This Yahoo group is set up in association with Laura Shanley's unassisted childbirth website, Bornfree! Please join us and share your thoughts, comments and questions on this fascinating and controversial subject! While our primary focus is on unassisted childbirth (also known as UC, freebirth, freebirthing, unassisted homebirth, unhindered birth, and autonomous birth), you are welcome to discuss other topics as well, as long as the discussions remain peaceful, respectful and positive at all times. Please mark these discussions as OT.
No flaming, bashing or ranting about religion or abortion will be allowed on this group. Most of our members and moderators practice and encourage attachment parenting, long-term breastfeeding and co-sleeping. Many of us do not believe in vaccinating our children. Circumcision is roundly condemned by nearly all of our members and moderators. Those choosing to post pro-circumcision comments (regardless of their religious beliefs) should expect to be quickly - and perhaps passionately - educated about this barbaric practice.
