Newborn Nanny/Postpartum Doula/Family Assistant

I have worked with babies and young children for the past 17 years, starting first as the neighborhood babysitter, then working as a nanny all through college and finally starting my own practice as a birth and postpartum doula and newborn specialist. I LOVE working with parents and their children because it is the most gratifying work in the world! I am also a mother to two wonderful daughters, so caring for babies truly comes from the heart for me. As my children transition into being in school I am looking to continue my work with families, but on a more full-time basis. I believe the first years of a child's life are such an important time and those involved in that child's care should be attentive, caring, compassionate and nurturing. This is how I parented my children and how I look forward to caring for yours. I understand on a very personal level how difficult it can be to leave your baby in someone's care, whether you are returning to work full-time, part-time or just need time to yourself so that you can feel like a whole person. I will work with you in whatever way you need to help you feel comfortable, whether that means texting you photos or videos of your baby several times a day, bringing your baby to see you on your lunch break or keeping a detailed log of everything we do while you are out. I am very comfortable working in other peoples homes and have extensive experience cooking nourishing meals, doing light housekeeping, running errands and caring for pets (if you have them). Food and health are extremely important to me. I cook with whole foods and I am also able to accommodate any food allergies and/or dietary preferences as I have experience working with families with many different eating styles. I have a strong personal interest in natural health and alternative healing modalities. Working with families is a true calling for me. I have devoted my life to this work and continue to learn and stay on top of the latest research regarding newborn care and early childhood development. I am dependable and extremely hard-working and can offer several references. I am very excited to find a family to work with and look forward to hearing from you if you feel like we would be a good fit!
