The main issue that I have faced lately with becoming pregnant is that most of my friends are completely uneducated about birth. I am a huge activist of natural birth and attachment parenting.
I am looking forward to having an unmedicated birth. My husband and I are thinking of a water birth. Still up in the air...dealing with insurance.
I am also planning on breastfeeding...for at least the first year. Once we own a house (and do not have to rely on a public laundry) I will be cloth diapering.
I believe in co-sleeping an baby wearing. That said...I have a hard time finding like minded young mothers. I have a huge support system of older an more educated women that I go to for advice and questions. But it would be nice to have more young mothers that are choosing the same choices as my hubby and I.
What are your thoughts on natural birth and parenting?
