A naturally nurturing personality and a degree in early childhood development led me on a path to becoming a career nanny for ten years. To aid in supporting new parents and baby in the first year following birth, I have expanded my expertise with DONA International and Birth Arts International training in postpartum doula work. I am excited to have joined this honorable profession that helps set parents up for success in their latest very important journey. Be it physical, informational or emotional, I am there to fulfill needs that may or may not be met otherwise. I am there to babywear, clean up, do dishes, accompany on field trips, feed, hydrate, write grocery lists, give hugs, coordinate meal trains, and go for walks. I supply evidence-based information that works for your family. Whether it is breast/chest/bottle feeding; safe sleeping conditions; suggesting helpful media outlets; referring to pediatricians, lactation consultants, chiropractors, dog trainers, or community programs. I am there to meet you where you are on an emotional level, with compassion, calm, caring, empowerment, giving, telling jokes, showing kindness, listening, understanding, and validating your feelings so that you can see the beauty of what I see: a person growing into their remarkable new role as a parent.
