I also write about my personal journey and as a wife, Marketing Exec-turned-Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Lactation Educator/Counselor, and Natural-Attachment-Conscious Parent.
While I generally avoid labels, 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 being committed 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 when making our decisions for ourselves, our families and our communities.
I am by no means a purist, but strive to make informed decisions, trust my instincts, advocate for my family’s health and well-being and live authentically by doing what comes naturally and works for us. As a newer mama I don’t have all of the answers or pretend to – I learn as I go and share things that inspire me along the way.
Natureal Mom is a work in progress and your support means so much to me! This is a safe, non-judgmental environment and I invite you to join the conversation by leaving comments and if you enjoy the site, to please share it with someone you love!
