It is no secret that I am dying to be confronted about nursing my toddler in public.  Organizing a nurse-in and contacting the national media is top of my priority list after making sure everybody knows that state law protects my right to breastfeed my baby anywhere I see appropriate.  So yeah.  I love this:  You just told the wrong mama to go breastfeed in the bathroom.

I have been reading more and more about Waldorf Education as Henry gets older.  As much as I love the child-led education of unschooling, I really really like the Waldorf philosophy of learning through play and helping children develop a lifelong love of learning for learning's sake.  I spent way.too.much.time clicking through Waldorf minded mamas' links about their nature tables at The Magic Onions weekly Friday link-up.

LOVE this accidental unnasisted homebirth story on Mama Birth's blog.  This mama cracks me up and I love the way she so fully trusted her body even after a birth center transfer turned c-section with her first baby.

Did you know ACOG states that babies are over-due *after* 42 weeks?  If baby is healthy and mama is healthy, there is no need to be pushed into an early induction.  Let your baby choose it's own birthday!

I oogled over this picture of a baby being born breech for a solid 10 minutes.

I am very excited about watching the play "Birth" via webcast tomorrow night.  I am a proud supporter of an organization with a mission like this:  BOLD is a community who passionately believe childbirth is normal and that when we trust birth pregnant mothers and their babies are honored. We envision a world where there is no violence or coercion of pregnant mothers; where each mother can have the birth she wants.

Got any links I need to read?

Mandi @ Living the Good Life said... That's pretty much exactly what I've been clicking on this weekend. To the tee.

Have I mentioned how I love having such a close friend with such similar view points, priorities and lifestyle? Well, I do. :)
