My Story

Hi! I’m Lara. Owner of Beyond the Bump Education – I’m working to empower Canadian Parents just like you on their journey from Birth to Parenthood!

Lara Proud, BN RN
Lara Proud, BN RNOwner of Beyond The Bump Education

As a local Registered Nurse and Mom, I know the challenges that parents face in Canada. I have created this entire program from the ground up because of the challenges I personally faced and what I was seeing happen over and over with new parents around me.  Providing services online creates an accessibility to new parents that otherwise would be very difficult to obtain for those in rural areas and busy people that need more options.

I am a Mom to a very busy boy and a tireless dog, a wife, and have a Bachelor degree in Nursing with more than 7 years of relevant experience . I have worked in Labour and Delivery, Community Health in Northern Outpost, and in Emergency. In order to use my title as a Registered Nurse, my company has undergone a detailed review by the New Brunswick Nursing Association. This means this practice must adhere to the Canadian Nursing Code of Ethics and the New Brunswick Standards of Nursing Practice for all prenatal healthcare provided to the public. Beyond The Bump Education is also fully ensured to operate within Canada.

Beyond The Bump

Beyond The Bump™ Education was born from my experiences in communities across the country and abroad and the growing need for a change in how we approach prenatal education. I started my career with a volunteer position in the Dominican Republic with an organization that works with impoverished Dominican people and Haitian refugee communities. During a mother-child clinic I was coordinating, we came across a little boy who was only 6lbs 2oz at nearly 3 months old; Jameson quickly became the reason I was there. We brought him to the hospital and found he was severely anemic and allergic to the formula he was being given. I spent months going to their village to give him medication and do teaching with his mother (as I learned Spanish). Jameson grew quickly and is 7 years old this year!! Because of him, a new prenatal program in their community was developed and has graduated hundreds of women through it. My experience with Jameson defined my passion for educating parents for the health and well being of our children.

This experience, along with my own pregnancy, have been huge motivators for this dream of mine to come alive. I love to teach and I firmly believe that all parents should have access to reliable information that empowers them to make educated choices for themselves and their children.
