Hi, I’m Elizabeth

Glad you’re here! By day, I’m a researcher who completed my Ph.D. prior to becoming a mom of a baby and a toddler. My Ph.D work focused on pregnancy and education of young moms.

This site was born out of too many hours on bed rest applying my research skills to preparing for a pregnancy, baby, and parenting.
