• Welcome to One Way or A Mother LLC,
      where you will receive support around your journey to motherhood.

      Does it seem the more you push your way towards your baby, the less success you experience? Even though you have achieved amazing results in your life, this process seems to operate under a different set of rules.

      You may have noticed…

      • You’ve lost your sense of humor
      • You’re frustrated and irritated a lot of the time
      • You feel drained most of the day
      • You’re losing hope of ever becoming a mom (or a mom to more than one child)

      Everywhere else in your life you’ve worked hard to get to your level of success, and yet this baby eludes you. The same skills that helped you achieve your career goals do not apply here, which is incredibly frustrating and confusing.

      Learning to find your inner happiness along the road to your baby may feel like the last thing on your “to do” list, yet that is a key to my clients becoming moms. Know that the same drive and motivation that work in other areas of your life can now be shifted in a harmonious new direction. You don’t have to change who you are at your core. You can use your same strengths but in a new light.

    • Believe Your Baby is on it's Way to You


      This journey to your child is such a complex thing. It is so much more than physical. It is emotional, mental, and spiritual. It involves your finances, your employment, your relationships, and your self-esteem. The journey can be filled with great joy and sometimes loss. Why go through such a journey without a guide?

      Fortunately, there is a more conscious, fun and peaceful way to motherhood. Think of me as your Conception Concierge. Together we will navigate the myriad of choices from holistic fertility techniques to medical interventions to adoption. My goal is to make this journey a lot easier, faster, and far less stressful. Whether you have just started the journey or are down the path, we will start where you are and chart a path to success.

      If you’ve been struggling to conceive, Jenilyn Gilbert is the woman for you!  Jenilyn was recommended by a friend and from the first time I heard her sweet, caring voice I knew she was going to be a part of my journey. I had been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, working with doctors for months with no results and getting extremely frustrated. It’s then I decided to try a fertility coach...

      “You will all be mothers,” Jenilyn told us, a group of battle fatigued infertile woman, “How you get there might not be the way you imagined it, but you will be mothers.” She said it with such certainty and authority. At the time I had been battling infertility for 6 years and I was extremely skeptical, almost angry that she would say something like that. How could be so sure? I guess I was angry because my hopes had been raised many times by multiple infertility “cures” and I was determined not to be bamboozled again by such claims...

      The fertility journey was a tough road for me. I experienced over two years of fertility doctor visits, expensive meds, and endless frustration with “unexplained infertility”. In the end, the doc declared there was nothing more to be done.

      This was when I turned to Jenilyn. What a kind and bright soul she is. She truly understands this crazy journey and guided me out of the dark hole...

      Most people don’t have any idea that secondary infertility exists.  When someone has a baby or a young child, the first thing others ask is, “When are you having another?”  If the mother responds that they are struggling to have a second child, the typical response is, “Well, you got pregnant before, why would it be an issue?  Maybe you just need to relax.”  But, secondary infertility is a real thing, and it can be emotionally devastating...

      Mothering After 40

      I was just at a family gathering when one of my cousins could see the tired look on my face as I was chasing my 2 year old around the room. She asked me how I was and I said, “Tired.” She responded by saying, “That’s why you have your kids in your 20’s and not your

      Calling All Angels

      I first learned about angels as a small child.  My mother told me that I had two  guardian angels who were there to protect me.  I don’t recall a specific story upon learning about them, as I feel I have always known about them.  They brought me great comfort as I grew

      It Takes a Village to Make a Family

      The word “yoga” means to yolk or make whole. When practicing yoga you are helping your four bodies (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) to become whole. Yet, when you are working so hard to create your family this is the last thing you may feel. Many women have shared with me

      Baby Blues Burnout

      I was reading an article last week about doctor’s experiencing high numbers of burnout in a US News web article, which made a lot of sense to me. I always feel stressed going to my doctor. It’s a lot of hurry up and wait and once the doctor arrives I seem to forget all of my questions
