Hi, I’m Nicole! I’m a mother of two little ones, Isla, 4, and Ellis, 2, and wife to an incredible husband. I’m passionate about my family, fitness, clean eating—and wine drinking!—sharing birth stories, and spreading knowledge and cultivating connection in the birth, parenting, and women’s health realms. I strive to create a safe space where we can proudly share our stories, our struggles, and our successes.

Birth Stories

We have published more than 50 birth stories on Motherhood Memoir! Every story is unique and special in it’s own way—and they are all so raw and inspiring! We don’t shy away from the realness of birth. Along with stories of triumph and happiness, you’ll also find stories of struggle and loss. Want to submit your birth story? Click here to find out how.

Discover Clean-Crafted Wine

As an independent consultant for Scout & Cellar, a company that cultivates clean-crafted wine, I am incredibly passionate about sharing the mission to change the wine industry for the better, and ensure that the only thing we are getting in our wine glasses is delicious, clean, fermented grapes. No sugar, pesticides, or additives allowed.

Motherhood Memoir Network Meet-ups

Join an online meet-up where women come together virtually to discuss various topics around women’s health, tell their stories, relate to each other, and soak in information from the best in the birth community. With topics ranging from fertility, to hormonal regulation, to pelvic-floor health, and more, there is something for everyone in these virtual conversations.

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
