she lets the kids be so involved. David got to find his new brother or sister's heartbeat with the doppler. It was adorable! They both helped pump up the blood pressure cuff. They love going and actually did not want to leave. I love how there is no dont touch that, mam can you please make sure they dont touch that. Oh thats not a kids toy BLAH BLAH BLAH!! Its such a relaxed amazing environment, which in trun I think has made this pregnancy fly by and be just be I dunno hard to explain but I am sure you ladies understand!

All is well with our third miracle! BP is perfect, HB is perfect, everything is perfect! We go back April 15th and will get our referral for our 20 week u/s! But baby's gender will remain a surprise.

YAY for a good midwife. Ours is friendly like that also. She did the dopplar part but let my son hold the machine....she includes them on measuring my fetal growth (the cm from pubic bone to top of uterus)...then she also lets them play with the birthing class baby and pelvic bone stuff (it's all stuffed) but the kids like to put the umbilical cord/placenta stuffed thing on the baby and then they like to play with the pelvic bone and the birthing ball..etc....She keeps telling me (when I get on to them) "dont worry there is nothing they can hurt in here".....

I do love midwives!!!! So exciting! YAY for a healthy baby!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
