SO so belated, but . . .

I am a hippie homebirther; I pushed out a surprise posterior baby in the comfort of my own bed with a CNM in attendance. However, more than anything, I'm a believer in the midwifery model of care. The midwifery model DEPENDS on the ability of midwives to send some women to the hospital because they've risked out of midwifery care. The freebirth community exists in part because some women have had really traumatic hospital experiences. This is why I believe birth needs to be improved across the board, in all settings. Unassisted childbirth is damned scary. Traumatic childbirth is scary. All women deserve good care.

Try reddit's /r/babybumps. It was pretty awesome during my pregnancy. Also, don't stress about the new moms groups! I was really worried it would be like high school but actually everyone at new mom's groups are super welcoming because WE'RE ALL IN THIS [EXHAUSTED] SHIT TOGETHER!

The best part is that we don't even need to make it up! McCaffrey comes right out and says it: http://books.google.com/books?id=WsEJw5pBMFwC&...

Ah, I think I was in ANOTHER Pern rip-off that almost got sued. (The girl in charge was named Quarla? That's all I remember, pretty much.) I love the fact that there were multiple Pern rip-off clubs that almost got sued.

Somehow I didn't get into Sailor Moon until grad school which is clearly a tragedy.

There's no righteous justice like the righteous justice of 14 year old girls.

Hey I was too! That almost went in this but then it didn't fit with the general gist. Which one?

Yes oh god, I think it was somewhere around Masterharper where I realized that the rape stuff is kind of weird?
