A lot of you know me as a baby sleep expert. But what you might not know is that I don’t do this work to help babies sleep. Nope, I created Mommywise to help parents like you feel better;
- To help you feel more confident
- To reconnect with yourself and your partner
- To inspire you to find better balance in all aspects of your life
- To make Parentdom an easier, happier place to live
- To help you live the life you really want, and role model that for your kid
I believe that if parents everywhere had better balance, felt more connected and happier, it would have a huge ripple effect around the world. This is why I do my work. I want you to be happy. I want you to take good care of yourself, and your relationships. I want you to stretch and dream about what you truly want for yourself and your family, so that you can be the person, parent, partner and friend you really want to be! A better world starts with you. If you’re healthy, if you’re happy, if you and your partner love up on each other and have more FUN, it will have a huge impact on your kids, and you can all bring that out into the world. So GO, dream, live, laugh, play, and have FUN with this life. It’s not a dress rehearsal! Xo
Hi, I’m Natalie, founder of Mommywise. I’m a Brooklyn mom of two (now) teenagers, PPD survivor, still humbled by the early years of parenting. I started this blog in 2004 as a way to help other parents who felt as dark and lonely as I felt to feel less shame, normalize the feelings of not loving parenthood, and raise awareness about postpartum mood disorders. I’m passionately committed to helping new parents feel more joy, offering sustainable employment for women and mothers, and contributing to positive change in the world.
