The Mama Coach™ Calgary


Sherry Thom

My name is Sherry, and I’m a Registered Nurse and mother of three lovely children. I’ve been working with families and children for over 11 years through my work as a Registered Nurse, 10 of which have been at the Alberta Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology Unit. Other experience includes work as a Camp Nurse for Easter Seals and Kids Cancer Care. My deep passion for nursing stems from the rich relationships I build with the families I work with.

My motherhood journey

My motherhood journey started 4 ½ years ago when we welcomed our beautiful daughter into this world. Since then we have also welcomed an adventurous son and another charming little girl. The birth of our boy brought on a whole new set of challenges for our family. We struggled with colic, infant allergies, breastfeeding problems and horrible sleep issues. I found it difficult to navigate through the wealth of information that was available and hard to find any real solutions that would consistently work. I often felt alone, frustrated and confused. Then, when our third child was born a little sooner than expected, we sought help from the Mama Coach to deal with the stress that comes with a growing family. The help we received made such a lasting impact, and changed my life so much that I knew I wanted to help others that may be in a similar predicament.

Moms need to help other Moms and we need to build each other up, share our experiences, and learn from each other. Motherhood is the most rewarding job you will do in your life, but it is also the most challenging. I became a Mama Coach so I could help other moms navigate through their specific challenges of motherhood. I want to help others feel confident, strong and empowered in the care they are providing for their children; providing them with a safe place to explore options, ask questions and find answers that work for their families.

My training as a Mama Coach, breast feeding educator and deep experience as a Registered Nurse can significantly help you and your family, and I truly look forward to working together!

What’s holding you back?

  This past week was a tough one. I went back to work, which was  inspiring, but also brought along stress that I wasn’t expecting. My middle son was off which caused a lot of tears and tantrums. I felt as though I had hit a thousand roadblocks in developing my... read more
