Hi, I’m Heather – mom, wife, former nanny and daycare owner with over 10 years experience working with children of all ages in different capacities. This website was created to help new moms navigate motherhood and life as a stay-at-home mom.
I am now a mom of 3 kids under 5 years old, living on the west coast of Canada.
After nannying in several countries, getting a university degree, working a handful of desk-jobs, and opening my own childcare facility, I knew that being a work from home mom was exactly where I’m meant to be. Taking care of children has been my lifelong passion.
After I had my own kids I knew I wanted to share this journey with others, so with unwavering support from my husband, Straight Goods Motherhood was born.
Let’s be real; motherhood is not picture perfect!
Don’t fall into the social media trap of believing other moms magically have everything together. They don’t. We all face challenges and things can get messy (really messy)!
But beyond the constant tidying of disastrous houses, conciliating crying kids (when you would also love to just have a little meltdown), climbing a laundry mountain that never ends, offering an abundance of unconditional love around the clock and at times becoming utterly exhausted in doing so… this role of motherhood -in my opinion- is by far the most rewarding privilege in the entire world!
Sometimes we just need a little other-mother support along the way. So Straight Goods Motherhood is here to keep it real and keep it lighthearted for like-minded moms.
I believe in providing useful tips, realistic ideas and nonjudgmental advice, contributing my honest experiences, sharing only the most practical (and almost always wallet-friendly) products, and building an impressive community of phenomenal picture-imperfect moms.
I’d love for you to join us!
