My journey as a Mama Coach
“I am so excited to be a Mama Coach to support women and families with their own unique journey in parenthood- whether it’s your first or fourth child. “
My name is Jenn and I am a Registered Nurse, lactation counsellor, infant sleep coach and mama to a sweet little guy.
Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a nurse, so after high school I attended Douglas College where I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. As amazing as all nursing fields are, it was maternity that really confirmed that this was exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I immediately enrolled in BCIT for my Perinatal Speciality Certificate. Over the last 10 years I have expanded my role into antenatal clinics, labour and delivery nurse and postpartum nursing. I find it extremely rewarding helping and supporting women and their families in their brief hospital stay and sending them home empowered to be their best possible parent.
In 2016 I started my own wild ride into motherhood with my amazing little boy Davis. As a new first time mother I had difficulties I didn’t expect. I had an alert, adorable, hungry little boy who loved to eat and comfort suck but also had an undiagnosed tongue tie and lip tie.
It took 6 weeks of extremely painful breastfeeding before we discovered the problem. With a shallow latch and aggressive feeder I was only able to get an effective latch in a certain position and in a very specific way, and only at home. I searched for help but felt lost and very discouraged. This, coupled with my post-partum anxiety, led to a few very emotional days before I went back to the basics in breastfeeding education and my experience with helping other women to find what worked for me and my baby.
I am so excited to be a Mama Coach so I can support women and families with their own unique journey in parenthood- whether it’s your first or fourth child. Reach out, I would love to hear your story and help.
