Hi I'm Jacqui from Nelson, New Zealand.  I have a 19 yr old son, and was introduced to Mothering mags back when pregnant. I was searching the net for some info on cloth for Toilet Paper when I discovered Mothering exists in digital format, and that sadly the mag has stopped being published.

Mothering was my friend 20 years ago when I decided not to vaccinate, and helped me decide to be a baby wearing, co sleeping, extended breast feeding, cloth menstrual pad, soap making, organic paleo eating parent!

Since then I have homeschooled my son for 2 yrs when the local school didint fit our philosophy, and currently unschool my 9 yr old daughter.

I am now married ( I was a single parent for 16 years) and have moved on to a 5 acre block of land. We have a pond, chooks, ducks, sheep and growing an orchard and huge veg garden.

I'll be connecting here re Education, Frugal Living, Paleo, disability ( my son has Duchenne MD), nutrition ( we have a nutrition business), bottling, preserving , cloth anything etc. I'd welcome connecting with families who want to travel to NZ too, as we are WWOOF and Helpx hosts.

I teach Yoga from home and am a physical therapist and craniosacral therapist.


Looking forward to connecting here with you,


Jacqui Sinclair
