Cool I got to meet the Duggars! w/pic LOL

Edit: Someone bumped this up today - it's from January. lol

Last night Alex (my baby) and I went to the Screening of The Business of Being Born! (A new film by Ricki Lake that educates people and empowers them to really know their choices in childbirth.)There was only going to be one screening in Arkansas but it was only an hour and a half from here so I was so excited that I could attend!

My sister, sister-in-law, and my mother came with me and I thought it was neat that they got to see a little part of what I do. The whole auditorium was filled with breastfeeding, babywearing mamas so I felt right at home - I did not see a single stroller or bottle anywhere! :-)I got to meet a lot of the other doulas, midwives, lactation consultants and other birth professionals in the area.

Is it sad that I knew every single sling that I saw? :-) I saw Mobys, am Ergo, Maya wraps, Didymos, ect. It being winter all the babies had pants on but I bet if I could have seen their cloth diapers I would have know all the brands of those too! I was also on the lookout for other Arkansas DS mamas but did not see any, as far as I could tell anyways - all I had to go on was icons - which are tiny.

I also got to meet Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Jim and Michelle were their with the newest baby, 5 month old Jennifer and I got a photo. lol (Yes, the baby is in a carseat. Yes it was the only carseat in the whole room - that I saw.....But a few minuets later she was using a sling! )



The movie was AWESOME!!!

I'm a doula so there was no new information for me but I loved that it is presented in a way that everyone will relate to it. My sister and all her friends are way mainstream but she loved the film. She said, " I was a little worried that I wouldn't be quite granola enough to handle it, but the movie was actually really wonderful!! I will definitely recommend that all my prego friends go see this movie."

So I think it is a great first step towards finding a solution for the horrible way maternity care in America has gone downhill.

I didn't want to drive home in the dark so Alex and I stayed the night at my sister's, Alex was so good. He was perfect on the drive there, perfect at the event, perfect at Rachel's (aside from terrorizing their cat), went right to bed perfectly and was perfect on the drive home! And I loved being able to get out of the house for a while, Alex and I will have to go on some more overnight outings as it was so nice not to worry about fixing supper, cleaning the house, putting all the kids to bed ect.

Anyways....I just wanted to share because I had such a fun night! Seems like my whole world is in my house so it was nice to get out, I even fixed my hair first time in like.....forever.
