Carmen Carlson - Certified Coach

About Me

My name is Carmen Carlson. I have lived in the Central Texas area since 1997. I married my wonderful husband in April, 2012. We have 2 amazing daughters that have been EC’d since birth and both started potty training at 19 months. I work full-time as a sales account manager. I enjoy maintaining a yearly vegetable garden with my family, reading, especially to my girls, and cooking from scratch when time permits.

COACH Q&A

My experiences with Elimination Communication

When did you first learn about EC? What did you think? What did you do about it?

I think a little before I was pregnant with my first and I knew it would be something I would do with my children. So I started researching and learning about it to be able to convince my husband.

What does it mean for you to teach EC?

To share the great health, financial, and environmental benefits our family experienced from EC.

What is your favorite piece of EC gear or clothing?

Legwarmers, love them!

What book has inspired you the most on the path to becoming a more empowered mother?

Yell Less, Love More: How the Orange Rhino Mom Stopped Yelling at Her Kids - and How You Can Too!

What would you tell someone who is thinking of trying EC for the first time?

Just try it, doesn't have to be all the time, 100% or nothing. Just start with the easy ones, pottying during a diaper change or before bath time. See what happens, see what it's all about. And if you have the opportunity, potty your newborn instead of getting the meconium diaper, trust me, it's worth it.
