A New Post and A New Week

WoW!!!!! It has been crazy and no time whatsoever to sit still. Ready for vacation to be able to sit down and relax.....hahaha!!!!! I say that and when we get there, we will find a million things that we want to do. But I guess that is what you are suppose to do on vacation. And then you need a vacation from the vacation when you get home. I'm so ready for vacation!!!!!!

All of that being said, I have this huge desire to really get off my laurels and do something with Mothering The Mother. Have you heard about "Group Prenatal Care" or some places call it "Centering"? I am totally fascinated by the whole concept. See, I do all of the prenatal interviews with all of our new Mom's that come to our office. Once, that is done, I may see them in the hall or sometimes, I don't see them at all. I would love for our office to try it and of course, I want to be the one who facilitates the Group. How exciting to be able to put to use what I have been taught, learned and read.
How would you like it? Would you like the benefit of working with other Mom's that are in the same place that you are? All about the same time in their pregnancy. You could discuss your dealings with nausea and vomiting, your favorite thing about being pregnant, encourage each other, meet other women, educate each other with a facilitator and talk about anything. Discuss your "Fourth- Semester". The part where you come home with this new baby and now life is totally different and what happens now? To be able to talk to other Mom's who already have children and how they managed and what works for them. What do you think?
After the 30 min-60min meeting them you get to have your one on one MD visit. I am totally excited about it. I have one MD that I believe would love it and 2 others I will need to convince....LOL. That is ok. God knows the plan already and that is where I can leave it. Just pray.

Secondly, I'm wanting to add links to the side bar about different topics. I would love to hear about what kind of links would be helpful.
C-S and being in the OR- Looking for a good link. I have a few but need a couple of others.
Breastfeeding- Any that you find helpful?
Babywearing- Love this concept- what about you?
Active Laboring----Websites?
Waterbirth- YouTube or other sites?

Please leave information in the comment section below. I'm really excited. Who knows, while away, the blog and the website may get a makeover!!!!!!!!! Excitement is just to much, I may bust!!!!!!!!! Gotta run for now. FEEDBACK PLEASE!!!!!!!

Laboring With You,
Doula Mama Pam

Personally, I wouldn't be interested in the centering concept. I've always been a private person, and tend to deal with things like that on my own. It wouldn't help me to hear others in the same boat. However, I do enjoy the online interaction with others in the same boat on TriadMommies, but an in office setting wouldn't be for me. I do wish there was a way that you could have a meet-up with expecting moms to meet them and discuss your services and options, and offer those types of classes.
