Today we’d like to introduce you to Carly Zuffinetti.
Hi Carly, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I was a special education specialist and classroom teacher for 12 years prior to becoming a mom. I created my Instagram and blog, The Preggers Pantry, during my first pregnancy eight years ago in hopes to inspire women to have the healthiest pregnancies and lives possible. I also wanted to connect with and share ideas with other health conscious & like-minded pregnant women and mamas. During this time, I noticed a need for cleaner, more natural skincare products-specifically ones that were safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women. This led to the development of my essential oil product line, where I created a multipurpose facial/belly/body oil (Mama’s Mirac-Oil), followed by a facial mist/toner (Mama’s Magic Mist) and several aromatherapy/perfume rollerballs with different purposes and benefits (Om Mama, Kama Mama & Cool Kids). I started a nonprofit organization, The Preggers Pantry Diaper Drive, which I host yearly to support families of the Miracle Babies charity. This will be my 8th year of hosting this event. My most recent adventure is homeschooling my two sons, so I love to post homeschool inspiration and ideas on Instagram. This is where I also enjoy sharing plant-based recipes as well as mom/kid-centered adventures, activities, products and ideas.
I recently completed a yoga teacher training through Its Yoga Kids, which qualifies me to teach yoga to kids ages 3-13. I was inspired to do this so I could better teach my young son’s mindfulness, empathy, kindness and compassion. One of my main life goals is to raise good humans!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Learning the ins and outs of social media for sure!
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
My favorite part about San Diego is the weather! It makes is so much easier to homeschool when we can be outside exploring every day!
