Alli Wittbold is a wife, mama, blogger, and online teacher. She feels passionate about connecting expectant mothers with childbirth class educators, and supporting them to achieve the birth they desire. After having her first baby delivered by a Certified Nurse Midwife, Alli is an advocate for midwifery prenatal care. She has learned so much about labor and delivery by attending and reviewing dozens of birth classes to help mothers learn and explore options. Alli co-authored the Week-by-Week Bump Smart Course, the Nesting Planner and the Breastfeeding Handbook, resources she is proud to share with as many expectant and new mothers as possible.
Alli completed a B.A. in Elementary Education at Manhattan College and an M.Ed. in Elementary ESL Education from the University of Massachusetts. In addition to years spent as a teacher in early childhood and elementary school classrooms, Alli worked as a professional nanny in New York City as an undergraduate student and locally while completing her graduate degree. This lead to a wide variety of experience in childrearing with babies and children ages 3 months to 13 years old. She has attended scores of baby development classes, attended nanny trainings, and learned various parenting techniques to uphold the values of the unique families for whom she was employed.
Alli brings the experiences and know-how she gained from over 7 years helping families raise their children, as well as her own experience as a mother, and knowledge of educational theories to Mom Smart Not Hard. She aims to couple real-life experience with expert knowledge and research to help expectant and new mothers thrive.
