About The Hip Mama

Hi I’m Ange, a recent new mom. I started this blog at the urging of friends who liked my writing and my “unique”  and realistic view of my pregnancy. I am very opinionated, cynical, and offbeat on most topics, including pregnancy and parenting.  I wanted to write about my experiences in a way that was realistic and honest because so rarely did I find information about pregnancy (and now parenting) that really mirrored my experiences an feelings. I also wanted to show that just because the way you feel seems unpopular when you express it doesn’t mean it’s not normal.
I’m a tree-hugging dirt worshipper who loves tie-dying, organic gardening, Tai Chi Chih, yoga, cooking and baking, and  making my own bath and body products. I also love vibrant makeup and bright hair dye. I am a Wiccan-Buddhist who attends a Unitarian Universalist church. I’m married to an Orthodox Catholic. I have a degree in Psychology and Special Education and I’ve done graduate work in Psychology, Early Childhood Education, and the legal field. My career goal, after my child (or children possibly) is older, is to return to school and get my Master’s degree in Library and Information Science.

My goal for this blog is to provide personal experiences about pregnancy and parenting, relationships and such. I will also write reviews of kid stuff, books, and makeup, or any products that I think people may want to know about.
