I’m Ashley aka the Mindful Momma Bear! Im a 29-year-old Montana native currently live in South Carolina.  My wonderful husband, Nick, has two jobs 1)Navy sailor and 2) official blog editor. Together we have a 18-month-old baby boy, Rhett, and two furbabies, Shiloh (Corgi) and Kona (cat).  Since becoming a mom, I have paused my career as a special education teacher and have taken on the role of stay-at-home mom (and amateur blogger).

I love podcasts, the smell of coffee, breweries, farmhouse decor, National Parks, and Jesus!

As a new mom, I struggled with Postpartum Depression and often felt lost. I craved real people and real conversations, but I lived in a new place and had a hard time reaching out to people . So, I started turning to blogs and reading about others experiences. These blogs provided me encouragement, advice, and someone to relate to. So, now it’s my turn to return the favor.

I hope that you leave my blog gaining one helpful piece of advice. Fun fact, my son’s name means “advice”. Coincidence or fate?!

The Skinny On the Name

Why Mindful Momma Bear? The momma bear is a protector. She would do anything for her cub (child) …I can relate to the momma bear! To me, a mindful momma bear is a mom who is conscious and seeks ways to help their child be safe, grow, and thrive.
