Working Together to Create Your Mama Tool-Kit

Hi Mama!

From before we even become parents our bodies and minds go through a lot, due to both hormonal and life changes, and we can feel overwhelmed by what we're experiencing. And then the baby arrives and we realize, it's only just begun. Have you been there?

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I spent many years working with families on best practices in parenting. Then I had my own kids, a set of boy/girl twins, and was in the depths of it all myself. Just two months after my kids were born I was introduced to essential oils and they ROCKED my world!! I remember wishing I'd had them as a tool to use with my clients because they would have made such an amazing difference for so many of the families I'd worked with. I can't go back in time, but I can make sure that the parents I work with in the future (plus my friends and those mamas I meet during the course of ....life) have access to the information and tools I've come to rely on so heavily these past years.

I'm so grateful for your time in filling out this survey as your answers will help guide me as I create "Your Mama Tool-Kit: a guide to behavior modifications and essential oils for better parenting," which will combine behavioral changes, for the child and parent both, as well as the use of essential oils to make a positive impact in your mama life. As a thank you for taking part in my survey, you'll receive a copy of my e-book for FREE! Yep, I appreciate you that much! So be sure to share a good email address below and know that I'll be in touch. 

I'm so looking forward to reading your experiences and hope we can connect again in the future!

Hugs to you, Mama!
