A little about me! My name is Lexi. I received my bachelors of science in nursing from Purdue University in 2011. I initially started working with adults and found out pretty quickly that my passion was kids. I moved from working in an adult ICU to working as a substitute school nurse in 2013. After my second child was born in 2014, I felt like I wanted to be back at the bedside with patients. From then on, I worked at two large pediatric teaching hospitals. That is until, March of 2020, when the bottom dropped out of the universe.

Like many of you, my kids were suddenly at home constantly and I found the work life balance challenging to say the least. I made the decision to step away from the bedside and be home with my kids (we had had one more and were pregnant with our fourth child at this point). Like so many parents, we struggled with the absolute lack of support postpartum with the birth of our fourth child. Services were virtual if they existed at all. Wait times were outrageous, sometimes the help we needed was months out.

I had briefly explored the idea of becoming a Mama Coach shortly after the birth of my third child in 2017, but decided I wasn’t quite ready yet. Then, after experiencing first hand the enormous care gap for mothers and babies during the pandemic, I decided to take the leap. It was time to put my money where my mouth was, so to speak, and jump in with both feet. I feel so passionately about being part of the solution to this ever growing problem. I can no longer sit idly by watching mothers and babies struggle because they can’t access the help they need. We were never meant to walk this road alone. It’s my highest honor to stand in the gap with you and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Good question!  We are called The Mama Coach because years ago, when Carrie’s first boy was very small, she often wondered out loud to herself, “Where is my Mama Coach?” and “I need a Mama Coach!”.  Carrie searched and searched for qualified support and realized there was a need for qualified support for new families. We recognize that our name can give the impression that we only serve moms, but we will continue to work and learn to ensure our messaging is clear that all people are welcome here. Parents carry a heavy load, and do it with grace.  All parents deserve support, and The Mama Coach is the answer you’ve been searching for.  

We do not just support moms — we help ALL people.  All are welcome here, and we are committed to providing you with quality support, no matter your gender or family dynamic.  As we learned in nursing school, your family is who YOU say they are.

We get asked this one all the time.  As Registered Nurses, having merely one method does not align with how we were trained in University to utilize the nursing process.

The Nursing Process is defined as, a “systematic approach to care using the fundamental principles of critical thinking, client-centered approaches to treatment, goal-oriented tasks, evidence-based practice (EDP) recommendations, and nursing intuition.  Holistic and scientific postulates are integrated to provide the basis for compassionate, quality-based care” (*1).  

Simply put, we will assess your child using our nursing training to determine the best way to help your family reach their goals, walking beside you all the way.  You can choose us with confidence, knowing you have picked the most qualified resource to support your family’s journey.

Yes.  As Registered Nurses, we have years of training on where to access credible guidelines and information. All of our programming is based on extensive research from credible sources.

As Registered Nurses, it is our professional obligation to manage client records and confidential information properly.  We use an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) that is compliant throughout North America.  Even though we share the same brand, we are all independent Registered Nurses with our own private practices. As such, we each have our own EMR that is private and secure. We do not share EMR or client information between one another without consent.

Often they are — the answer largely depends on where you live and what your private insurance covers.  For example, in Canada, our services are covered under ‘Lactation’, ‘Registered Nurse Services’ or ‘Health Spending Accounts’.  In the United States our services can be covered as well, through HSA or FSAs.  Reach out to me for more information.
