Adele and Matt Allen believe in an all-natural approach to bringing up their children.

So much so they refuse modern medicine, traditional schooling and encourage full-term breastfeeding.

Adele, 32, and Matt, 33, from the UK, call their parenting style 'Off-Grid Parenting' and their children Ulysses, five and Ostara, one, are therefore both still breastfed, have never visited a doctor and will not attend a mainstream school.

Adele said "Off-grid is a way to move the family toward , to be self-sustaining, more free, and less institutionalized."

Adele said she gave birth to both children completely unassisted and with no medical intervention, with only her husband by her side.
