About Us

Throughout my journey of pregnancy, labour and parenting, I’ve chosen the less travelled path of doing things more naturally. We have all fallen into patterns from societies conditioning and expectations, but I realised there was often another way of doing things. Tune in to hear me share what I’ve learnt on being guided by intuition and living more in alignment with nature.

Latest Episodes

Natural Health (Part 3)

In this final episode of the natural health series I delve into the natural medicines that I’ve found helpful to support myself and my family when sick - high dosage vitamin C, elderberry, homeopathy, rongoā, traditional chinese medicine, breast milk, skin on skin etc. I also discuss fever and why it’s best to let it run rather than suppress it, along with a basic step by step guide of how to best nurse a sick child. To finish I share our experience of when Fern had the common childhood illness pertussis (whooping cough) and how we got through it.

Natural Health (Part 2)

In part two I share about the importance of prevention when it comes to health. This episode contains a lot of information on how the diet you feed your kid/s for the first few years of their lives has a MASSIVE impact on their health, both now and as adults. I also touch on the after effects of giving your child synthetic medicines, including vaccines. I end with sharing my own personal reasons for not vaccinating my daughter from the research I’ve done.

Natural Health (Part 2)

Natural Health (Part 1)

I wanted to share my knowledge on what I’ve learnt about helping to maintain your baby or child’s health in a natural way. I believe that modern medicine should be a last resort or just for use in emergencies. But the rest of the time, our extraordinary bodies are very much capable of healing themselves, if we simply allow them to. In part one I share how I came to view health in this way, and talk about why mindset is so important when it comes to natural health.

Lessons from Nature

Life has changed significantly since my last episode, with Covid19 having a huge effect worldwide. Here in Aotearoa we’ve been in full lockdown for almost a month now. So I wanted to share an update on what that’s been like for us, and also finish by telling an unexpected story.

Life-changing parenting through RIE

RIE is an educaring approach based on respect, that was brought about by a wonderful woman called Magda Gerber. It has completely changed the way I interact with Fern and has resulted in our relationship flourishing and our days flowing much more slowly and easily. Some of the principles of RIE I talk about are communicating openly and honestly, acknowledging her emotions and letting them be expressed, importance of care moments and filling up your child’s cup, independent and uninterrupted play time, natural development of movement, allowing problem solving and so much more!

Life Update and Minimalist Baby Items

Did you know you have a choice?

I discovered throughout my pregnancy and birth that when it came to making decisions, there was often more than one option or side to the story. It was really important to me to make an informed decision, as it was my child’s health and well-being at stake. So I want to share with you what I learnt along the way.

The Mysteries of Elimination Communication Explained

Babies instinctually resist soiling themselves, their sleep space and their caregivers right from birth. Amazing right? However it seems to be something that not many of us are aware of. Elimination communication (EC) means tuning in with your baby’s signals and timings to offer them opportunities to go toilet. It has SO many benefits which I share on this episode along with the different journey’s my friend Rike and I went on with EC.
