About Stephanie

tighter shot of headshot

Hiya! I’m Stephanie, Founder and Creative Director of Mama and Baby Love. I am mama to Penelope, wife, teacher, mama helper, writer, yogi, herbalist, homecook, and mentor, and I am so glad you are here!

 

I help moms make sense of motherhood. I teach women the skill sets they need to be healthy, happy, and successful mothers. And, most importantly, I provide support. Mothering mothers is what I do best.

 

I work with moms through my summer program, Healing Summer Camp for Mamas and because my time is limited and I devote myself to my clients, space is limited in the program.  Enrollment for 2015 is already closed and the program is in session now but enrollment will open up again next April. Be sure to sign up for my email newsletter (you will get my online class, How To Stop Feeling Overwhelmed for FREE!) if this program interests you to stay in the loop.  Being on my email list is also a great way to stay current with new articles and other awesome things I love to share about.

M+BL is about motherhood and healing. My childhood and teenage years were full of abuse and neglect. At 17, I vowed to heal myself for my future family; I knew I could be a healthy mom and wife. Motherhood has been a tough road for me, from miscarriages, to extreme difficulties with breastfeeding, to Penelope’s Sensory Processing Disorder, but I have learned so much from these struggles. For the past 15 years, through my healing practice, my blog, my books, eCourses, and private mentoring, I have helped other moms learn how to do the deep inner work that being a good mom requires. I believe working on our junk, our baggage, is the greatest gift we can give our children.

All these trainings and certifications have greatly influenced my life and parenting style. I am so passionate about sharing information with other mothers, promoting healing, and supporting them along their parenting and personal growth journey. I offered these healing modalities to clients because they have worked really well for me and those mothers I have worked with. While I no longer have a private practice, I love mentoring mothers in my healing summer program.  The curriculum I created for the program is the culmination of 15 years of research and experience. Click here to sign up for my email list if that program is of interest to you-enrollment is only open once a year.

In the mean time, I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, it’s really the only social media I am super active on right now, I love it!

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at info@mamababylove.com.  I work full time as a preschool teacher during the school year and I am busy in the summer with my summer program and of course, I’m busy with regular family/mom life, so please know I may not respond to you right away and I am doing the best I can to respond as quickly as I can.

Thank you for reading and being here!  I look forward to getting to know you in the future.  You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Lots of love to you!!
