Congratulations on your new arrival! I am Amanda. I am a Certified Labor Doula, Certified Postpartum Doula and a Certified Lactation Educator through CAPPA, (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association). I began my birth and postpartum profession in 2003. I have been able to take continuing education classes throughout the years to keep up to date on the new AAP guidelines and evidence based research when it comes to Childbirth, Postpartum and Newborn transition.
I am a Colorado native and I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1996. I have 2 wonderful boys, ages 15 and 10. Since I was a child I have loved newborns. I have always wanted to work with expecting families and their babies. I feel so blessed to have this job I love. I teach Infant Care Classes, Breastfeeding Classes and I am also in the process of my Happiest Baby on the Block Instructor Certification. I am CPR certified as well.
I believe every family is different. Every family has different needs and desires when raising a family and I feel it is my job to educate, support and nurture the families I work with.
I have experience with singletons, multiples, preemies, babies with reflux, and babies on oxygen. I have worked with babies that have heart monitors and sleep apnea, torticollis and also hemangiomas. I have the ability and resources to help mom cope with sleep deprivation and recognize Postpartum Depression.
