“Being a first time mom can be very scary at first! Marci at Ask Harvard Mama has helped me in so many ways! Whenever I have a question, I book a session with Marci and she helps me find a solution. Some of my questions have been- What stroller is best? Should I co-sleep? Should I put him on a schedule? Should I let him cry it out? When will he start teething and rolling around? I have read many different articles and books about all of my concerns, but nothing compares to the answers I received from Ask Harvard Mama. Marci’s passion is children and she has given me many tips on joyful parenting. She answers all my questions with love and magic! I strongly recommend her to all of my friends!” Janessa Spivey – Salt Lake City, UT
“I am very fortunate to have Marci’s valuable advice in rearing my children. I am a mother of six children. For years I have used her expert counsel for managing the many different phases/seasons/journeys of my children’s development. She always has a fun and creative solution to help me manage different situations. There is never any criticism or negative judgements on her part no matter how crazy my questions may be!
My oldest child just graduated from UCLA. My next two are in college. My fourth is in High School and my two youngest are in elementary school. Marci has been a ray of light with her suggestions. She’s funny, understanding, warm and friendly and extremely educated. She’s very passionate about helping children. My two youngest children were adopted from an orphanage in Haiti. They have had different developmental issues than my other children stemming from malnourishment, attachment issues and other behaviors. I have been extremely fortunate to have Marci’s constant guidance and my children have a vastly benefited from expert advice!
Ask Harvard Mama is an invaluable service provided to parents, as we all want well adjusted, self-sufficient children that truly make a valiant mark on humanity! I strongly recommend consulting with AskHarvardMama. It’s one of the best decision I’ve ever made as a parent.” Marlise Cusick (mother of 6) – Provo, UT
“Ask a Harvard Mama is one of the best resources around for any new Mom. I admit, when I had my son, I thought I would sail into Motherhood with ease. That was not my experience. I had a long bout of postpartum depression and I was plagued by self-doubt and fear every day. Marci gave me the hope and joy I needed to see the fun I could have and that I could still be my own person. She gifted me with communication techniques and verbiage that was fun and accessible and didn’t make me feel like I was quoting some stale parenting book to my kid. She is truly a magical gift to Moms (and to the world, especially her own kids). I am so grateful that she helped me (and continues to help me) with all the hundreds of questions I come up with regarding my son’s… everything.” Jennifer Tracy (mom of 1 very rambunctious 4 year old boy) – West Hollywood, CA
“I am truly grateful for the words of wisdom from Marci at Ask Harvard Mama. I consult with her regularly about my two boys, and I am always thrilled with the results. I recently had a meeting with my son’s teacher who made me feel that my son’s speech was delayed and my only option was speech therapy. I left the meeting thinking I had failed my child and felt lost. I called Marci and she gave me the comfort and encouragement I needed. She helped me realize that my son’s speech was not far from the expectations for a four-year-old, and gave me several helpful strategies to help support his speech development. After working with him over the past few weeks, I have noticed that his speech is improving. The best part is that he and I are having fun together! Thank you, Harvard Mama, for all your advice and support! As kindergarten starts, you will be hearing more from me!” Karly Anderson – Orlando, FL
“Every student has individual & unique learning needs. A consultation with Marci infuses magic in the assessment process, particularly when developing an Individual Education Plan. Marci’s expertise, working in tandem with families and schools, is a wonderful enhancement to any education program.” Cathryn Newton (Clinical Social Worker) – Providence, Rhode Island
