The numbers have been swelling. Me thinks it's time we organise some get togethers!!!

How about everyone add's their details to the list? Homebirth wannabe's more than welcome - the more positive empowering talk about birth, the better.

I'm in central QLD, if there's anyone else out there in QLD?  Central QLD women need tonz of support, because they don't even believe that home birth is an option.  But if you're persistent enough it can be   biggrin.gif

Can you guys do me a favour and copy and paste my original list, and ad your name, and state if I did not list it?

And then everyone just copy and paste the previous list..

Another Kiwi here.  I have plenty of get-togethers with my friends... funnily enough about half of them are homebirthers, the other half have elective c-sections!  tongue.gif   The best thing is that we all respect each others choices. original.gif

HI Kylie, sorry didn't mean to forget to add you to the list, but I didn't know you had changed your name anyway!
