    Keeping Kids Safe, Not Bubble-Wrapped

    Keeping Kids Safe, Not Bubble-Wrapped

    Keeping our little ones safe and staying on top of all the things they can get into can feel like a daunting task!

    In this episode I'm chatting with Parachute Canada's President, Pamela Fuselli to learn about how we can help keep our kids safe, but not bubble-wrapped!

    It's important that kids have the freedom to explore and learn through things like risky play, or walking to school, or playing with certain toys... But what are the dangers and how can we keep them safe while also letting them explore and learn? There's a balance, and we're diving into it!

    Mabel's Birth Story

    Mabel's Birth Story

    Mabel was my low-intervention/zero-medication birth. It was a wild ride but I was PREPARED.

    It's important to note that this labour (as well as my other two) were considered "normal" and "healthy" labours. There was never any concern over the baby's wellbeing or my own in these situations, which is a big reason why I am able to reflect back on those experiences with awe and amazement.

    Sadly, this is not the case for everyone. Your right to feel seen, heard and valued during your birth experience can sometimes be pushed aside. This is not right by any means, but it does mean that you should prepare yourself so you'll be equipped to make informed decisions and be able to advocate for yourself if necessary. This is what I offer in my prenatal classes, offered virtually and in-person.
