I’m not a mama yet, nor do I plan on becoming one in the near future… but one day, I do hope to be. I know for a lot of vegans, the concept of parenthood (and indeed pregnancy) whilst vegan is one of angst and uncertainty. We don’t want to compromise our morals, but that’s easier said than done when there’s a little one (or two, or three…) that depends on, initially, our body for nourishment and then our guidance and care for the next 18+ years. It’s scary, of course it is. And, obviously, as all parents – especially mothers – get judged and back-seat parenting advice, making the decision to be a vegan parent to a vegan child comes with its own criticisms and stigmas. I’ve been using Instagram to find advice, and vegan parents, so that if it comes to this scenario for me, I will be better informed and will have access to an online support system of people in the same boat! So, here are some of the great vegan parenting accounts that I’ve come across…
Chloe is an Australian vegan momma, parent to 6 vegan kids aged 5 and under. Wow.

Have I missed any amazing vegan mums, dads, and families? Sorry, I know this is very female heavy but I couldn’t seem to find many family/parenting accounts run by men! I’m sure they are out there, so please do let me know of any you like!
