This list is for both men and women who have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, autoimmune disorders, or other immune system medical issues--or their partners--who are parents, pregnant, trying to conceive, or who are thinking about parenthood.
Our focus here is on natural childbirth and childrearing, alternative medicine, and scent-free/chemical-free living. We are here for parents, and potential parents, who are disabled.
Examples of topics we would love to see:
Making a (backup or primary) hospital birth plan that takes my MCS into account.
My teenager's friends come to the house wearing fabric softener, what can I do?
Where do I find baby shampoo without petrochemicals?
Slings and baby carriers to use from a wheelchair.
Making my child's school accessible to me for parent-teacher conferences.
If you are not yourself disabled or you are interested in these health issues more generally, you may want to join the larger Immune list at http://www.immuneweb.org/lists/immune.html.
If you are the spouse or parent of a person disabled with Immune health problems, you might be interested in an adjunct list, Immune-Partners at http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/immune-partners/.
