I know that professionally speaking bios are meant to be written in the third person, but this isn’t that kind of blog, and I’m not that kind of person.
This blog is real, messy at times in reflection of real life. I’m not a professional writer, but I do have a love of sharing stories and knowledge. I enjoy helping to support others, be it at the birth of their child, or helping a local business.
I enjoy nature walks, connecting with others, drawing, painting, and home DIY projects. I also love listening to Slipknot and playing the odd pc or video game when I’m not busy chasing after my 3 kiddos and/or dreaming up my next endeavor.
I value equality, evidence based care, fairness, empathy, understanding and connection. Every post on this blog is carefully considered again and again to meet the need for inclusion. This blog is intended to speak to all parents regardless of race sexual orientation, gender etc. I don’t pretend to represent anyone but myself, but I do intend to welcome more than just my own narrative as a birth worker and parent. I do my best to be aware of my biases, and I fully accept my responsibility to keep learning ad caring about other peoples perspectives.
I am many things, a dreamer, a parent, a partner, a birth and postpartum doula, a personal support worker, and an encourager of all things that lead to empathy, connection, understanding, and self acceptance. In no particular order…
Now that you know a little more about me, welcome to my unconventional little blog, I hope you’ll stay awhile and check it out. Maybe even share it with someone? Either way, thanks for your support.
