About the Blog

Atlas & Axel is a blog that I created — named after my sons — to share my honest motherhood journey with others like me! I started this journey to connect with mothers who were interested in learning more about pregnancy, child development and motherhood in general. Along the way, I realized that motherhood is EXHAUSTING (although, very rewarding!) and mom’s tend to forget to give themselves a little TLC. This inspired me to become an advocate for SELF-CARE and really focus on lifestyle changes to make you the best version of yourself, for yourself and for your children. If you are looking for a place where your feelings and struggles are validated and tips are provided to make your life easier and better, I’m glad you found us!

HELLO, My name is Ainsley!
I just wanted to share a little bit about myself with you!

My entire life I’ve grown up around children — from helping my mom out with foster children since I was 8, to a formal education in Child Development, to becoming a mother of two by the age of 23. I used to think that to have children meant you had to sacrifice yourself entirely — that you are no longer your own person. As time goes on, I continue to learn that it is possible to have your children and family be your whole world and yet still be an individual with personal goals and interests. In fact, I believe it is NECESSARY to make time to make time for yourself in order to be a good parent. As the saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup.

Im going to be honest and say that I don’t have all the answers yet, but I’d love it if you’d join alongside me on this motherhood adventure so we can continue to become better individuals and better parents together!
