- About Jane-Ellen
- North Bend, Washington
- Natural parenting, hiking, camping, road tripping, reading, scrapbooking and photography when I can find the time, family, good nonprofit work, running, kayaking.
- I am an older mommy who upon getting pregnant years ago discovered a deep well of maternal intuition that seemed to run counter to what was popular. I found Mothering reinforced and supported my own deep knowing and haven't stopped reading it since. My first "baby" is 19 and just started college my other "baby" is a senior in high school. They were both born naturally, nursed (and tandem for part of the time) into toddlerhood and we did the family bed until they shared a bed together through preschool. They are both bright, well adjusted wonderful children. We worked hard for them to have a real childhood and all the development that entails rather than forcing independence and adulthood on them prematurely.
