Which general topics are you most interested in learning about?

I began the journey towards natural and attachment parenting philosophies through a process of homebirth and breastfeeding. I found myself drawn towards ideas that made sense but were traditional cultural practices such as babywearing and EC. This led me to concepts like baby-led approach to solids/weaning and a child-led approach to play and learning. My experiences as a mother (and a teacher!) shifted my thinking about education and moved me towards home/unschooling. Passion for birth morphed into desire to support families making what seem like alternative choices in today's society. I am interested in pretty much any topic about which parents on this path might have questions or stories to share.

Do you have any interests or skills (i.e.- knitting, sewing, fermenting foods, gardening) you would like to share with the group?

When is the best time for you to attend meetings (weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays, morning, afternoon, evening)?

Most days, most times.


Raising my almost 2 year old daughter with my husband and growing baby #2. My homebirth inspired a new way of thinking about living and learning. I am a teacher at heart (and historically by profession). I love hearing stories and wisdom from others!
