About Me

Hey, I’m Rachel. I’m a NZ trained occupational therapist who is currently a SAHM to three children who are aged 5, 4, and 1 year. I’ve been married for 8 years to a wonderful man named Matt. We call ourselves Christians; what this means in our everyday lives is that we try to love God and love others just as Jesus did.


I started this blog as a way for me to record and share how I use my knowledge as an occupational therapist in my everyday mothering. Some things you may find interesting or helpful; whether you’re a fellow OT, parent, or both!

I’m passionate about down to earth parenting, learning through play, mamas’ mental health, finding joy, raising kids on real food (or trying to), baby wearing, and eco-living.

I hope we can connect through the world of blogging, if you flick me a message I’d love to hear from you!

P.S. If you’d like to read more about what an occupational therapist does in practice, you could check out my blog post about it here.

P.P.S. Please note, I do not currently hold registration as an occupational therapist. This blog is purely my own reflection on my parenting journey through an OT lens. If you seek professional opinion please contact a registered OT within your local region.
