 Does anyone have any recommendations or their favorite natural PRE-conception book(s). I'm looking for something that will review the different things couple can/should do in the few months prior to ttc. So what are your favorites? Which would you recommend and what did you like about it/them? Thanks in advance!

Does anyone here have PCOD? If so, how long were you TTC? Any natural remedies that help? My midwife is thinking I may have it (my previous doctor thought I did) and it scares me. My sister-in-law had it and they TTC for 3 years before having in-vitro. My husband are starting to try now and I (I'm sure like all women) want to have a baby soon, and am super worried that we won't be able to. My periods (I have been off of BC for 6 months, and will never go back on) have been kinda weird. The first was 2 weeks off, the second 4 days off, the third was a week off, the fourth is a week and 1 day off etc. Any suggestions or help? I've been taking Vitex but kind of sporadically. After my period I hope to take it more regularly...if I ever get my period. TIA!

Mamarevolution.com was started in early winter 2004 by four young mamas who needed a place where they belonged. Too young and alternative for babycenter and too old for the teen based online communities, they struck out to make a home for mamas who just didn’t fit in anywhere else. After a few nights of brainstorming and women sharing their talents, Mamarevolution.com was born.

Mamarevolution is a pro-choice, feminist community who seeks to support, encourage and educate young women and mothers from all backgrounds and cultures. Our goal is to provide the community and support that is so desperately needed as we fight for our rights as parents and women, and to defeat the social stereotypes that surround young or alternative parents.

While we promote breastfeeding and natural parenting, we recognize that each family is unique and has their own set of needs and customs. We respect and support all families and their allies in their quest to raise strong, positive and socially conscious children.

This community needs an entry so I thought this would make a good one:

Oh my God, I cannot believe how angry my daughter was earlier. I swear I've never heard her yell like that before. A couple of times I went into her room half expecting her head to do a 360 on her neck. That's how mad she was.

And if she had started speaking in different voices? Shit... I probably would have had to leave the house for a while. Come back when the boyfriend gets home from work. I'd explain the problem to him and let him figure out a solution. He's braver than I. He can handle that kind of pressure.

After all, what else could I do? I couldn't just stay there if she were posessed with demons. I'd just be putting myself in danger. Besides, if she were posessed I'm sure she'd be just fine without me.

Welcome to anaturalstart!

When I first created this community in 2005 I had been hoping to create a place where people could find advice and articles about giving their new babies the best, most natural start in life. This motivation was fueled by my strong feelings toward breastfeeding, cloth diapering and attachment parenting.

I still have strong feelings about all of these things, but I realize that some approaches to parenting are not realistic to every one. Especially the militant approach because that reduces realistic thinking to a minimum.

Now, what exactly do I mean by realistic thinking? I have decided that a firm example of it can be found here in my good friend grypx's journal. In my experience, this gal is a great reality check for all those crunchy moms out there who think their way is perfect.

Don't get me wrong, though, I'm not against crunchy moms. I'm pretty crunchy myself. However, sometimes crunchy doesn't work for everyone all the time. So those of your who aren't as crunchy as me and the people I know, your perspectives are more than welcome here. This place will need a little variety, after all, or it will be a boring and redundant community indeed.

I say, to give babies the most natural start you have to allow yourself to think realistically and allow other folks to do the same. Now, I don't mind some drama, but I will correct and freeze any comments that spout untruths about anything from breastfeeding, to co-sleeping, to drugs and alcohol.

I want to bring the reality of parenting back out in the open and realistically, no one is perfect and everyone has different opinions. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and as long as your opinion has a foundation to stand on it won't be knocked down here.

Open-mindedness is the only rule here. I hope I won't have to add more. That's the benefit of having a little hippy chick as your maintainer.

So spread the word! I know there are other people out there who feel the same way so hunt them down and bring them over!
