Natural Parenting Blog Party at The Peaceful Housewife

For two weeks, between the 15th and the 30th, The Peaceful Housewife is hosting a Natural Parenting Blog Party, as a way to get to know each other better and to get to know some new blogs at the same time. There are some gems on the list already, and it's not too late to hop on! Again, April proves to be a very busy and exciting month (spring is in the air?).

The Peaceful Housewife

She asks some questions for bloggers to answer for the new visitors, but they are mostly of a personal nature and this is not really a personal blog. Although I do draw from personal experience and share the occasional anecdote about my little nature loving child.
For you first time visitors: I am a Belgian expat wife and mother. I have lived in several African countries and have very recently moved to DR Congo. We have one child who is nearly three (how fast does time go when you have a child). We're unschoolers, we eat paleo, and there's probably a bunch of other labels I could throw in but I don't have the energy. I am pretty much a passionate person and that's why I write this blog.
I am also a writer for a number of other publications, such as SQUAT, Life Learning Magazine and Natural Life Magazine. You can also find me on twitter: @Mamapoekie and on Facebook

You'll find many different things on here. I do a lot of guest posts, to get fresh ideas (if you are interested in guest posting you can read my page on contributing). I write about everything child related, about feminism and unschooling and health and women. Breastfeeding and peaceful parenting are some of my hot topics. But the best way to discover what I write about is to browse the pages of this blog, maybe start y having a look at my Best Of (though they could really use some dusting off).



  1. Thanks for sharing and happy to see you in the blog party. : )

  2. What a great idea! I had natural child birth and that was so not me going in~! Glad my daughter was born DRUG FREE!. But then, i fell apart with postpartum. IF you are suffering from it - GET HELP!

    That is the ONLY way through!
