Baby Registry Class

One of the first things most families start researching is the THINGS they need to buy for baby.  Some of these things are major investments!   The marketplace is constantly changing with product recalls, product bans and upgrades in safety, it's way too much information for a consumer to keep up on.

So Ashley and I, are your experts!  We up-to-date on product efficacy and safety as well as a deep understanding of intuitive cultural parenting, postpartum recovery and infant development.

We offer a FREE baby registry class to pass on our expertise and help you to skip stuff that you really don't need, understand which products you do need (and brands to avoid) as well as the support that makes pregnancy, birth and motherhood enjoyable, positive experiences.

Hi, I'm Stefanie
For fifteen years, my deepest desire was to be a mother.  After a miraculous pregnancy I had a beautiful homebirth.  Then, I experienced trauma due to breastfeeding problems.  Navigating breastfeeding issues caused undiagnosed anxiety and resulted in self-isolation. 

I went on to have five more miracle babies and one angel baby.  I loved the baby and toddler years. However, my mental and emotional state, at that time, was dark. As my family grew and the daily pressures increased, I reached a "boiling point" and knew that something had to change.

I started seeking the help I needed and implementing changes that brought me from complete overwhelm and frustration to experiencing joy and peace as my new normal.

I know that a confident, joyful and peaceful mother experience is available to you.  I'd love to help you make sure you experience it.  If we can start you off on the right foot in pregnancy: how much easier will it be for you and the generations to come?
