Meet Shelley Whynot Durham Region’s Parenting Mentor

Like you, expert parenting mentor Shelley Whynot has experienced frustration and confusion over the seemingly limitless expanse of conflicting information available to parents about pregnancy, childbirth, sleep, education and everything else in between.  With over fourteen years of experience coaching and empowering families, Shelley’s view is that parenthood can be hard at times and all parents and their children need a little guidance now and then.

Unlike many sleep and educational consultants, Shelley appreciates that parents are the best experts on their children, and takes the time to truly understand her client’s unique needs as a family. She then shows them exactly how to execute a personalized plan and listen to their intuition. No matter what dark and scary tunnel parents find themselves in, Shelley is there holding the light and guiding the way.

Kind Words About Shelley From Previous Clients

We had the pleasure of taking Shelley’s prenatal class which was absolutely fantastic! Shelley provided tons of useful information that made the birthing process so much easier as she ensured we had all the information to make informed choices. I highly recommend Shelley, she is AMAZING!!! Carrie R.

Prenatal Childbirth Prep

My husband and I got a lot out of taking Shelley’s weekend course. We both went into the course very nervous and looking to learn as much as we could about what to expect for the birth. Not only did we learn great information and practical tools about the birth process, but we also learned so much about breastfeeding and the newborn stage. Needless to say, we feel much more prepared for the birth of our first child and better able to work as a team through the upcoming months. Thanks Shelley! April H.

I had private Lamaze® lessons with Shelley and she was also my doula for the birth of my son. Having her by my side and having her support helped make it an amazing experience. She was knowledgeable and most importantly she supported the decisions that I wanted. Carolee P.
