why Bump Into Reality began
Three years ago, Mindy believed all labors included a rush to the ER, tears, f-bombs, and epidurals. Medical mishaps during her pregnancy led to investigative research of standard pregnancy and labor care around the world. Oddly enough, after months of research, she decided a home birth with the assistance of a local midwifery and Hypnobabies would be the safest route of labor for her family. The result was a comfortable, safe, and happy home birth. After sharing the same stories over and over to friends and family, she began to catalogue her journey on a blog.
With the current political, economic, and environmental climate, she hopes to share useful, balanced, progressive information that helps empower parents to make more informed decisions. She believes that the current purchasing habits of average new parent in the U.S. is harmful to the environment and unsustainable. The blog shares access to practical information that help families raise more environmentally conscious families.
