Laura Hellfeld

Laura is a nurse and children’s yoga instructor. Most importantlyshe is a mom of two boys who are the namesake of KoKoPie.
KoKoPie was created out of the accumulation of my science education, nursing career, yoga, and parenting experience. Laura has always loved learning about how to best take care of someone with considering both mental and physical health. Through the years, She has been lucky enough to have worked or volunteered with a large variety of people which includes in the critical-care setting, hospice, those experiencing homelessness, LGBT-QIA, and mental health.
Her nursing career went on hold as her family welcomed their first son and they moved to England. She didn’t give much thought into following any parenting styles when KoKo was born. Laura was lucky and had time off of work to spend all her days with him. She went to toddler groups, sports classes, and friends’ houses during the week. Weekends were family time and they typically went exploring the countryside. Then things started to get hard. KoKo stopped wanting to go into all of the familiar places he had been going to for over two years. He seemed to not want to get out of bed and his emotional ups and downs more frequent. She didn’t know what to make of it but chalked it up to terrible twos and  being over tired and now pregnant with his brother. JPie was born and KoKo receded even more. In contrast, JPie was born with a larger-than-life personality. We realized that KoKo is autistic and they were facing the challenge of how to manage a family with people who are very fundamentally different from one another. ILaura needed to learn how to parent in a way to respect and support each person in the family.
She realized that she needed a framework to wrap her head around in approaching parenting an autistic child. She immediately went back to  her science texts for their familiarity and guidance. From there, she realized that  her yoga and meditation practices could greatly benefit the whole family. Before she knew it, she had developed a lifestyle of living and parenting for both their children. Laura created KoKoPie to share what she had  learnt. “KoKoPie is for any family but I am particularly interested in children with developmental, behavioral, and emotional challenges. I aim to provide education and support to parents, child-care providers, and practitioners in a variety of modalities. I believe that we all have huge potential in working with our or other children. This education will help emotionally, physically, and intellectually support a child. All children can benefit from a lifestyle of self-awareness, emotional management, and positive, energetic connections. Our family has found great happiness together and I know that other families can too.”
