Hey ladies! Happy New Year! I can't believe it's January already! December just flew by for me. Just for a small update, I am signing up our board for January top 50. I'm going to do my best to be as present as possible to keep the board active and make sure your virtual natural birth community is here for you! Help boost our board by responding to threads and supporting other mothers. I'll also be opening a chat thread this month to help us get to know one another a little better. We've had quite a few new moms join this past month and I think it will be great to get to know you all better! If anyone wants to help out with things like question of the day and things like that, just jump in and go for it!

Who's here? What's your name?

Where are you from?

Kids ages and names?

What's been up this past month?

What are you looking forward to in January?

I've already ridden once too, when Rilynn was 8 or 9 days old.
I am gonna wait a few more weeks before I get back in the saddle again though.
