About Me

Hey everyone! I’m Rachel. I’m a registered occupational therapist, currently a stay at home Mum to three children ages 6, 4, and 2 years and married to a man named Matt. We live in Christchurch, New Zealand.


Some might call me a ‘crunchy’ Mum with my love of empowered home birth, baby led weaning, baby wearing and cloth nappying. I’m not so much a fan of ‘labels’ but those are just some of the things I’ve chosen in my mothering journey so far that resonate with my way of thinking. I haven’t *quite* branched into selling essential oils yet though #justsaying

My blog has been a way for me to record and share how I use my knowledge as an occupational therapist in my everyday mothering. I’ve been blogging for two years now, as often as I can (which isn’t very often actually) whilst juggling mum-life and volunteer roles for my Playcentre and Toy LIbrary.

I’m passionate about down to earth parenting, learning through play, mamas’ mental health, and finding joy.

In 2019 I will be launching an e-course to help parents navigate the process of reducing their kids’ screen time. You can find out more and sign up for that here, if it’s something that you think might benefit your family.

Much aroha, Rach.
