If you are new why don't you introduce yourself and let us know a bit about you.

I'll go first. I'm aussiemidwife, the creator and one of the administrator of this forum. I really excited about this forum. I see it being a wonderful place to gain information and support on natural birthing and gentle parenting. I am the mother of the three children and grandmother of 1. My first son was born after a horrible experience in a hospital. It was this experience that inspired me to become a midwife and try to change the experience of women giving birth. I had two more children after becoming midwife and they were born at home - in a peaceful loving environment. My first son is now 20 and recently became a dad. His son was also born at home (my home which was fantastic). My second son is now 9 and my daughter is 6. I lead a very busy, but fulfilling life.

I am looking forward to reading about you.
