Having a baby is crazy. Trying to maintain your normal life at the same time is crazy. It’s crazy good. Crazy busy. Crazy fun. And can be crazy overwhelming. That’s why I’m here! Whether you still have a bun in the oven and want to set the groundwork for a super easy transition from pregnant to new mama. You're looking to avoid those new parenting horror stories. Or if your little nugget has already arrived and you want to gain confidence & control, get some sleep, create that perfect balance between baby & biz, get back to feeling like you and totally rock the new parent game, I’m here to help! Let's do this, mama!
You want to be an amazing parent. You want to feel like yourself again. You want to keep up the momentum with your business life. You want a happy, well-rested, healthy baby. You want to feel like you know what you’re doing not just with your personal and work life, but with your pregnancy & new baby. You want a normal routine and some predictability. You want “me time” and “couple time” to be a normal part of your life. You want to get adequate sleep. You want to have date nights, attend your friend’s birthday party and get your hair cut. You want to have a smooth transition from pregnant gal to brand new mama. You want this little one to be the perfect addition to your family, not the sole focus of your life. You want to avoid those new parent traps and horror stories. You want to be the mom that has it all together and everyone envies (in a good way!).
I get it. That’s what we all want. To feel in control, confident and happy. People say that being a parent comes naturally. That’s craziness!! Just like learning a brand new hobby, training for a marathon, building a business from the ground up or dating to find your perfect match, there is a major learning curve. And pressure’s on because this new little thing’s life just happens to depend on you. That’s a huge amount of responsibility and work! Kind of overwhelming, right?
Maybe you have a huge support network...your hubby, mom, that lady down the street, your three siblings, your teenage niece, your mother in law and a handful of friends. But they want to visit with you, cuddle your babe and then head out when it’s time for dinner. They want to offer advice and share their parenting horror stories or how they did things way back when. They want to visit when mama and baby are happy and well-rested. They want to have a girls’ lunch with the baby in tow. They want to be around when things are going smoothly and you’re in control and feeling confident. They want to have the picture perfect time with you and leave when the baby starts crying. They want all the fun stuff and none of the work.
I get it. That’s totally normal and, in most cases, exactly how it should be! Family, friends and neighbors aren’t there to teach you how to get through the murky waters of new parenthood, they’re just supposed to keep you company, fawn over your little nugget & make you smile. And that’s great! But, you’ve got to put in the work to have the fun! That’s where I come in. If you want it all but don’t feel like doing this whole new parenting thing trial and error style, we’ll be the perfect team. You can have it all and more. And you deserve to have have it all and more.
I'm all about helping you ease through your pregnancy & enjoy the transition from bun in the oven to brand new mama. Just like you've hired support and experts to guide you through life so far--doctors, electricians, personal trainer-- you deserve to do the same with your pregnancy & new mamahood. This is an all new phase and it helps to have an expert on hand to walk you through it. Because you're totally rocking at life right now; you have things all figured out. I can make sure you maintain that rockstar, "I've got this!" feeling throughout your pregnancy and into new mamahood.
I’m all about helping you to really understand your baby’s cries, cues and innate schedule so you can confidently and consistently respond. You’ll know what to do, when to do it and feel in-control as a new parent. This mean that you'll have predictable down time to practice self-care, relax, get some work done or enjoy an uninterrupted dinner with your partner.
I’m all about making sure that your baby’s needs are met, so that your needs are met. Let me dive into this a little more… when your baby is struggling with sleep and has decided that social hour is from 2-3am each night, you won’t be getting the sleep that you so want and need. You’re more likely to catch a cold, have a tiff with your hubby, feel stressed out and wind up skipping your self-care practices like taking a shower or meditating. That’s no good and it totally doesn’t have to be that way. How, you ask, do you avoid issues like this? All you have to do is start “talking” with your baby. The key is learn your baby’s innate cues and schedules so you can consistently and efficiently respond to him. And when his needs are met, your needs are met. Voila! Pretty gosh darn incredible, if I do say so myself.
What if I told you that you could have it all??
A dream maternity leave. A happy, healthy, well-rested baby. A thriving work life. Romantic date nights with your partner. Time to shower, eat and rest every single day. The perfect balance between me time, work time, partner time & baby time. The confidence to parent the way that you want. A bond with your little one that’s unimaginably amazing. A sense of confidence, control & balance during your pregnancy & new mamahood. The chance to run errands, grab lunch with friends and spend the evening with your person. A predictable routine that you can count on. The ability to really understand what your baby is saying with his cries & cues. Control as a new parent instead of chaos. Avoiding all of those new parenting horror stories.
Sounds freakin’ amazing, right?! Who wouldn’t want all of those things?! Well guess what, you can. Together, we can make your transition from pregnant to brand new mama beyond amazing.
