As a new Mom, Ann Marie failed to find a successful carrier option for her oldest daughter despite trying. She was delighted to discover Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA after the birth of her second and set about learning as much as she could so that she could help prevent other parents from the frustration she had in not finding a good carrier with her oldest. She is now the president of the board of directors for Babywearing International, she is an MBE with Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA and helps parents around our Nation's Capital to wear their babies safely and comfortably while regularly wearing her middle and youngest daughters. Ann Marie Rodgerson graduated from Elon University with a BA in English and Theatre Arts. She earned her Master's in Education from Marymount University while working as a secondary English and theatre teacher. Ann Marie left professional teaching for the informal classroom of parenting. Ann Marie is the chair of the committee planning the 2012 International Babywearing Conference in Washington, DC. She is looking forward to hosting the world and spreading the babywearing love.

Join Rebecca and Moon as they sit down with Ashley Wright to discuss how she got on the path of breastfeeding advocacy and attachment parenting. From Pole dancing & yoga to breastfeeding on the red carpet she lives a very in your face, take it or live it life that we admire here at View From A Rack.
"Hailing from the illustrious Golden State she always had an appreciation for love, fitness, artistic expression and a natural way of living. After having obtained a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Hampton University, she began to slowly come into her own rejecting the demands of what others felt were appropriate for her life. However, it wasn’t until she became a mother, that she truly understood her path and the necessity of support.
Having organized the most attended World Breastfeeding Event to date with the Northeast Valley Health Center, she began to live out loud, using social media to build her village, increase her family and establish a strong support system; spreading the message of self-love, healing and natural parenting.
Her message to all parents and individuals is, “It is okay to be 100% committed to your child(ren) and loved ones. In doing so make sure that you take the time to give to yourself."
