Goodbye blog-

I am unable to keep up with my blogs at this time. I confess that I am a Facebook addict, and have created a profile on Facebook that is exclusive to my birth junkie alter ego. This profile will serve as this blog was originally intended to: links to articles and websites about pregnancy, birth and parenting, and facilitating respectful comments and discussion about such things.
If you Facebook, please send a friend request to "Terri Birthadvocateforbabiesandmoms".
It's been fun- much love!

BLOOM is here!!

Finally- Spokane has one place to go to find local information about natural childbirth. This website pulls together all of the Spokane and Coeur d'Alene doulas, midwives, classes and more into one resource. We have really needed a site like this. I pray that this will help to knit together our community of natural birth advocates. Please check it out here- you will be pleased with all of Tine's hard work putting this together.
And- Tine blogged about my little Birth in Spokane blog here! Yay!

KellyMom Breastfeeding Support

I can't believe that I had forgotten about this site. It is packed full of information and helpful instructions for nursing and parenting. Check it out here, and I will add it to my sites on the sidebar.
