Hi, I’m Heather and welcome to One Egg Nest.  I started this blog to talk about the experience of being a one child mom.  It gradually expanded to talking about my experiences as a mom of a preemie, my post partum depression and anxiety, and further branched into advocacy for women’s health issues.

My hope now is to turn this space into a community for mothers and women’s/maternal health advocates.

I am originally from the United States, but am now living in New Zealand.  In the US I spent my almost 10 year career working in health policy.   Now in New Zealand I will be studying for a Master in Public Health, during the course of which I intend to research maternal health issues, particularly effective woman centered approaches to working with pregnant women suffering from substance abuse and/or mental health disorders.

I am excited to focus on building One Egg Nest into a platform and voice for women and mothers.  If you are interested in providing a guest post or have suggestions for content please contact me at oneeggnest@gmail.com.
