My journey as a Mama Coach
“I have come to learn the importance of having people on my team, and I want to be there to support you for whatever life and parenthood bring your way.”
Hi! My name is Maddie, and I am so excited to bring The Mama Coach to Fort McMurray! I am a Registered Nurse, and the Mama to one fiercely independent 1.5 year old. These are two titles I feel so incredibly lucky to have! I have spent my nursing career working with critically ill babies and children, and have had the privilege to support parents through the best and worst days of their lives. When I was 7 months pregnant, I lived through the stressful events of the Fort McMurray Wildfire, which seemed to have set the stage for my first experiences with motherhood. My birth plan got thrown out the window when my sweet baby Rowan was born with her cord tightly around her neck. We had an extended stay in the hospital, struggled with breastfeeding issues, and had a baby who just wouldn’t sleep.
Because baby didn’t sleep, Mama didn’t sleep, and my relationships and mental health paid the price. We struggled to find breastfeeding support, or a sleep coach that was a good fit for our family, which has guided me towards becoming a Mama Coach. I have come to learn the importance of having people on my team, and I want to be there to support you for whatever life and parenthood bring your way. I am here to tell you that you don’t need to wear lack of sleep or damaged nipples as a badge of honour, and that “mama guilt” doesn’t need to part of your vocabulary. Parenthood can be scary, and lonely, and painful, but it is also beautiful and rewarding. I can’t wait to support you along your journey, and help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
