My journey as a Mama Coach

Motherhood is an amazing journey of joy and challenges. Until I became a mama I didn’t realize what challenges that I would endure.

I have had many- having three babies with varying degrees of reflux requiring medication, post partum anxiety, breastfeeding challenges and major sleep issues.

Being a nurse I am not a stranger to working nights but the level of sleep deprivation you endure as a parent is indescribable and became unbearable for me. When I was pregnant with my third baby I heard about sleep consultants and that day I made a promise to myself and my husband that no matter what I was going to get help with sleep this time.

My journey as a mama coach began with a desperate call to the mama coach.

My son was three months old and his sleep starting regressing and he was waking up every 2 hours. Some nights I would have to hold him upright all night. I just could not keep going that way any longer. I hired an infant sleep consultant and I helped my baby learn how to sleep. It changed my life!!!! It changed my whole family’s life and it gave me my life back! I am now able to soak up all those moments as a mama and have a feeling of presence with my kids. I am no longer just surviving and just getting through every day.

I was so thrilled with this life changing experience that I want to help other families who are struggling and decided to become a trained infant Sleep Coach.

I am determined to help you with your journey of parenthood and work with you to find a solution that fits you and your babies needs. Please call or email for a free consultation so we can get started of finding your solution.
