Vegas Natural Families was conceived to create a physical manifestation of our natural family community here in Las Vegas. I am pleased to be a co-founder for this organization, along with Alina Anderson – a friend, former client, businesswoman and enthusiastic Attachment Parenting advocate. After many conversations and brainstorming sessions, we came up with a vision for an entity that would embrace those of us who were already on the natural parenting path, as well as draw in those who might want to live a more natural lifestyle but are not sure how to get started. The result: Vegas Natural Families.
The kickoff event, which should prove to be fabulous, is coming up this Saturday. Please read the press release below, then come see the best of Las Vegas’ Natural Health and Parenting community.
PBi is proudly sponsoring the event, and I will be giving a presentation on the wonders of placenta at 11:15. I would love to see you there!
