When your identity broadens to include "working parent"...
As a perinatal professional, mom, and veteran of the corporate world, I have seen the pitfalls that trip up so many working parents. I have also seen how - with the right resources - working can improve parenting satisfaction, and parenting can improve job performance.
With Parental Leave Coaching, I help expecting and new parents take charge of their leave and return.
The journey to parenthood and working parenthood is not a one-size-fits-all. With compassion, pragmatism, and creativity, I work with parents to find the path that works best for everyone.

Amanda's coaching was hugely impactful as I transitioned into new parenthood and then into full-time working parenthood. She helped me to develop a confidence-based mindset and provided practical solutions to challenges I was facing. Our work together helped (and still helps) me to be calm and resilient but most of all to focus on what matters the most: the joy of bringing a new baby into our family.
