New moms have a novel service they can tap into to help them in their parenting journey: The Mama Coach, a global team of registered nurses who use "empathy + science" to educate and support new parents.
Madison Fournier of Manchester learned about this network and the innovative in-home care model after her son's birth in 2019.
As a new mother, there were large gaps in care and an overall lack of support for new moms that surprised her. She founded her Mama Coach practice to bridge those gaps. Madison has partnered with multiple pediatricians, obstetricians, dentists and physical therapists to support parents.
“I’m asking pediatricians, ‘what are you seeing and what do you need more of?’”
Madison offers individualized in-home care, as well as group seminars, to educate parents and support specific concerns from lactation to understanding newborn sleeping schedules to the most-popular topic - potty training.
In-home support starts with an initial call and assessment. From there, Madison works with families to create a customized plan of care considering where the child is at developmentally and emotionally, what the parent’s goals are, and what progress needs to be made. Once the plan is started, Madison provides support virtually through email, Google docs, and phone calls. Most care plans start at two weeks and can be extended for as long as the family feels necessary.
Madison provides support to families of all types.
“I am happy to work with any type of family, regardless of where that family is coming from: birth, adoptive, foster care and surrogate, families. It’s all about supporting that family unit, whatever that family unit looks like. I love the challenges that come from each of those scenarios.”
