    Rachel,

    Yes! I would appreciate any suggestions that you have. About anything! I have kept up with your blog for a while and am interested in a lot of your ideas. Like cloth diapering, for example. I will have to go back and look at those posts. I am also going to try for as natural of a birth as possible. I plan to take a bradley class. But I would love any book suggestions… I’m trying to gather as much info as possible right now!
