About me

I’m Amanda! Mama of 2 boys, Registered Nurse, Prenatal Educator, IBCLC and Sleep Coach! I have over 7 years experience in Maternal Child Health, including labor and delivery, postpartum support, and pediatric care. My own personal struggles of entering into motherhood brought my attention to the gaps in the current system as well as the lack of support for mamas and new families. This has propelled me to share my expertise and passion with families in my community. I am committed to providing evidence based information and judgement free support. There is no one size fits all solution, and I can help you find yours! If you are looking for someone to come alongside you, encourage you, and be a part of your team during this transition, that’s what I’m here for!

There are so many factors that need to be accounted for, which is why as a Registered Nurse, I do a full assessment on your child and look extensively at feeding, development, weight gain, and your child’s circadian rhythm to recommend an approach and determine the best options for sleep that suits your individual family. Gentle Options available. Included in this package: Detailed intake questionnaire. Virtual One hour 1:1 assessment & Consultation. Customized comprehensive sleep plan. *No 1:1 Support with this package, but option to upgrade available. See "The Plan & Me"

Absolutely amazing! We were hesitant at first to invest in a prenatal course but are so glad we did with Amanda as our Mama Coach. She went above and beyond to answer any questions we had and check in on us before, during, and after to see how our family was doing. As first time parents we weren’t sure what to expect, but I feel like my delivery went so well because Amanda helped us feel prepared for any situation that could have come up. I knew my options and felt confident in advocating for my needs because Amanda had educated us. She’s been great every step of the way!
