Like you, doula and newborn parenting coach Lisa Caron has seen the word motherhood defined numerous ways over the years. Is it protective mama bear? Is it let the baby cry it out? Is it all about the baby? Is it all about the baby gear? Is it all about the family?
With two decades of real-life, in-the-trenches experience coaching hundreds of women and their families through childbirth, breastfeeding, and parenting their newborn, her view is different. Lisa appreciates that motherhood is a moment-to-moment experience and not about what the neighbours or a book, say you must do. Motherhood is the choices you make, everyday. It's finding and listening to your inner wisdom. Building the community that helps you raise a strong secure child. It is about balance.
Lisa brings calm, reassurance and a patient ear to nursing mothers and babies. She helps women get up and running to meet their breastfeeding goals. Lisa has devoted thousands of hours of study and experience to become an expert in helping women be confident breastfeeding mothers.
Along with supporting new families in the comfort of their homes as a certified doula, Lisa has published two books with Dr. Lisa Doran. Joyful Birth: More Childbirth Stories Told by Doulas, and Bearing Witness: Childbirth Stories Told by Doulas. Lisa also teaches newborn baby care classes at one of Toronto’s leading maternity hospitals.
