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.
