Putting the Back, into Back to School: Back Pack Tips for your Child

With kids back in school now, and the back-to-school madness somewhat calmed down, I thought it would be great to share a few ergonomic and tips to help you help your daycare/school age children carry their load comfortably and safely.

Backpacks come in all sizes, colors, fabrics, and shapes and help kids of all ages express their own personal sense of style.

It takes a village to raise a child: how Occupational Therapists can support new moms!

Since having my first child just two years ago, I developed a strong passion for pre-natal/postnatal women’s health, the bonding/attachment between mom and baby, and supporting moms to support their child’s development from the beginning.  My newfound courage as a mother recently propelled me into starting my own business, as an entrepreneur and Occupational Therapist, called Play & Bloom Therapy. 

My goal is to become a part of their (moms) 'village', to foster their support network, which will positively impact the health and well-being of both mom and baby.
