Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
I'm Katie, and I am a nanny and postpartum doula. I specialize in supporting babies and families from birth through preschool.
I'm a mother of two school-aged kids, a DONA-trained postpartum doula, with extensive breastfeeding knowledge. I have had constant working experience with newborns (including multiples and preemies), infants, and children for over 25 years! I have worked with children with special needs including ADHD, failure to thrive, sensory integration disorders, and motor/cognitive delays.
A postpartum doula nurtures the whole family after birth or adoption. "Mothering the mother" to help with healing in the postpartum period, supporting parents as they develop into their new roles, breastfeeding and bottle-feeding support, sleep strategies, newborn care education, respond to signs of postpartum depression, an extra pair of hands for outings, childcare, light housekeeping, laundry, meal prep, and errands.
