Are you taking the less travelled roads in parenting?

If so, you might agree that at times it can be hard to get advice and support that fits within your parent style. You may feel stuck as a parent or you may feel alone or overwhelmed.

You may feel like you are swimming against the current when it comes to parenting and feel you need a bit of support.

It could be about co-sleeping, or breastfeeding full term, or maybe even tandem or triandem nursing. Maybe you want help or advice about parenting without punishments or rewards. Maybe you are wanting to unschool ? Do you need advice on natural birth? or working through birthing fears? Or do you want to attend one of my babywearing or EC workshops but live too far or the dates don’t match up with your needs?

Don’t wait to get the help and support you need. I am just one email, phone-call or chat away!

One-on-one mentoring offers you an opportunity to discuss your concerns, have questions answered and can strengthen your ability to make the desired changes in your life. Depending on your situation and needs, I can help you:

  • increase your confidence as a parent
  • let go of unrealistic expectations
  • rely less on consequences and rewards to change behaviour in children
  • see parenting in a different light and make things feel easier
  • find the right carrier for you or help you wear your carrier
  • help with elimination communication
  • help with preparing mentally for birth

    [blockquote cite=”- Marie Pier” type=”left, center, right”]”J’ai beaucoup apprécié le support de Mélissa, fort généreux, basé sur
    une grande expérience, le tout appuyé de  connaissances bien
    palpables. Je me suis sentie comprise et accueillie dans ce que je
    vivais (enjeu de sommeil avec bébé).
    Pour des besoins ponctuels où se crée un échange plus dynamique, plus
    vivant qu’avec un livre ou un site web.”

There are three ways to get mentoring: E-mail: I will answer 1-2 questions per e-mail depending on the length of the response. If you have one or two questions, one e-mail should be sufficient and follow up e-mails are included for quick clarifications. If you know you will have more questions, or questions within different subjects then you may pre-pay for a block of five e-mails or go per e-mail with the fifth being free. Phone/Skype chats: No limit to the questions that can be answered when we are talking. Skype video chats are very helpful when in comes to technical advice like EC or babywearing whereas phone chats are more fluid when it comes to more serious discussions. Both phone/Skype chats are done in 30 min increments or you can choose up to an hour at a time. If you want ongoing support or have many questions and you know that a hour just isn’t enough, you may pre-pay for 3 hours and use those 3 hours over a month in 30 min or 1 hour blocks.
