Hi all,
I am making a birthday present for Gloria Lemay (if you are a pregnant woman, or interested in safe natural pregnancy/homebirth/women's health/breastfeeding and don't know her you should!!), and am hoping you will all help me, I need a list of words describing Homebirth/ natural birth, single words and two word phrases.

I have started a list off of the top of my head, but need many many more. Since I have not been blessed with a homebirth of my own ( but if I was to ever be gifted with another child, I wouldn't do it any other way!!) I am sure there are words I won't even think of.

I will include words from other languages, and would love to, if you submit those please make sure to spell them properly with proper punctuation, and translate for me! ( include what language it is in too please!)

Please forward this to anyone!! ( I really mean anyone! - if you are on lists, forums, blogging circles, anything! ) you know who might have suggestions, I will weed out duplicates, and start the project tomorrow. ( I know short notice huh?!!) - The idea came to me in a dream last night, and I really want to make it happen.

My email is or simply send it to me through facebook or LJ

If I can get the list, this will be a beautiful token of all of our love and admiration for this amazing woman. Please help me. Even if all you can come up with is 10 words, you may have some no one else has come up with, and your voice will be included in this message.

(if you want your name added to the birthday wishes, please include how you would like to me noted, via screenname, real name, initials, ... )

Thank you,

Blessings to all,


please excuse the cross posting everyone, I am desperately trying to do this on a time crunch.
