Your.Mama.Tribe

Natural Parenting Group

I started this group in search of my own tribe. Going into parenting as a first-time mama, I read a lot of books and joined parenting groups which began to shape my views and what to expect with a newborn. The moment my first daughter was born, everything went out of the window when I realised that what I'd read about in the books simply did not apply to her - she was not a "textbook baby". 

I was told not to carry my baby too much, for fear of spoiling her. But the only way she would calm down was when she was laying on my chest, or had my boob in her mouth. I was convinced that I should sleep-train, but despite hiring a sleep consultant, the whole episode was a complete disaster, ending in her "failing" to be sleep-trained and traumatising both of us. I decided right then, after 2.5 horrific weeks, that I would never put her (and any of my other children) through that ever again. 

As I went deeper into motherhood, I began to tune into my intuition, instead of what others/books told me about what was the norm. And I realised that what felt right for me tended to veer from what the other parents in groups I was in were advocating. It's not that they were wrong - I believe that every parent only wants the best for their children. I simply had a different way that I wanted to parent. 

So I set out to find my own tribe.

 

I don't have the exact words to describe us, but I would say that we seek to parent as nature intended - through loving, secure attachment; respectful parenting that embraces all feelings; supporting natural biological sleep, breastfeeding and more. If this is you, we would love you to be a part of our tribe.
