Meet Paula

Dear Parents,
There is no one best way to parent your baby. Being a parent requires on-the-job training. New parents can become so overwhelmed by all the well-wishers, "best" family advisers and all those baby books that before they've even brought baby home, so much has already interfered with their own ability and intuition to parent. It is imperative to take suggestions as just starter tips from which you can grow and develop your own style, one that best suits your baby's temperament and your own unique personality.

Dear Parents,
There is no one best way to parent your baby. Being a parent requires on-the-job training. New parents can become so overwhelmed by all the well-wishers, "best" family advisers and all those baby books that before they've even brought baby home, so much has already interfered with their own ability and intuition to parent. It is imperative to take suggestions as just starter tips from which you can grow and develop your own style, one that best suits your baby's temperament and your own unique personality.
As a Postpartum Doula, I come on the scene to relieve mom of her household chores and interferences that drain her energy away from her newborn. I have helped budding families adjust to their new family dynamic for more than three years, now. I have cared for six newborns and their siblings on my journey toward certification.
I help fathers understand the value of their role by creating an environment that allows mother-infant bonding to mature during the early weeks at home.
I encourage mothers to affirm dad's involvement by allowing dad and baby to "figure things out" on their own so mom can get him hooked on baby care. Baby care may not always come easily for some fathers who come from a background where nurturing a baby was left primarily to the females in their family.
If there are siblings in the home, I help them foster an early friendship with baby by engaging them as little helpers, at first, and then allowing that role to evolve into that of little teachers.
As a Nanny, I come equipped with all the baby care basics. I am very nurturing, responsible, patient and very creative.
I am the mother of two grown children. My son, 26 years old, lives and works in New York City. My daughter, soon to turn 19, is carrying a double major in college and lives on campus.
I welcome the opportunity to interview via SKYPE and I am not opposed to travel to interview in person, should that be required of me.
Thank you for your interest.
Paula
