HI I'M JAMIE!
I aim to impact your life and your family
It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together. I am fortunate enough to have found not only my passion but my gift. As a member of a mother/baby and labor and delivery team, I gave much needed support to families of all backgrounds and components experiencing new life for the first, second or sometimes the eighth time. It did not matter if the people in the room were related or not, only that they were all family and each member needed a different need met in a different way. From a mother who opted for an adoption but needed closure to a mother who needed validation to decide against breastfeeding her child born by surrogate.
There were many capacities I could serve in and I wanted to help everyone in every way I could. Unfortunately in the hospital setting, time did not always allow for me to fulfill the right to be supported that every family needed. So, I decided to create my own environment where this was possible. I founded A Baby Consultant where I aided many families in a range of duties from breastfeeding, sleep training, loss of pregnancy, birth and much more. I also joined a local NICU unit where I ensured that every premature infant had the best nutrition available from donor milk to expressed breast milk. It was here that I learned how to support a mother who had milk but no baby, or a father with a baby but no partner.
During all of my experiences the one thing I have learned the most is sometimes the problem can not be fixed. Sometimes the fix is to be present in the moment with a listening ear and an empathetic heart. Only when true concerns are heard can collectively a middle ground or place of peace be found. I am positive so I have found my purpose in life.
