Private Coaching To Prepare For Baby Arrival

Congratulations on your soon-to-be baby! My ‘Before Baby’ private coaching sessions were created to empower you with knowledge so that you can be ready for the happy event. I know how these times can be a bit overwhelming, so much to think about and information to sift through. I am here to guide you in understanding your important role as your child’s first teacher. My private coaching sessions are ideal for first-time parents as well as parents anticipating the arrival of a new sibling. My recommendations are founded in the world-renowned Montessori method. I will help you apply these principles at home and in your daily life, easing the stress of parenting from the start.
