Natureal Mom is an online destination for the woman who strives to make informed decisions, trust her instincts, advocate for her family’s health and well-being and live authentically without giving up her sense of beauty and style. Here you will find information about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, non-toxic and sustainable living, holistic health and wellness, nourishing recipes, beauty, style, and more. Head over to the blog for my personal musings on motherhood and life.
After a challenging birth and overcoming many breastfeeding obstacles, I became a Birth Doula, Lactation and Childbirth Educator to help support other women and families. Shortly after, I stepped off the corporate ladder as a marketing executive to fully pursue this path and spend more time with my family.
While I generally avoid labels, our family practices tenants of Attachment and Natural Parenting which are common themes in my posts. The essence of Attachment Parenting is about forming and nurturing strong connections between parents and children by treating them with kindness, respect and dignity, meeting and responding to their needs, and modeling in our interactions with them the way we would like them to interact with others. Natural Parenting is also based on a desire to live and parent responsively and consciously. While no two families who practice Natural Parenting may define it the same way, there are several principles that are widely agreed to be part of this lifestyle including Ecological Responsibility and Love of Nature, Holistic Health Practices and Natural Learning.
Being a conscious parent and individual is about a commitment to the never-ending journey of growth, truth, presence and intention. It is knowing in our hearts that every thought and action, big or small, has an effect beyond the immediate and considering that in our daily interactions and when making our decisions for ourselves, our families and our communities. I am by no means a purist and am perfectly imperfect, but strive to live an authentic and mindful life.
