Hi. I’m Alexia Maman from Being Maman.
Welcome to my page!
I’m a mom. You’re a mom. Let’s be friends.
On Being Maman you will find a community of moms, a treasure chest of information and resources, and a real person who admits that she also wore adult diapers, cries in the shower (when she takes one…), and falls apart – all while fiercely loving the little human she made.
Let’s get to know each other. I’ll tell you about myself and I would love to hear from you and where you are at in your life – seriously, email me!
So this is me.
I’m a 27 year old from Montreal. I am a Jewish Canadian of Moroccan descent. My husband and I are first time parents to our son David. I do not enjoy long walks on the beach because I really don’t enjoy walking, unless it involves discovering and exploring. However, I’m an avid reader and experienced traveler. I have been to 26 countries and 124 cities. I’m currently CEO of a very active boy and bustling household, as well as a Youth Protection Caseworker for Batshaw Youth and Family Centres – which is child protective services in the province of Quebec.
Professional Qualifications and Experience
I am a social worker, specialized in Maternal Mental Health, and educated in Youth Protection and Conjugal Violence. I have a Masters in Social Work and a Bachelor in Sociology from McGill University, and a certificate in Maternal Mental Health and Perinatal Mood Disorders from Postpartum Support International. I am also certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapyby the Ruis McGill CBT Teaching and Research Program.
I have worked as a social work intern in the maternal wards of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, which include the antepartum, birthing centre, postpartum, and NICU units. I am currently a case worker for Quebec’s child protective services at Batshaw Youth and Family Centres.
