Tamra has had a natural affinity for babies since childhood. She has a sought after, favorite babysitter as a young teenager. Calming a new baby was second nature to her.
As a mother of 4 and ‘young’ grandmother of 9, Tamra enjoys her career of being able to help new parents have a happier and more confident beginning with their newborn.
For new parents, there are so many new and strange challenges, that all the preparation in the world may leave them feeling that they didn’t do enough to prepare for their new bundle of joy.
Many parents might not be aware of what constitutes normal newborn growth and development, and normal recovery for the mother. In the middle of all that new awareness, the factor of little to no sleep makes it difficult to feel confident in tending to all the details in the beginning.
The time frame of the first four months is so small and yet it is so important to not miss the sweetness and happiness and joy that this sweet fresh baby brings to their lives. Tamra’s role in this 4th trimester of pregnancy is to provide new parents with education, non-judgemental support and companionship.
She feels that mothering the mother enables her to recover from pregnancy to birth and focus her energy on bonding with her new baby. Helping manage the surroundings gives her and the family breathing room to adjust to a new member of the family that needs a LOT of attention.
