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,
Nice to meet you!!! I know I just loved Mothering magazine and now I love it here too. It's a great community full of advice and new perspectives on life. Have fun exploring the site and I 'll see you around!!!!!
Hi and Welcome to Mothering!!!
We miss the Magazine too. :( It was a sad day when it stopped publishing.
We're glad you found us!!
Adina mama to B 4/06 and E 8/13/12 (on her due date!)
