Natural parents come in all shapes, sizes and colors with different beliefs and practices. Below, see what some of our volunteers had to say about what makes them a natural parent, and read more about our volunteers on our About page.

This is what a natural parent looks like:

“I am a natural parent because my baby has slept next to (or on top of) me since day one.”

Periodically, we would like to feature members of the Natural Parents Network community in posts such as this one. If you would like to be included, tell us what makes you a natural parent in the form of “I am a natural parent because ___.” Send along a photo, short bio and a link to your blog (if applicable) to mail@naturalparentsnetwork.com with the subject line “I am a natural parent because.”
