Hey all, hope this post is allowed.

I'm a big fan of the clothdiapering community on lj, but really thought it was time to have an Australian version. That way we can discuss local products and sell/ trade cheaply! So if anyone is interested: ausclothnappies.

Hope to see you there :)

water drop


(no subject)

I thought I should introduce myself here properly. I am 27 years old and am a mother of 3 girls and I have a baby on the way, due in Novemeber.

I thought I would include the story of my first birth, perhaps I will post the others at another time. It's quite long, so only read if you have some spare time.

Alicia's water birth story...

Alicia’s Birth Story

Born 10 June 2008
3.6kgs (7lbs 15oz)

Hamish took me in to the Birthing Centre at Flinders Medical Centre at 10am where our midwife, Mandy, induced me by method of rupturing my membranes. The breaking of my waters happened around 10:30am. As we weren’t sure how long it would take for this method of induction to “bring on” my labour, we discussed with Mandy the option of going home and doing the first part of labour at home. She suggested we go for a short walk around the hospital as she wanted to monitor me for the first hour and make sure that the baby’s heartbeat was stable and wasn’t becoming distressed due to the induction. We went for a short walk, and by 12 midday, I started to feel the aches and pains of labour beginning. Mandy again asked us if we wanted to go home to do the first part of labour at home, but I really didn’t want to leave the birthing room and I couldn’t stand the thought of getting into a car at that point. And so, labour began…

welcome to aussie mums!

a little about myself to start this community...

i live in SA. i'm currently pregnant with my first baby - 33 weeks and 5 days. my pregnancy has been wonderful - i've really enjoyed it. of course it's come with all the aches and pains, but there's been so many moments of joy too and i'm overwhelmed by how amazing our bodies are. i love feeling baby's movements and knowing there is another life growing inside me! i'm planning on an all natural water birth. i'm booked into flinders public hospital Birthing Centre. it's getting closer now - only 6 weeks to go! i plan to breastfeed, use cloth nappies, and delay vaccinations for 12 months. so if you're reading this and want to discuss any of those topics, i'm here.

otherwise, join the community, introduce yourself and start your own discussion!
