My name is Isil Simsek. I live in England since 2006 with my husband S. and my two children Defne born (03/01/2007) and Derin (17/01/2010).
I am originally from Turkey.
I studied economics and worked as a purchasing specialist at a retail chain. At the moment I am training as a Montessori teacher.
I am passionate about natural childbirth, breastfeeding, babywearing, gentle discipline, green living, organic and local foods, sustainable living and informed healthcare decisions.
Here I write about natural family living, early years education, play, food, literature, music, design and cinema.
