This is episode 64 and today I’m here with Ashleigh Warner talking about bringing a second baby into the family.

Ashleigh is a psychologist from Australia who works with parents around the world who are looking to heal old wounds, shift intergenerational patterns and step onto more of a respectful parenting path. She is also a mum of two young boys who are, of course, her greatest teachers of all.

Inclusion: We share how we included our older children.

We answer the question of how to explain a miscarriage to your young child.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
