Hi, I’m Shannon Viertel.

I’m a busy Mamma of three active little boys. We live in Brisbane, Australia. I’m a qualified Early Childhood Teacher and a massive advocate for play based learning. We aim to live a pretty minimalist lifestyle, spending most of our time outdoors.

I have a pretty high dependence on coffee and social media. When I  get  rare opportunities to have time alone I enjoy reading, listening to chilled out music  ,drinking wine and binge watching shows on Netflix.  


After the birth of my third son I developed Post Natal Depression. The silver lining from this experience was that I discovered a love for writing and sharing my voice about Motherhood.  I published my first children’s book in 2016 titled Mamma has a Black dog.


You can see a preview of my book (HERE).  The book was written to help explain Depression to young children if they have a parent affected.

Nurture Mamma is my new baby. The new baby that doesn’t need to be breastfed and doesn't cry when I leave the room. I want this blog to remind mothers that their  spiritual, emotional, social and physical needs are worth making time for.
