Mama In The Making is the one-stop-shop for pregnant women who want to rock the transition to motherhood. This fun, self-paced online program covers the "taboo" topics other classes ignore -- and arms you with the solutions most new mamas learn the hard way. We'll help you embrace this new phase of life while also protecting your sleep, self, and sanity!
Intrigued about the program, but want to learn more before diving in? Watch our Mama In The Making MasterClass to get a look under the hood, a feel for our teaching style, and a free lesson on the simple, yet easily replicable system we use to set our members up for success as new mamas.
What our members are saying...
"This course was incredible -- definitely a confidence booster and a MUST for first-time parents! I'm even re-watching with my partner! Ashley and Mandy were great, both with their backgrounds as moms and Mandy as a nurse. Thank you, thank you!"
"Mandy and Ashley really know their stuff! I can't recommend Mama In The Making enough. It includes so much need-to-know info, put into a very structured and organized manner. It definitely made our transition into parenthood so much more smooth."
"I really cannot recommend Mama In The Making enough, for first-time moms especially! I read a million books, looked at a million blogs, asked a million friends... but the advice I remember most was from Ashley & Mandy. They are really honest, down and dirty, and do not waste your time. The things I learned from them, I would have never picked up on my own. Zoning the home was invaluable advice that it would have taken me much longer to figure out on my own. The daily mom-hacks and videos were probably my favorite parts! Just take the class!"
We're full-time working mamas who each welcomed 3 babies in 4 years. Despite being self-proclaimed Type A, overachieving planners, we found ourselves asking, "Why didn't anyone tell us about this?!" far too often as new mamas. After watching so many friends struggle with stress, guilt, overwhelm, and non-existent me-time, we teamed up to create Mama in the Making. This program is designed to empower pregnant women with everything we wish we would have known the first time around, so they can prepare better, stress less, and enjoy more.
As an Advanced Practice Nurse participating births, breastfeeding support, and the personal self-care journey following delivery, I've seen far too many new mamas leave the hospital totally unprepared for navigating life after labor and delivery. I bring my nursing expertise and personal experience to the Mama in the Making Program to do just that. Outside of my nursing career you can find me in an early morning barre class or volunteering in my daughter’s classroom. Catch me on the weekends out to dinner with my hubby or taking our girls (ages 6, 4, and 2) to the pool!
As a former Sales Executive for Google, I balanced the births of three babies with business travel, speaking engagements & client deadlines. Surprised by the number of scenarios I was unprepared for, I became passionate about arming other mamas-to-be with the strategies, solutions, and perspectives I wish I would have known the first time around.
Outside of the corporate world, my claim to fame is delivering my little guy Mikey (see picture!)... at home... by myself... unintentionally! My three kiddos are now 5, 4, and 2, and in addition to getting my feet wet in school activities (hello, Lunch Lady!) I never miss a weekly date night with my hubby!
"I am beyond impressed with the entire program. I feel more prepared for motherhood than I ever thought possible. Things that seemed scary and overwhelming before I now feel informed about and ready to handle! I'll be recommending this to every mom-to-be from here on out!"
"I am SO grateful I took this program, and would recommend it to any first time moms-to-be. I learned so much valuable information. Knowing what to expect and how to tackle the situation with proper tools is priceless. "
"This program is a MUST. I took a birthing and breastfeeding class enrolled in this program -- Mama In The Making was definitely the most helpful."
Mama In The Making covers the things no one else is telling you. We give you the REAL REAL and arm you with proven solutions to navigate the universal stress-inducing scenarios all new mamas face. Inside this fun, self-paced program, you will learn how to:
Sleep deprivation is inevitable as a new mama. But there ARE strategies you can put in place TODAY, before baby arrives, to ensure you maximize sleep once you bring baby home. You'll learn the all-too-common Sleep Gremlins that prevent most new mamas from getting more sleep, and what you can do to avoid them.
For many women, delivery is the most significant physical experience of their lives. You'll not only learn strategies to ease and speed your recovery, you'll also use our checklists to stock your bathroom with essential supplies and optimize the key postpartum "zones" in your home, before baby arrives.
Welcoming a new baby can create stress in even the strongest relationships. We'll give you the specific questions you need to discuss with your partner before baby arrives, to align your expectations and get the support you need. We'll also give you specific tips for making your partner feel involved and adored from Day 1.
Colicky or not, all babies fuss! Many of us have had little-to-no hands-on experience with newborns before welcoming our own babies to the world. You'll learn the top reasons babies fuss, AND our best tools to soothe and lull them to sleep. This section is priceless -- it will leave you feeling more confident and help you avoid the negative spiral of emotions (think: inadequacy, guilt, or shame) so many new mamas battle.
Too many women let their "me-time" and their sense of self slip away after baby arrives. Not our members! We'll help you define your self-care non-negotiables, communicate them with your partner for support and accountability, and make them happen with our time-management strategies for balancing baby, career, me-time, and more!
Breastfeeding is one of the biggest concerns for many women we work with. Our NORTH Breastfeeding Method will arm you with the strategies, solutions, and support you need to maximize success and minimize stress around breastfeeding. But we'll also help you prepare a Breastfeeding Backup Plan, so you're not left frantically Googling at 3am if you need one.
"What a great idea...with a two week old at home those are all questions that have crossed my mind."
"This is amazing! This is definitely an area where women need more support and TRUTH. Love this!"
"This is so needed! We need all the help and support we can get during these new and fragile stages!"
"This would have been so helpful when I was a new mom. If I could tell a new mom one thing, it would be that she needs to rely on her “village,” and don’t be shy about asking for help."
