Hi there- it’s Kailey! I am a Registered Nurse, Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), wife, and mama to three sweet kiddos. After becoming a Mama myself, I know just how hard navigating the prenatal and postpartum periods can be.
And that’s why I started The Mama Coach!
Through the Mama Coach, I am committed to providing families with evidence-based advice and judgment-free support. My goal is to empower parents by bringing both my experience as a nurse and as a mother to those who need it.
I love what I do and I always tailor my plans to your unique goals and values. I am here to help!!
To guide families through every stage of their parenting journey, by providing evidence informed education infused with nonjudgmental support, compassion, and empathy.
To become a recognized global team of healthcare professionals utilizing innovative practices and committed to improving the quality of life for families as they grow and evolve over time.
Our job as nurses is to listen to your priorities & goals as a parent. We will walk beside you and share in your challenges, triumphs, and promise to support you with empathy, compassion, & respect.
As you move through your parenting journey certain stages can feel overwhelming. We value creating a shared community, online and in our cities, where you are always welcome.
We support all families — as we believe every family is completely unique and deserves access to quality support. We will continue to learn and listen, ensuring our brand is thoughtful and inclusive.
You can expect us to provide you with evidence informed information in a professional manner. As RN’s, we will treat your family as unique, provide individual assessments, and determine the best plan of care to meet your educational needs.
Yes. As Registered Nurses, we have years of training on where to access credible guidelines and information. All of our programming is based on extensive research from credible sources.
Often they are — the answer largely depends on where you live and what your private insurance covers. In the United States nursing services can be covered through HSA or FSA funds.
As an IBCLC, I am able to directly bill several major insurance companies through The Lactation Network. Contact me for further information.
We get asked this one all the time. As Registered Nurses, having merely one method does not align with how we were trained in school to utilize the nursing process.
The Nursing Process is defined as, a “systematic approach to care using the fundamental principles of critical thinking, client-centered approaches to treatment, goal-oriented tasks, evidence-based practice (EDP) recommendations, and nursing intuition. Holistic and scientific postulates are integrated to provide the basis for compassionate, quality-based care” (*1).
Simply put, we will assess your child using our nursing training to determine the best way to help your family reach their goals, walking beside you all the way. You can choose us with confidence, knowing you have picked the most qualified resource to support your family’s journey.

As Registered Nurses, it is our professional obligation to manage client records and confidential information properly. We use an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) that is compliant throughout North America. Even though we share the same brand, we are all independent Registered Nurses with our own private practices. As such, we each have our own EMR that is private and secure. We do not share EMR or client information between one another without consent.
Good question! We are called The Mama Coach because years ago, when Carrie’s first boy was very small, she often wondered out loud to herself, “Where is my Mama Coach?” and “I need a Mama Coach!”. Carrie searched and searched for qualified support and realized there was a need for such support for new families. We recognize that our name can give the impression that we only serve moms, but we will continue to work and learn to ensure our messaging is clear that all people are welcome here. Parents carry a heavy load, and do it with grace. All parents deserve support, and The Mama Coach is the answer you’ve been searching for..
We do not just support moms — we help ALL people. All are welcome here, and we are committed to providing you with quality support, no matter your gender or family dynamic. As we learned in nursing school, your family is who YOU say they are.
