Attachment believes in a woman's ability to have a safe, natural
pregnancy and childbirth. A woman should be presented with all the
necessary information, so she can make informed decisions. We also

concentrate on treating the whole illness; the whole person and not

believe that every family can homeschool at least part-time, if not
full-time. Homeschool is a great way to see what your children are
learning, rather than depending on subjective testing and 'average'

subjects over and over. It is also a great way to integrate
spirituality into your family unit.
Family Planning and Ecological Breastfeeding are two great and drug
free ways to space children or avoid conception. Taking control of
their fertility is empowering for many women and families. It is quite
possible and easy to avoid conception without using potentially harmful
hormonal drugs or medical devices. Keep in mind though that natural
family planning does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.
