Hiya!  I’m Stephanie, Founder and Creative Director of Mama and Baby Love, I am a mentor, healer, writer and businesswoman. I am so glad you are here!

M+BL is about real food, motherhood and healing. My childhood and teenage years were full of abuse and neglect and when I was 17, I vowed to heal myself so that I could be a healthy mom and wife for my future family. Motherhood has been a tough road for me, from miscarriages, to extreme difficulties with breastfeeding, to Penelope’s Sensory Processing Disorder, and I have learned so much from my struggles.  For the past 14 years, through my healing practice, my blog, my books, ecourses and private mentoring I have helped other moms heal so they can be the best moms they can be.

 

The short story of my private practice is that I am holistic healer and I specialize the health and healing of mothers and sexual trauma survivors.

 

The long is story is that I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Yoga Instructor, Certified Itsy Bitsy Yoga Facilitator, Certified Infant Massage Instructor, Certified Prenatal and Postpartum Massage Therapist, Certified Reiki Master Energy Healer, Arvigo Mayan Abdominal Therapy Practitioner, Trauma Release Excercise Practitioner, Certified Doula, Ordained Minister through Alliance of Divine Love.  I also apprenticed with an Acupuncture Dr and learned Cupping, Acupressure and allergy clearing healing techniques.  I was a Birthing From Within Mentor from 2005 to 2010.  By the end of 2014, I will be a Certified Prenatal and Perinatal Psycology Educator and be a Certified Functional Diganostic Nutrion Practioner.  All these trainings and certifications have greatly influenced my life and parenting style. I am so passionate about sharing information with other mothers and helping them to heal and supporting them along their parenting and personal growth journey.   I offer these healing modalities to clients because they actually work.

 

I am also on the Board of Directors of Best For Babes Foundation as their Director of Social Media + Marketing. Best for Babes is the only mainstream non-profit dedicated to helping parents to Beat the Breastfeeding Booby Traps®–the barriers that prevent informed feeding decisions and prevent moms from achieving their personal breastfeeding goals. I donate 5% of M+BL profits to Best for Babes (and an additional 5% goes to my local Catholic church parish).   And lastly I am an investor and the Director of Online Community for WholesomeOne.com, a fantastic resource to help people find natural, holistic ways to heal from pain and experience good health.

 

In addition to my deep passion for helping moms heal, I am a practical and organized gal.  I share a ton of tips and tricks about how to run a household efficiently and still manage to take care of yourself.

 

And I love to cook and live as healthy as I can be but I like to do it in the easiest and most time effecient way possible and I ain’t perfect.  I live by the 80/20 rule and I do the best I can. I am known around the intranets for my healthy slow cooker freezer recipe and other healthy grain-free/gluten-free recipes.
