Ready for Potty Training!

This is an exciting time for your family! I’m here to make it smoother.

Whether you haven’t yet started or you have and you’re running into challenges, I have support options available to you!

New to Potty Training: Assessment & Consultation

$250 Virtual

This package is for you if:

  • You are ready to start toilet learning with your child and aren’t sure exactly where to start
  • You want to make the process as seamless as possible for both you and your child

As Registered Nurses, we are trained to look at the entire picture of your child’s health.  This assessment will help us determine and choose one of our research-based methods to help your child learn to use the toilet under the best possible circumstances.

How it works

We will send you a health questionnaire prior to our meeting.  As Registered Nurses, we are looking at your child’s physical health as well as cognitive development.  We can help ensure your child is ready to start this journey — which is the most important thing of all.  Starting before a child is ready, exponentially increases the risk of holding poop, constipation, and pee accidents.  We can help you skip those all too common speed bumps.

Then we will spend two hours on a virtual connection call to go over the entire process with you.  We are committed to getting to know your child and your family.  We want to set you up for success by arming you with the knowledge you need.  Then we will walk you through the process best suited for your family.

You will be sent tailored notes from our conversation together, as well as our eBook (over 95 pages of information on the approach best suited to your child).  One follow up email is included in the package and there is the option to purchase customized support.

AVAILABLE ADD-ONS

  • One month of email support – $99
    One email a week for four weeks
  • One month of email support- 2 emails a week – $149
    2 emails a week for 4 weeks

$250 Virtual

This package is for you if:

  • You have started toilet learning and it feels like a disaster
  • Your child cries when you try to get them to use the potty or toilet
  • Your child continues to have accidents
  • Your child will not poop in the potty no matter what you do or say

We know how frustrating all of this can be.  You know your child is capable, yet here you are, feeling disappointed and overwhelmed.  We are here to tell that you are exactly what your child needs.  They aren’t being bad or defiant.  At The Mama Coach, we can help you get to the bottom of all of their behaviours.  If you are starting to feel like toilet learning is consuming your entire life — let’s get started!

This package includes a two-hour consultation where we will help you navigate your current challenges, and help you take the next toilet learning steps for your family.  It also includes one follow-up email with the option to purchase customized ongoing support.  You will feel energized and excited to circle back to your toilet learning journey.

About Jessica

Hi, my name is Jessica Hale. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area near the coast. I live with my amazing 7 year old daughter, husband and our dog. I moved to the Bay Area to begin my career as a Registered Nurse in the Intensive Care Nursery. I’ve worked as an RN for 17 + years now. My nursing experience has ranged from working in the Intensive Care Nursery to Maternal/Infant and Pediatric Home Healthcare, Education and Lactation Consulting in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. I really fell in love with lactation support in my early clinical experience as a nurse, and becoming a mother myself really helped elevate my clinical and lactation focus in my career. I am here to offer a range of support from pregnancy to childhood including prenatal and lactation education, newborn care, feeding, sleeping and potty training. I am passionate about providing the education and support families need to help them achieve their goals in an unbiased, professional and supportive way.
