So, it costs $58.00 to mail a 36 lb. box from Cola, SC to STJ Connections
via USPS priority mail. It got there in 3 days. It costs $161.00 to mail a 33 lb. box
priority mail from PostNet (formerly the Mail Center) from STJ to Cola, SC.
I am still trying to undertand why the triple charge to mail it back. We opted for
parcel post which was $52.00, mailed it back from STJ on 8/4 and are still
waiting for it to arrive. Just a heads up if anyone takes this route.
Guess we should have taken it directly to Cruz Bay USPS and mailed it out.
Yes sooooo much cheaper to mail it directly from the PO. Just a heads up
it takes 8-12 weeks for a package to arrive on STJ when mailed from the
States via Parcel Post but have no idea how long it takes to arrive when
mailed from this end.
Let's see. The Mail Center has to accept responsibility for your box,
pay someone to haul it to town, find a parking spot, mail it for you,
and keep adequate records and receipts. And the last time I checked,
they were not a non-profit organization. And yes, the person who
replied is correct, to a degree: Parcel Post takes four to six weeks
coming to St. John, not eight to twelve weeks. But, let me not be petty.

St. John's with Babies
I will be traveling to St. John's in Dec. with my 2 kids (1 year and 2 1/2 years). My very nice brother is renting a house for the whole family but I am feeling very anxious about what we will need to bring and what we should buy. The only other place we've been to was the Bitter End in the BVI and there were no easily accessible stores. With new airline surcharges for bringing anything, we need to pack lightly. So here are my questions: 1)Does St. John's have grocery store with diapers, Enfamil, etc. 2)Will there be a place to buy/rent cheap sand toys, beach umbrella/shelter.
Hi Katy, this is the St Johns Antigua board - you need to post your question on the US Virgin Islands St John board

Is this fucking rain finally going away? Or, as Bronc said, "At what point does The Westin just wash into the bay?"

Being a Midwife in St Thomas
September 04, 2010 12:34PM
Registered: 11 days ago
Wow I've finally found a message board where posts are still in date! Thank you!
Anyway... my question is this...
I am relocating to St Thomas as I have family already living there, and Im currently
studying a Degree in Midwifery in the UK. I would love to carry on my dream of being
a Midwife in St Thomas but know that it's going to be very hard to persue this as my
UK qualification wont do...so what do I need to do once Im in St Thomas to start my
journey to becoming a Certified Professional Midwife? I want to specialise in Homebirths
(even birth centre), antenatal classes, and newborn care...possibly with adolescent parents to be.
Could someone give me some valid info that I need, as much info as possible please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your time is much appreciated : )
I can not wait to relocate(wont be for 5 yrs ish yet) but dont want anything to get in the way
of having my dream career and caring for pregnant mums and thier newborns.
