Happy New Year!
Random Thought #1
I'm excited that I got an amazon.com giftcard for Christmas so I can build up my reading library. I have three books on their way to me: Birth as an American Rite of Passage, Heart & Hands: A Midwife's Guide to Pregnancy and Birth, and The complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth. I'll be posting my thoughts on them as I read them. I've been impatiently waiting for the mailman to deliver them for a week. Oh the things that excite a birth junkie!
Random Thought #2
I've also been researching the various Childbirth Education programs available. It's definitely tough choosing one. I've narrowed it down to a few whose philosophies match mine(mostly). But making the decision and coming up with the funds is no easy task! Right now I'm leaning towards CBI or ALACE but I'm still not decided.
Random Thought #3
Caught the "extreme parenting" episode on 20/20 last night.
Yay for the Orgasmic Birth segment!
Nay for the breastfeeding and homebirth segments. They really needed to explain the difference between an unassisted birth and a midwife assisted home birth. Lazy journalism there.
HUH? for the reborn parenting. Didn't belong in this episode in my opinion.
