Overnight CareAs a Certified Newborn Care Specialist, I support new families for the first 12-16 weeks. I help teach you day/night schedules that promote good sleep, help educate on basic breastfeeding techniques and positions, bring baby to mom to be breastfed and then I burp, change and get the baby back to sleep so mom is getting all the rest possible before the next feeding. If pumping, I clean, sterilize and prepare pump parts so they are ready for use and store breastmilk appropriately.

Postpartum Day SupportIt’s nice to know that your needs for a shower, nap and a healthy meal are being met. I’m not just someone to come in and do laundry and light housekeeping, though I love doing that as well! I’m also a listening ear and can help with your physical and emotional recovery during your 4th trimester. I have great resources for finding the right places to get what you need as well. As a Certified Postpartum Doula, I’m trained to understand what new parents and babies need!
