I just stopped in as someone told me the intact care & circ care board were merged into here. I hate to say I am a little disappointed in that decision....as I know those two topics are touchy for people & I liked seeing them separated...plus I am not sure if people even will realize they can post questions or topics here related to that since it is pretty much not allowed on most other boards really (to avoid debates popping up)....

But anyway - I am still here checking in from time to time.

Oh & I forgot I changed my siggie...LOL - I am Beckie (35) Married to Joel (37) and am the proud momma of two boys: Jonah aged three & Issac 11 weeks - who have bother been very healthy & for the most part treated naturally meaning we practice fullterm/child led nursing, avoid antibiotics, they are both intact, unvaxed, etc - we just avoid medical interventions whenever possible generally as a family & certainly for our children. So - pretty much I come here for the "intact part" because there are boards for the rest of those "health" topics like the homeopathic board, the choosing not to vax board, the BF past one year board, etc...LOL

Not sure why the boards were merged. There are several here, actually. Probably from lack of interest or hosts, I imagine? That's why boards are usually merged.

Glad to have you here, though!

Hi... lurker mostly... DD was recently diagnosed with a seizure disorder and I'm part of the dev'd delay board, since this one is in the same catagory I thought I'd check it out.

Wish they had a board for seizure disorder children (prob not much of a request for it though)

^^^ You could always request one. Most of these boards didn't used to be here....I requested the recurrent pg loss board actually. I just took some time & did some digging in posts & sought out others here that had RPL & had them back me up in the request. I am certain that you could do something similar...just pop into various boards & write a post asking if anyone there has a child with a seizure disorder...because yours does & you are looking for other mommas to talk to about it...then keep track of everyone's user names & make a list, etc & then you can request it & PM all of them to let them know it exists. In the meantime you could also suggest they come here to discuss it & you can post topics on it as well for the things that directly impact you....there are ways to gather these mommas together if you need the support. If you need any more input PM me anytime....I don't know much about seizure disorders, but I do know how to find the mommas you are looking for! I absolutely know a few other members that have children with various seizure disorders, so I know they are here.

Oh & welcome of course!

I know it was not a super active board, but I did refer to it from time to time and really liked being able to read or post about it without the whole circ vs intact thing.

I'm going to request subforums for this board. I think it'll help keep the main forum from getting so muddy when people come here looking for specific topics.

*Edit*

Rachel asked me to let all of you know that you can create Social Groups for the boards that were merged. There won't be any subforums for them. If you have questions or need help setting them up, you can pm her.
