We’re Hannah and Kelty - twins, mothers and works in progress. Upbringing empowers us all to engage bravely with the hardest aspects of parenting to create profound, positive change in ourselves, our families and the world.

Through conversations, inspiration and empowerment, we’ll build intention, elevate skills, and align our values so we don’t undermine the very qualities we hope to inspire in our children. When we work to accept their feelings, respect their bodies, and honor their will, we make the dream possible. When we choose trust over fear, connection over control and progress over perfection, we’re not just raising our kids— we’re raising ourselves. Let’s show up and grow up!

Radical, fearless, empathetic parenthood ❤️

Hannah and Kelty have such a gift for breaking down dense academic research about brains, parenting, all the things (you name it they’ve read it) and making it real, realistic and, most importantly, feel like something you can actually DO. Like you’re actually going to be okay. Not in a “cheers pass the wine you go girl” kind of way, but better yet, by empathizing with their listeners about their struggles and triumphs in much same way they encourage us to do with our kids. Show, not tell. All the way. LOVE THEM LOVE THIS PODCAST! 🌈

I’m not alone!

As a mother who is trying to put in the work to be a better person, mom, family member and wife, this podcast makes me feel a little more equipped and confident. They have excellent insights and thoughtful conversations with guests. I don’t know about the rest of you but I didn’t have the best role models and was terrified of repeating their mistakes or messing up my kid in brand new ways. This podcast takes some of the pressure off (you’re still gonna make mistakes) but it’s ok, you’re trying and hey, we’re all in this journey together.

Bringing the Upbringing to Boston

Hannah and Kelty are high school friends of my husband. Though we now live in Boston, I heard about Upbringing from some Oregon friends last summer, when my son was 3 months old. I didn't really think much of it at the time, since newborns are barely conscious and don't need much besides milk, sleep, and hygiene... however, fast forward to this past January, when my son was 8 months old and still not sleeping through the night and I felt myself going slowly insane from my friends' and family's feedback: "He's STILL not sleeping through?" "But he's such a good eater!" "What is WITH him?" I remembered about Upbringing and started to listen... and it completely changed my outlook on my son and on parenting in general! The Empowerments were (and are) what especially resonated with me; at that moment in time, the "We Meet Our Kids Where They Are" empowerment in particular saved me. I began to appreciate my son for the unique individual that he is, with his own needs and his own timeline; I began to truly RESPECT him as a person rather than as an inhibitor of my own sleep/daily routines; and I began to TRUST my gut feelings about parenting decisions. Fast forward to now, where you can find my 14 month old is happy and healthy (AND sleeping through the night, without any other intervention from me), and where you can find me as a happier and more relaxed parent who still listens to Hannah and Kelty's every word. I am so grateful!
