Welcome Mama!

My name is Lynn Turcotte-Schuh

But my clients call me "The Toddler Trainer"

That's because I use my 10+ years of experience as a Marine Mamal Trainer to coach Mamas in better understanding their little one's behaviors so they can spend less time yelling and more time connecting.

Imagine having the skills to calm a tantrum, diffuse sibling rivalry and get your family working as a team WITHOUT raising your voice, repeating yourself 50 times or sending anyone to a timeout.


In addition to being the "Toddler Trainer", I'm also the CEM (Chief Executive Mama) & CAPPA Certified Childbirth Educator at Happy Mama Wellness as well as the founder of the Happy Mama Hapu where we are bringing back the tribe of judgement-free support that every Mama needs. Happy Mama Wellness is all about taking a holistic approach to parenting so the entire family is happy and well in body, mind and spirit.

This is my family.

My "WHY". The reason I left my career as a Marine Mammal Trainer and started Happy Mama Wellness.

This little ball of energy (aka, my daughter) keeps me on my toes, brings sunshine to every day and has taught me more about the person I want to be when I grow up than anything else in my life.

In my personal life, I love being outdoors, going on family adventures, hanging out on our wannabe homestead, game night, crochet, gardening and 90's Hip Hop. I am a huge Will Evans fan and I dance in my kitchen every day!

My Parenting Philosophy

Combining facets of Positive Parenting, Consious Parenting, Connected Parenting, Holistic Parenting and Get-Through-The-Day-Alive Parenting with the science of how ALL living things learn (called Operant Conditioning) I coach overhwelmed Mamas to better understand themselves and their child so they can spend less time yelling and more time connecting. Because, let's face it, you're busy and time is precious. I want to make sure the time you spend with your little one is QUALITY time!

My philosophy is based on the tenets of:

  • Understanding the unique developmental stage your little one is in and meeting them where they're at
  • Teaching versus disciplining
  • Mutual respect and a connected relationship
  • The family unit working as a team
  • Allowing children to make decisions for themselves within boundaries that YOU set
  • Responding intentionally rather than reacting emotionally
  • Modeling desired behaviors
  • Communicating effectively, with a non-verbal child
  • Kindness, compassion, empathy and patience

Now that you know a little about me, I'd love to know about you!

My Core Values

A Letter From Miss Nicole

"I can't say enough about how fantastic Lynn is - we learned SO much in her childbirth class. I ended up having a fairly difficult labor and delivery. Having information on what was happening and how to stay calm and manage pain was absolutely essential to both my husband and myself. We were able to go into it feeling not only completely prepared but also cared for. 

As far as her parenting support, I could not recommend anyone more. I absolutely love being part of the Happy Mama Wellness community and have learned so much from Lynn on my parenting journey. The tools she has given me to help me stay calm and understand the way my child learns and functions has truly changed the way that I parent. She is always accessible and willing to answer questions and I love that there are weekly checkins to help work through challenges.

The things that we have learned from Lynn have helped our household become a much more peaceful place. " 

Happy Mama Wellness is rooted in its mission to build a community of strong, nurturing Mamas who raise strong, compassionate children. 

Together, we master calm and connection. We learn to parent with intention and integrity. We model gratitude and we give back to the world at large...teaching our children to do the same.

Our "Mama-it-Forward, Pay-it-Back" campaign ensures that we support each other on our journey without judgement or shame while at the same time honoring the people who inspired us along the way.

At Happy Mama Wellness, we Pay-it-Back by donating 10% of all REVENUE to non-profit organizations. Check out our current recipient: Yellow Horse Equine Therapy
