Nature's Mothers Blog

Childbirth, Parenting and Other Passions

About May 30, 2010


During the birth of my first (now 5) I was introduced to the idea of home births and natural, active birth, breastfeeding and Janet Balaskas book on Active Birth became my bible. My mum had awful birth and breastfeeding experiences and the idea that I could do it differently was very appealing. I qualified as a massage therapist in the months following my daughters birth and as a yoga teacher at the beginning of 2012.

I started Nature’s Mother almost 5 years ago (inspired by my birth experience) – at first I put together ‘natural pregnancy kits’ comprising of raspberry leaf tea, perineum massage oil, chamomile tea, arnica, the active birth book and more, but since this sadly didn’t take off I began selling other things and amber necklaces have proved the most successful – and so this is mainly what I sell now.  I am passionate about natural birth, breastfeeding, and living naturally and sustainably and I now have 3 little ones to keep me out of mischief.

My dream is to be more active in supporting women through pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and beyond, but all in good time.  I also work part time on Holifield farm where I also live, organising events, helping out in the day centre and doing general office jobs, while hubby does his share of the childcare. I would ideally like to do doula, midwifery, and yoga and massage for pregnancy qualifications!

    Hi there, your blog is wonderful and v. imspirng!
    I was just looking at the photos and I now recognise you from the Zelda school cream tea! We came down from Barnstaple to visit for the day and remember seeing you there,
    anyway – what a coincidence!
    Take care

    Hi Sharon.

    Thank you for paying me a visit at Driftwood Ramblings blogspot. I had to pop on over and take a peek at your site.

    It’s awesome what you’ve set out to achieve and I wish you everything of the best! Enjoy every single moment of your little girls’ journey through life. Time passes all too quickly. My own daughter is turning 25 next week – and I didn’t ever wish a single second of her childhood away, yet it passed in a flash.

    My mosaic mirror is up on my blog, BTW 😉

    Have a super day and keep doing what you’re doing to add value to this planet of ours. We need a lot more young folk like you to set an example.

    Big hug,

    Des.
