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.”

Jennifer is a Natural Parents Network author and mentor. She blogs at Hybrid Rasta Mama

“I am a Natural Parent because I like to follow my child’s instincts as well as my own!”

Jorje is the Wordless Wednesday coordinator for Natural Parents Network. She blogs at Momma Jorje.

“I am a natural parent because I wear my child.”

Shannon is an author (and jill-of-all-trades) for Natural Parents Network. She blogs at Artful Mama.

“I am a natural parent because I prioritize developing my baby’s appreciation of the natural world.”

Charise is a Natural Parents Network author and blogger at I Thought I Knew Mama

“I’m a natural parent because I tried again for a home birth (and made it!).”

Lauren cofounded Natural Parents Network. She blogs at Hobo Mama.

“I am a natural parent because I discovered that I like breastfeeding enough to work very hard to get my child to nurse from the breast.”

Laura is an author for Natural Parents Network. She blogs at WaldenMommy: Life Behind the Red Front Door

“I am a Natural Parent because I use cloth rags instead of paper towels.”

Amanda is an articles editor and social media volunteer for Natural Parents Network. She blogs at Let’s Take the Metro.

“I am a natural parent because I work to involve my children in growing our own food, even though we live in a third floor apartment.”

Jennifer is a social media volunteer for Natural Parents Network. She blogs at True Confessions of a Real Mommy.

“I am a natural parent because I follow my son’s lead in discovering and learning.”

Dionna cofounded Natural Parents Network. She blogs at Code Name: Mama.

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.”

    What a great idea – I loved reading these. A nice alternative to Wordless Wednesday.

    This is awesome. I love how there are so many different ways to define “natural,” because it’s all about what works best for the family and the baby while maintaining peace, balance, and love.

    I’m a natural mama because I’m a tree hugger at heart(and I want my baby to get the healthiest start possible in life)!

    Love this! I’m sending mine in. :)

    This is beautiful! Being a natural parent to me is very important. Nothing is better than being fully connected with our children and our Earth. :)
