“I am so glad I became the mother I am today, rather than the mother I intended to be.” -Anonymous
I am a Breastfeeding, Bed-sharing, Babywearing, gentle parent to a rainbow princess and her sweet sidekick. A certified Breastfeeding Counselor, wife to a supportive and caring husband & father, and a science professional by trade turned Stay-At-Home-Mom living in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and spent seven years in the vaccines industry. I enjoy a good book, a great meal, and days spent in the sunshine.
My journey to motherhood was tumultuous but I feel it has given me a greater appreciation for the miraculous transformation motherhood is. I have fallen in love. Motherhood has awoken my senses; has shown me a world that I was blinded to before. And this new world was oh so beautiful. The birth of my daughters has filled the hole in my heart that pregnancy loss had left and some days I feel that I can not hold one more ounce of love for fear of bursting. I have become fascinated and mesmerized by pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, mother-infant bonding and so much more. I feel the process of creating and sustaining life is the closest thing to a miracle we can experience here on earth. I find so much beauty in it all…I can only describe the feeling as hearing a song that moves you to tears for the first time but never tiring of it.
Motherhood has also opened up my eyes to how far away our society has come from parenting the way we were designed and intended to and If I can inspire just one new mom to follow her instincts and tune out the noise of mis-guided advice and societal “norms” of today, I will feel like a success. This is a place where I can channel some of my passion and discuss my parenting perspective openly. I hope you enjoy reading!
