Jaimie Gehring has been working with the Lakeland Centre for FASD for three years as a Mother To Be Mentor. The area Jaimie serves is St. Paul, Frog Lake and area. As a MTBM Jaimie provides one-on-one support to women who are pregnant or have recently given birth and have used drugs and/or alcohol anytime throughout their pregnancy. The one-on-one support can include but not limited to accessing financial supports, housing supports, Child & Family Services involvement, Court proceedings, doctor appointments, etc. The one thing Jaimie loves about her job is that clients trust her, even when they do not trust anyone in their life.
