About

About Allison

Hi there. My Mama Coach journey started because I wanted to find a way to help parents go through the transformational process of pregnancy and parenthood in a more holistic manor. I believe in empowering women and families by providing evidence-based information, partnership, and support to help them achieve their goals. My love for Obstetrics started after I saw my first birth in nursing school; I have spent the majority of my 15 years as a nurse working in labor & maternity units. I am board certified for inpatient obstetrics (RNC-OB) and internationally board certified in lactation (IBCLC). During my career, I also assisted in the initiation and development of a hospital based lactation program; because I believe breastfeeding families often don’t get enough support. Another passion of mine is women’s health and wellness and that led me to becoming certified in women’s health coaching through The Integrative Women’s Health Institute. This certification has better allowed me to infuse my whole health perspective in a coaching capacity. In addition to running Mama Coach, I currently work as a part-time birth assist at Cocoon Wellness and Birthing Center.
