Hello my name is Janine.  

I am32 years old and a wife, mother to 5 children 15, 10, 8, 5, and 3 and step mother to 3 children 13, 10 and 7.  I have 3 children with ADHD and one with ADD, and 2 of those children also have OCD.  My step son is believed to have NLPD and PDD-NOS. I am a Antenatal/Birth and Postpartum Doula, I am working toward my certification as a Childbirth Educator and Breastfeeding Counsellor, I voluntarily provide support to women who have suffered from pregnancy or infant loss and women and their families suffering through Perinatal Mood Disorders.  I have a certificate in Foundations in Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis and Childbirth, I will be attending a course in June to become a Certified Hypnobirthing Practitioner.  Aside from my studies, volunteer work, duties as a Mother and Wife, and educating myself on my children's special needs, I sleep shower and eat once or twice a day  :)  I am busy, but that is what keeps me out of trouble.  I love what I do! I love getting involved in the community when I can and helping to build women, mothers, fathers, parents & families self esteem, confidence as parents and giving them hope when there is nobody else to offer it to them.  I take my children out on cold days to hand out gloves, hot chocolate and/or coffee to people at the downtown outdoor skating rink or outside in the downtown  who look less fortunate and cold.  My goal as a Mother is to raise my children to be loving, caring, giving, understanding individuals.  I try to teach them that education and a career is very important but respecting and cherishing humanity is the key to true success.  In the summer however, I do take my children camping, fishing, boating, to the beach and for walks by the river or the park to play, we love Jack Miners Bird Sanctuary and Collisantis and my husband and I rollerblade, bicycle or walk down by the river every night.  That is the extent of my extra curricular life.  I look forward to meeting other parents through mom2mom.

Thank you for the welcome, the kind words and the awesome opportunity to be able to share important information to families.  My hope is that it will reach many families in need and prevent tragic yet treatable and/or avoidable problems in their lives.  Again, Thank You so much, for giving myself and families this opportunity.
