Lisa Ketchmark

My name is Lisa and I am so excited to be part of The Mama Coach. I am a Registered Nurse and as the mother of two beautiful boys. With my first son, I struggled with breastfeeding but with perseverance and great advice from a postpartum nurse, I eventually mastered it. With my second son, breastfeeding was easier but we struggled with sleep issues. Getting up four times a night or sometimes more, while trying to function during the day, was demanding and wearing on the whole family.

I am passionate about pregnancy and supporting women and their families

Getting over those first mothering obstacles was challenging and stressful. I was so thankful for all the wonderful nurses who helped me. I know that I’m not the only mom that has struggled with breastfeeding and sleep issues. I want to help and that is why I became a sleep coach and lactation counsellor. I thoroughly enjoy working with people, big and small and I am committed to helping moms find solutions for their families.

Is your baby not sleeping? Are you struggling with breastfeeding? Are allergies a problem? Too busy for a prenatal class in the hospital- I will come to your house! I will work with you and your family to help you find a solution that you feel good about!

“I look forward to helping you and your family. Please call or email me today for a free consultation!”

My education and experience in nursing, and a degree in education has prepared me for this. My nursing and life experience further solidified my skills. I am confident that I can help your family navigate your mama challenges!
