Hello, thanks for stopping by Naturally Healthy Parenting!
I’m Charlene, a 25-year-old British woman living in the North West of England (between Liverpool & Manchester).
In all honesty, I’m a bit new to this blogging lark, but I’m going to try and document what myself and my family get up to, along with some tips and advice articles along the way (with the help from other people).
I’m a northern girl through and through, originally from Leeds but after attending university in Liverpool 6 years ago (how time flies) I met my partner Matt and decided to call Leigh my home, he’s from Manchester and I just couldn’t come too far away from my beloved Liverpool.
I work in marketing for a well-known retail company in Liverpool and my partner Matt is an IT consultant for the same company (coincidental I promise).
Together, we have a 6-month-old daughter called Lily-Rose, who although unexpected is the greatest thing to ever happen to us. I was never one for children but Lilly-Rose has utterly changed my life and I can’t believe how incredible being a mother is.
I have always been into my health and nutrition and since becoming pregnant, I started to take this more seriously and was very aware of the food & drink I was putting into my body and ultimately feeding my unborn baby.
Naturally Healthy Parenting was created during my pregnancy as I not only wanted to document the journey of pregnancy and birth but also give other expectant mothers some guidance on how to become naturally healthy. I never claim to be perfect and I do think life is all about balance (I still love a curry and chocolate cake) but for me, this was all about monitoring the hidden ingredients sugars and additives which are just not needed.
Since giving birth to Lilly-Rose, I have continued to keep living a naturally healthy lifestyle for not only my baby but for myself and Matt.
Naturally Healthy Parenting will be so much more than a health food blog for families, it will feature our tips and tricks, advice for new parents and families and a glance into our hectic lives.
I must also mention we have a rough collie called Baz who is nearly a year old, I’ll regularly post some pictures of us all up on the site so you can see what we’re up to.
