Happy cup evangelism story!

I have had my little girl, and as you all predicted was NOT in the mood to be inserting my cup for a while after the delivery! Ouch! But I am better now, and when I went to my 6 week post-partum check I thought I would share the joy - of cups that is! My OBGYN was quite interested and had heard about cups before but didn't know anyone who used them. He said he believed they were not available in Australia (true). I explained that I got mine online, and that it was the best thing since sliced bread! He seemed impressed by my enthusiasm and said he would look into it.

I figure if the OBGYN knows about cups and can recommend them, that is a start towards raising cup awareness, although it is sad there is nowhere in Australia to buy them. :(
