Cleft Lip and palate Support

As a Mama Coach, I know how hard this time of your life can be.  You are overwhelmed by your baby’s cleft diagnosis and are looking for answers and information to help you care for your baby. Your child is your whole world, but you are stressed because your baby is having a difficult time eating and gaining weight. You aren’t sleeping well, because your baby is always crying and it can be challenging to enjoy parenthood.

You are not alone and there is support out there
I will take the time to really listen and assess your child and his needs. I will be there to support you from newborn feeding challenges, to preparing for surgery, to care of your baby after surgery. I can also provide support for typical baby challenges from prenatal support, sleep hygiene, starting solids to potty training. My approach is not cookie-cutter. It is customized to each individual family. Check out my package options below! Not sure what package is best for you? Book a free discovery call by clicking here.
