounds like a blast. You don't have to have had a homebirth to become friends with homebirthers! Its not like its some sort of secret society.

Oddly enough, I belong to a MeetUp group that is having a homebirthing Meetup soon. I can't go because its in the middle of the day on a weekday. Argh. Stupid school. Otherwise, I'd be all over it. I've actually been toying with the idea of a homebirth.

Sorry, thread jacking.

GO!

If we decide to have a third, I'm seriously thinking I might see if there is a HB midwife that would take on a VBA2C. I would LOVE a homebirth.

Go go go, they sound like they would welcome you, and you can find some Mum's who can help you and maybe even help in your healing from Kole's birth

Go, go, and go. Like the others have said, it will let you meet some moms in your area. And since you are interested in cloth diapers, you will be able to see if they may be a fit for you.

Go, go, go!!!

I bet you'll be surprised that a lot of the HB moms are also VBAC moms as well. Found that true out here. Sounds like a fun time!

Oh, bring one of the carriers you made as well. East conversation and another good way to connect. Maybe that other baby wear mom from the store will be there. You never know.

I hope as I'm typing you're out of the house. :mrgreen:

I actually drug myself out to the wife meeting tonight with Aiden in tow. Despite others saying their kids would be there, Aiden was the only kid. lol. I'm thinking you're having a better time than I did chasing a kid around a bar.

I didn't make it. As I was about to get ready and leave, Kole vomited a massive quantity of vomit all over me. It required a shower. I was actually pretty bummed about it because 1.) I hadn't planned anything for dinner because there was going to be food, and 2.) I really wanted to see the cloth diaper demonstration. I'll try again the next time they meet.
