My name is Robin and I am so excited to bring the Mama Coach to Edmonton. I have been a Registered Nurse in Emergency and Paediatric Emergency for over 11 years and have additional training as an Infant Sleep Coach and Lactation Counsellor. Helping others has always been a calling for me. My desire to help others is what drew me to Nursing as a profession and now it has led me to helping make motherhood easier!
Being a mother is my greatest joy
I have two beautiful daughters, a 4 year old and a 7 month old. Being a mother is my greatest joy, but it hasn’t always been a joyful experience. My first daughter had a tongue tie which made nursing difficult. I pumped and syringe fed her for the first month. I had supply issues and the fact that neither of us were sleeping much, complicated matters further. She suffered from colic, reflux, milk and soy sensitivities, and would cry all night, every night.
I was devastated. I felt like I was failing at being a mother. I loved my baby more than anything and had all this medical knowledge, so why was this so hard?
At 9 months my daughter was diagnosed with an immune disease that can cause anaphylaxis from pretty much anything. I learned all I could about allergies, reactions, epipens, antihistamines and made sure my husband and family members were equally as prepared.
It took about a year, lots of research and the help of many professionals to get all of our issues sorted out. In hindsight, I wish I had gotten help earlier, I feel I missed out on many of the joys the first year has to offer.
Why I became a Mama Coach
The birth of my second daughter brought new challenges, but I felt better equipped to handle them this time. Talking to other moms, colleagues and friends I realized that I wasn’t alone in the struggles I had faced. Inconsolable crying, feeding difficulties and sleep issues are very common.
I don’t want anyone else to struggle or feel alone like I did and that is why I became a Mama Coach.
I wish that I could give you a magic answer to solve your problems. Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy. Every family, child and their issues are unique and as such requires a personalized solution.
“I want to help you find the solution that works for your family. So if you are struggling with feeding, sleep or allergies, please reach out to me, I would love to help make it easier for you and help you find your joy!”
