Even though The Mama Vault
was created to support other moms, for me, this is personal.
My search for understanding may have started with an unexplained rash on my son,
but it also coincided with an emotional time in my motherhood journey. I had recently
lost my unborn child to a miscarriage. I felt a deep need to protect my son which
undoubtedlywas connected to my loss. Fervent study and research about chemical
exposure and toxins led me directly to studies about the use of chemicals and pregnancy
complications. My determination grew, not just to purge my own home of harmful
substances, but to pursue wellness from the inside out. This wasn’t just about what
I cleaned my counters with, or what shampoo to use on my son, this was about
whole health; mind, and body. The better we ate, the better we felt. The better we felt,
the more we did as a family. The more we were traveling, the more comfortable clothing
that was cute and sustainable mattered to me. The more healthy our lives became
the more I wanted the same for other mothers. This isn’t just my passion, it’s my
purpose. This is personal.
