The Parenting Cove is a business that emerged from family and is dedicated to birth education, strong partnerships and strengthening your family’s tool-kit. We are passionate about three things: partnering with and supporting expecting mothers and their partner, building strong and informed parent partnerships, and facilitating strong networks of support for our most vulnerable Moms of Promise (teen moms).
What drew Rodney and I to this work? Experience is a great teacher. Having partnered together to deliver two little humans taught us a lot about preparation and patience. It also illustrated, better than anything else could, the miracle of compassionate support. This is how The Parenting Cove was born.
Miatheresa gave birth…and then we gave birth. The Parenting Cove, is a midnight meditation, a lullaby and a gift. We had the help of family throughout our journey and we still found ourselves wondering if we could “do this.” We have a profound desire to support other mothers/families as they grow through this journey. New beginnings are less scary with support.
As a mother of two, a wife, and career woman, I was led to doula/birth educator work through my personal journey with work/life balance. Driven to have it all, I quickly realized I needed support. I was introduced to a doula and that changed my life.
My passion and commitment as a doula/birth educator is to offer this life changing experience to other expecting mothers and their partners. At The Parenting Cove, LLC we offer mentoring, teaching, and nurturing. Above all, The Parenting Cove, LLC is committed to supporting you.
I am a certified doula/birth educator trained through BEST doula. In my free time I can be found reading, helping mothers get organized, or working as a leadership life coach.
I have come to know and understand that parenthood is a major life transition and one of the hardest challenges you will ever face. Hiring a doula/birth educator ensures that your foundation will be strong and your toolkit equipped to handle the journey.
I was drawn to become a certified BLS trainer after my son had a choking experience. I was sitting on the couch and he was playing on the floor and suddenly he became quiet. At first it seemed as if he fell asleep while playing and then his lips started to change colors. I was frozen in time.
Most parents feel that they are the protector of their children and charged with providing basic life needs and safety. I never once doubted my ability to fulfill that role until that day. I realized for the first time that I was not trained nor was I equipped with a safety toolkit.
The very next day I looked online for a training and certification course. I found greater purpose and decided to become licensed EMS Safety trainer. An infant/child can choke or stop breathing at any time. Knowing what to do to is essential.
