I'm going to be very simplistic here and say that holistic means "healthy" to me. Health can be physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, and can mean healthy relationships with others. A holistic life is an examined life, and is healthy on as many of those levels as possible. It can also involve a healthy relationship with our planet and our greater community.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
I've been involved on the fringes of holistic living all my life, but I really got in deep when I became a mom almost 6 years ago.
a little about me
I'm an unschooling mom to two fabulous little girls ages 4 and 6.5. I have been married to a wonderful man for 10 years. I am a midwife. My family and I live in Fort Mill, SC.
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
As a midwife, I provide prenatal and postpartum care and attend out-of-hospital births. I teach childbirth education with an emphasis on natural childbirth. I can also provide in-hospital labor support (doula work).

Hi Leigh. I also saw your UNFI post. We have a UNFI group in Fort Mill. Maybe we could join our groups to get a better discount. We are currently getting 6% off non-sale items. We do pay a $10 (or 10%, whichever is lower) fee on our orders to help pay for the fuel surcharge, delivery location (Anne Springs Greenway), and website. We have a lot of gluten-free/casein-free members, and we split a lot of cases between the members so that we don't have to individually order a whole case at a time.
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"

"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
