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.

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?

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
