Hi and welcome! I’m Lauren and I have my Masters Degree in Public Health with a focus in Maternal and Child Health. In completing my MPH I gained a strong understanding of the science and theory of maternal and child health but as a mom I am now faced with putting this wealth of knowledge into practice.
I started this site as a way to chronicle my own personal journey into motherhood but I also wanted it to be a resource for other parents out there.
I currently live in the D.C. Metro area with my husband, Rafaan, who is a data scientist by day and a web comic author by night, our son Asher and our daughter Bennett.
I am passionate about being a mom, health, food, writing and fun; this blog is a way for me to meld these passions and to do what I love.
Thanks for coming and I hope you stick around!
Lauren Rutstein Anvari, MPH
