I've aways been more yin by nature
(calm, patient, inward, reflective)
I've always been a nurturer
As a child, if I crossed paths with an animal or person in need of love, support or a lift, I happily landed there to offer care.
I've always held an innate love and awe for babies and expectant mothers.
The definition of Divine.
And now, a blessed Mother myself,
(my babies now 10 & 14 years old ;)
my passion is to share mothering support, sistership and care with YOU on your Mothering journey.
