Hi moms and moms-to-be (and dads?)!
Welcome to this blog.
I love being a mother! I try to be a compassionate and gentle mother, although I have to admit that patience is something that doesn’t always come naturally for me. On my personal parenting journey, homebirthing, breastfeeding, and positive discipline have turned out to be important. In my spare time (yes, I still have some!) I love sewing, experimenting with cooking, and travel.
I am passionate (and ever so slightly nerdy) about all topics related to the female body, trying to conceive, pregnancy, and birth.
Everyone’s road to motherhood is different, and we all face our own obstacles. In this blog, I will try to provide as much information on the topic of getting pregnant, fertility and fertility problems as possible, to hopefully make the journey a bit more easy to navigate through, for everyone trying to conceive and those for whom making a baby didn’t turn out to be as simple as they hoped.
Is there any subject you would like to see covered, but isn’t yet? Do you have any questions or suggestions? Please feel free to email me!
