Birth Edicational Resources

Birth is a pivotal experience in our lives, and I am dedicated to empowering women with comprehensive knowledge about the birth process. Our resources aim to provide you with the education needed to make informed decisions and explore the diverse options available today.

Through detailed information and thoughtful guidance, we help you understand the different aspects of birth and the choices that can impact your experience. Our goal is to support you in feeling confident and well-prepared as you approach this significant moment in your life.


Homesteading means different things to different people, depending on individual circumstances and stages in their journey. Even if you’re in an urban setting, starting to homestead can begin with educating yourself and gradually incorporating practices into your life.

In our own homesteading journey, we make the most of our small rural home by focusing on a large garden, food preservation, and homeschooling. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to deepen your homesteading practices, our resources and experiences aim to inspire and support you in embracing a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
