Laura P

Hello my name is Laura and I have been working with families to guide their infant and childcare needs since December of 2002. My experience with multiple families has led me to adopt an open view of how infants/ children are best cared for. While I am knowledgeable in the various ways that infants are cared for, I am not married to any particular approach. Families often have varying techniques so that it is important for me to embrace their approach and offer guidance when appropriate. 

I utilize knowledge from my experience over the years as well as my educational experiences. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in psychology. As many are aware, studies in psychology include theory regarding various parenting techniques as well as the scientific findings that support/reject the use of such theories. I feel this allows me to be better prepared to give guidance for families who seek it.

In my experience I find that parents often have a good grasp on what they want their family environment to feel like. This helps to give me a platform for assisting families with how to accomplish their goals. Evaluating what to expect and planning how to approach it, regardless of the specifics, is often the most valuable tool to achieve a smooth transition. I look forward to helping your family experience a peaceful and loving transition while welcoming a new member into the family.

Lactation/feeding consultant

I am the mother of three children whom I’ve had the luxury of nursing, each for over a year. Training and experience has led to collaboration with mothers in their nursing endeavors. Whether a parent chooses nursing or bottle feeding, careful planning can lead to a rewarding experience for baby and mommy/daddy alike.
