Congratulations on your new beautiful baby!  As you are discovering, with your bundle of joy comes a variety of new responsibilities.  As a postpartum doula I help with this major life transition in a variety of ways: newborn care, education and support, light housework, meal preparation, running errands, caring for older siblings and sleep support. 

Experience: I have worked with children for over twelve years in several roles.  I have taught preschool and kindergarten and have also been a full time nanny.  Most recently I have transitioned into my role as a postpartum doula.  For the past seven years I have focused on infant care and the last two I have specifically been a doula. 

I also have experience with families with the following scenarios: multiples, preemies, babies with torticollis, reflux, feeding tubes, colic, allergies and developmental delays.  Through my various trainings and experience I have the resources and ability to help families cope with sleep deprivation and recognize signs of postpartum depression. 

Education: I am passionate about continuing my education, and am always on the lookout for new classes that help me learn more about infants and new mothers.  I am particularly interested in preventing postpartum depression and I will be working towards becoming a breastfeeding counselor/educator.  I have been trained in the following:

  • BA in Anthropology with a minor in Early Childhood  Education
  • CPR
  • First aid
  • CAPPA Labor and postpartum doula training
  • 2 reputable Sleep Training courses

For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawn to caring for infants, but in the past few years I’ve realized how much I also love caring for new parents during such a powerful, yet sensitive transition in a family's life.  I aim for a balance of education and intuition while meeting the needs of your individual baby and family.
