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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
