Every mother knows what is best for her child. This community is for mothers who had, or are interested in, an alternative birth--such as HypnoBirthing, Bradley Method, Home-Birth, Water-Birth, VBAC, Using a Midwife, etc. And for those who choose to use, or are interested in, alternative mothering techniques--such as Attachment Parenting, Cloth Diapering, Exclusively Breastfeeding, Elimination Communication, Babywise, Non-circ, Non-vax, Alternative Medicine, etc. Come one, come all... Whether none or all of those things describe you---We do not judge here.
Is it worth it? What would you recommend? What are the benefits? I'm just looking for friendly advice. Thanks.
