I am going to the Home Birth Consensus Summit. Thank you.

I’m going.

Thank you so much for helping to get me there. If the responses to both the request for help and thoughts on home birth are indicative in any way of who reads this blog, we are as diverse as I thought.

I am a little sappy at the moment so I will keep it brief and say thank you. I hope I contribute a useful voice to the discussion and I look forward to seeing a real autumn, my favorite season, as well. I love our ten month summers out here in Southern California, but I just saw snow fall for the first time in a Courtyard Marriot parking lot in Atlanta this February and am excited to cross See a Real Autumn™ off my bucket list. Now I need to find a horse to ride… never done that.

I hope you’ll keep the thoughts on home birth coming. While working my way through some pretty hefty commentary from everyone from MDs to home birth parents, I am seeing lots of commonalities leaping off the screen. I look forward to reading more.

I am glad that Gaia saw fit to get all the dollars into your Chi account.

Can't wait to ride bikes with you Jill Unnecesarean. I'll bring the cards for the spokes.

Ms. Holloman,

Thank you for pointing out that the conference center is 100% natural. I will bring out a sweet pair of pedal pushers from 1983 just for you.

Cards for spokes? Dude, I'm totally going with the reflective jangly things.

Huzzah Jill for being able to make it! Here in the upper reaches of New York, October brought with it super chill. Leaves are falling, the sky looks snowy (a change from last year where it didn't snow 'til after Christmas), and kids are already screaming about hypothermia. Ah, fall.
