A good friend told me this picture is very descriptive of me so here it is…
My name is Carolina. I am a mama to 2 little girls who are my world! I’m also an intuitive parenting educator, a wellness advocate, TV contributor, writer and speaker. You can say I like to keep busy!
I’m on a mission to help and empower mothers, like you, who want to live an intentional life, who feel a pull towards alternative parenting styles and a more natural way of living. And who desire to do this without losing their minds, without going to any extreme and on your own terms.
If this resonates with you, welcome! I am so happy we have found each other.
Here's how we can connect
I’m constantly sharing inspiration, parenting and green living tips as well as a behind of the scenes of our crazy lives on Instagram stories.
This is my favorite way to connect with you and I personally read all messages.
Make sure you subscribe to The Mama Instincts Podcast. That’s the best way to get to know me and what I share.

Who is behind Mama Instincts?
My name is Carolina, and I am a real human being that pours her heart and soul into this website.
My most important job is being a mama. This blog is my third baby! I’m an entrepreneur, writer and speaker.
I was born and raised in Costa Rica and moved to the US (Washington DC) in 2011 when I married the love of my life, Graham.
I am a firm believer in positive parenting practices, living a green and healthy lifestyle but without losing my mind, enjoying life to the fullest, questioning everything, raising children from a place of love, and listening to my Mama Instincts®.
My biggest passion is to empower moms so that they can become the person AND mom they were meant to be and so that they can create the life of their dreams, from the inside out...because life is too short to not enjoy it!
This is why this blog was born, from my desire to help and connect with other like-minded moms.
This quote is what drives me:
“One generation of deeply loving parents would change the brain of the next generation, and with that, the world.” – Charles Raison
My other passions are my family, coffee, coffee, coffee and traveling.
And my biggest dream is to meet all of you in person. So here’s to hoping we end up in a retreat or conference together but in the meantime let’s connect on Instagram.
