Profile Information

What does "holistic" mean to you?
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).

Had fun yesterday! Sent a new mama to your site today.

We thought we'd head to Ilios Noche on Providence Rd, about 7:30pm tomorrow for the MNO. Any chance you can join us?

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.

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
