NavigatingParenthood.com shares classes, services, personal stories, and helpful info for expecting, new, and new again parents with littles under age 8 who care about the Earth and gentle parenting practices. Our content covers birth & postpartum, family home design, family travel, and wellness in a casual online magazine meets blog format.
At Navigating Parenthood, we don’t want another mom to suffer in silence with perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, not sure what is happening to her or why. Or to struggle with the changes to her body (both internal and external). We want to help parents understand their little one, create deeper relationships with their family members, and to foster a bond with their baby/child.
There are enough families in the “I wish I knew this when…” club. let’s close admission. You deserve better!
We’re thrilled to help navigate this thing called parenthood.
