Twins. Mothers.


We’re Hannah and Kelty, hosts of a podcast and video series that inspires parents to transcend their parenting struggles with awareness, grace and purpose. The work we do is grounded in the acknowledgement that we have just as much growing up to do as our kids.

We search for meaning as mothers by engaging with the most difficult aspects of parenting — basically, all the things that make us want to drink wine and hide under the covers.

Upbringing represents our journey to get more comfortable amidst our most uncomfortable experiences, inspired by the belief that HERE is where real growth lies. The hard stuff is the good stuff!

The answers to our struggles are already within us, just waiting for the right questions to be asked. Let’s show up and grow up.

We’re better together! Join the Upbringing today by subscribing to our podcast and newsletter. Learn more about our work and our journey on the FAQ page.


The Podcast



Interviews with Creatives

We’re fascinated by unique perspectives on the intersection between creative work and parenthood. The brilliant women we speak with may be stars in their respective fields, but damn, it’s both inspiring and comforting to hear about their personal challenges and distinct upbringings.


Book Features

The many facets of our lives are interconnected, each able to inform and strengthen the other. As we review and summarize books on habits, creativity and personal growth, we will apply these coveted skills and perspectives beyond our work and personal lives and into our experience as parents.




Our children don’t bring out the worst in us — they challenge us to become our best. These episodes examine ways to align our ideals with our daily parenting practices. Together, we’ll build skills around the only thing we can control — our own thoughts and behavior.

Our Empowerments

Some may call them beliefs, guideposts, tenets, or mantras; we call them Empowerments. Each reminds us of the sacred responsibility to reflect our greatest ideals amidst the shit-storm of our experience as parents. Empowerments are vital touchstones that inspire authentic alignment between what we believe and what we do.

Do we practice them every single day? No way. And that’s the point — they’re the kick in the ass that keeps our heads clear and our hearts in the game.

Some Empowerments may resonate, others may repel but we hope they inspire you to define and endeavor to live by your own. We will expand on the meaning of each in our podcast episodes as well as our Dear Upbringing videos!
