Hey everyone! I’m Kristi, and I’m a 34yo, unschooling Mama, a Doula & Birthkeeper, and a Licensed Independent Minister! I’m passionate about God’s Word, health and diet, marriage, UP/UC (Unassisted pregnancy and childbirth/Freebirth), Spirit-led parenting, healing naturally/self-care, and writing about everything I love! I became a Christian when I was 15 years old and due to self-reflection, began devoting my life to learning and growing ever since, receiving additional training in trauma, domestic violence, and childhood sexual abuse as a result. My husband and I have been married for 16 years and now have 7 beautiful children together, ages dd14, dd12, ds10, dd7, dd5, ds3, and ds1yo! Our first two children were hospital births and from those experiences, we felt led to the decision to begin having homebirths without the presence of a medical attendant. We would eventually go on to have 5 such pregnancies and births, where I did my own prenatal care and birthed at home without a doctor or midwife present. You can read about Our Freebirthing Journey, if you like. I love learning from and ministering to women in our pursuit of Christ; supporting marriages, whether it be to maintain a stable and secure connection and line of communication or for the struggling couples as well; and I love helping families in being confident, safe, and healthy in their birthing journey.
My desire in creating this blog was to create a safe environment for all women to be encouraged to do their research to become educated and familiar about their health and their own bodies, about alternative self care and treatment options, about preventative care, and about pregnancy and birth free from the ideology that it is a medical event. My desire is that this blog becomes a helpful tool in each woman’s personal journey through pregnancy and childbirth.
I’m in the process of getting some ducks in order so as to begin providing my services beyond the maintenance of this website, however I am excitedly waiting for the day I can offer more. I hope you’ll all stick around and maybe I’ll have the privilege of serving YOU.
