Our Right From The Start online course is almost closed for enrollment!

We loved sitting down with Paula of The Way We Parent Podcast and New Paradigm Motherhood Instagram Account to and connect about ways we can support our older kids as we add a new baby to the family! Click here if you'd prefer to watch the interview!

Our Right From The Start video course and community will bring you both the reassurance AND information you need in your baby’s first year to make the decisions that are uniquely right for your family. ✨ No prescribed rules, no perfection to attain… Just the essentials to help you move forward with clarity and confidence.

In nine modules over eight weeks, Right from the Start will help you to:
✔️ Understand what scientific research says about baby’s sleep, attachment, feeding, play and other essential topics
✔️ Know that you’re doing the best you can for your baby’s development
✔️ Find your sense of yourself again (or maintain it if you’re not yet a parent!)
✔️ Let go of the overwhelm and worry that there isn’t enough of you to go around
✔️ Get clear on how to parent your baby with alignment of your greater values
✔️ Find support and strength in a community of like-minded parents and parents-to-be

Not just focused on quick fixes for daily challenges, this course will help you lay the critical groundwork for a lifelong relationship with your child based in trust, collaboration and respect. ✨

If you’re expecting or are the parent of a child under 1, the Right from the Start course is for you.

What is Upbringing?

Welcome to Upbringing. We’re Hannah and Kelty - twins, mothers and works-in-progress. Upbringing is a movement that empowers parents to grow up alongside their kids for sanity and social change. Through this podcast, speaking and coaching, we focus on our personal work as parents- the awareness, mindset and approach needed to raise amazing kids while ALSO getting shit done.

Join us to radically redefine kids’ resistance as a magical opportunity to nurture skills and values like consent, non-violent communication, emotional intelligence, body positivity, independence and beyond. We do this by practicing powers beyond control — respectful, evidence-based tools that protect our kids’ personal freedoms, support their skill-building and better align with how we roll as people.

To us, this is the practice of parenting. When we can lean in and approach the hardest moments with our kids as an invitation to grow up ourselves, we all win. When we work to examine our triggers, face our fears and question our beliefs, we are bravely working against years of unconscious cultural conditioning. And when we work to rewrite those inherited legacies that don’t serve anyone... our kids are free, and so are we.

We’re going to make mistakes as parents. LOTS of them. And that’s ok- because our growth depends on it. We are right here with you, taking steps to better understand ourselves, our kids, and one another - one conversation at a time. Because when we can choose trust over fear, connection over control and progress over perfection, we’re not just raising our kids, we’re raising ourselves. Let’s show up and grow up!
