We are Carrie Contey, PhD in prenatal and perinatal psychology and Bernadette Noll, writer and mother-of-four. You can read our individual bios here. Or continue on to read about our work together…

We came together in January of 2007. In January of 2008 we merged our work of parenting, coaching and writing creating a series of classes, workshops and talks. From that, Slow Family Living was born.  Our collaboration has been a dream for both of us and we hope and believe our love and admiration for each other and for the information we are putting out there shines through.

It is our desire to help families and individuals find ways to slow things down, not with a recipe or a prescription, but rather by questioning how things are going, and finding ways that work for them. It is our biggest intention to help families find ways to slow things down, connect and enjoy life together.

We want this site to serve as a clearinghouse for our classes, workshops, ideas, coaching, e-books and more. We want you to find the tools you need to slow things down in your own home, for your own family.
