Although I moved to our town over two years ago, I didn't know until last month that we have two Attachment Parenting groups within a 30 mile radius. So I decided to deal with a (for me) long drive because I really need female friends who share similar values, and Zari loves to be around other children. Today we met at a Children's Museum, and it was so fun! It is an amazing place, full of activities, toys, play gyms, art/drawing materials, interactive educational displays, and more. There are entire areas designed especially for infants and toddlers. So much that I can't even start to describe everything.
Zari enjoyed herself, and I got to meet several cool mamas. Some of us went out to lunch afterwards. I chatted at length with a woman who'd had two cesareans, both for breech presentation. For her next baby, she really wants to have a vaginal birth and in this area--as in most--that means a home birth. So we talked about breeches, midwives, home births, and other good stuff like research on vaccinations. So, was it worth making the 35 minute drive? Most definitely!
