I'm a self sufficient person and am completely capable of taking care of the children on my own. I also do not have men in my life that are like that, we all are on the same page that child support is not expected and each person is free to explore what their soul desires. I think that should our relationship status change we are all grown up enough to ensure that the children are taken care of inwhatever way is most suitable to us. Really, if you are in a truly open relationship where each person respects and honours the other people choices, there isn't really much room for explosive issues. birth certificate
Not an issue as we fathers name is optional.

Moonmama,

Sounds like you have a great attitude coupled with "a few good men". I wasn't trying to suggest otherwise. My thinking was from a typical husband wife going to appointments, birth classes/Lamaze, and delivery, names and forms filled out, the mandatory infant car seat and you can drive it off the lot. The system that I as involved didn't really provide for a third leg. But I'm in the Midwest of USA, might be different were you are. And because of my own circumstance I can see questions or potential issues of parental rights. And what I mean is if the facts are different than how the doc's are filled out...and again I'm just speculating here.

And the best luck with your pregnancy

I do unassisted prenatal care and birth anyways as I am into Sacred Birthing and don't view pregnancy as a disease that needs to be "managed." I trust my intuition intimate knowledge of my body and baby and use that to discern if I need medical attention, and what procedures are right for me. In my last thread everyone was freaking out about a risk of STD's but most women don't even think for a second about taking a Rhogham shot which is a blood product preserved with mercury... There is nothing at all that I need signed by a doctor so I can proceed as I normally would even in the Midwest you can get around those things, I have many friends who work around the system to create the births they desire. So much of my life seems to be focused on System busting, even though I don't realize it at the time. I'm an Indigo for sure

There are actually a lot of women who do know what is in the things they take into their bodies while pregnant and weigh the pros and cons in an informed manner. There is less mercury in a rhogam shot than there is in a can of tuna! Although since you can have the shot after having the baby I would think that would be the safest course of action to prevent any danger to future pregnancies.

I consider myself a self-sufficient person too, but after watching my gf and her husband negotiate life with their new baby, I can't imagine doing so without at least one full-time co-parent for support. It's such an intense time!

Lol, I don't eat tuna either. I found the most amazing book when pregnant with my first called the complete organic pregnancy. It is highly inadvisable to eat tuna when pregnant because of the steadily rising mercury and pcb levels. Another difference is that eating tuna gives your body a slight chance of expelling some of the tuna and it's contents through the digestive system. Injections do not offer the same opportunity. Also, the safety of the amount of mercury in that sho does not take into account the total amount of mercury that would be in your and your baby's body cumatively, including all the vaccinations, tuna and other sources of environmental contamination that you in particular may hve been exposed to. It is insane o take te amount of mercury in the single shot out of context and declare it safe. Not with the increasing amounts of cancer and chronic illnesses developing in humans.

I am a involved with many many pregnant women as I am a doula and I do see how our culture often accepts the authority of a doctor over doing their own research. I decided for myself that I am not comfortable with that, and I am no alone in that as you have mentioned. There are many women who now are doing research but it is far from the vast majority. I am happy to hear you are one of them, even if we don't come to te same conclusions on the issues <3

I live in an intentional community so there are lots of people around to help out. We are focused on returning to a balanced, tribal centered lifestyle where we work together to provide a healthy self sufficent lifestyle based on the principles of ascension of the soul. Part of that is not putting toxic dense materials into ou energetic fields but finding other ways of healing and maintaing our natural state of health. Our community is open to everyone, including single parents and the elderly. I'm sure I will be well supported and nourished through my third pregnancy and child raising years <3 I am truly blessed <3
