For new parents

New parents find themselves on one of the steepest learning curves of their adult life, and all with a sense of immense responsibility. Coaching during this time can help new parents gain confidence in caring for their baby, practical skills including infant feeding, and prioritize self care of the new parent and of the couple relationship as well.

I value authenticity, creative problem-solving, humour and kindness. My own experiences and the stories that have come from working with new families for over 30 years inform and enrich my work.

I am warmly welcoming of people of all identities, inclusive of any gender expression, family arrangement, sexual orientation, body size, ethnicity, religion, and ability.

new parent coaching

This is truly on-the-job learning! These one hour sessions can help tackle your questions or worries, dispel myths, and clarify conflicting advice about the early days and weeks of caring for your new baby (or babies). We can work on practical baby care skills, help with infant feeding and sleep, and household organization.  Sessions can also focus on parents' emotional health, developing your parenting philosophy, and relationship support. I offer both virtual and home visits (within a reasonable travel distance from my home).
