Being the eldest of my siblings and cousins, I naturally took on a motherly role. Always wanting to take care of everyone younger than me. I remember growing up in LA, being eager to watch my mom teach Baby Care & Sibling Preparation classes at local hospitals in the late 90s. Babies and children fascinated me! I began working with children in my teen years as a babysitter for family and friends, then in 2005 while in college I worked as a nanny and a teacher's assistant at a local Child Development Center.
After having two children of my own, I realized how vital postpartum support was and that even though I had many years of working with babies and infants, I was still learning so much. Being a new mom and trying to figure out how to juggle this new chapter in my life while recovering from birth was a struggle, but thankfully I had a strong support system in place. I knew after my experiences, I wanted to be that support for other families and helping them navigate the early weeks of parenthood. Therefore, I changed my career path to the postpartum field with a focus on newborn care and lactation education.
In early 2017, I started my career as a Newborn Care Specialist and Lactation Educator Counselor. I've had the
pleasure of caring for singletons, preemies, twins, and triplets all while ensuring their parents were well rested and feeling very confident in their parenting abilities. Some of my client's have never held a baby nor changed a diaper, so I make sure to involve parents in everything that I do. I also take pride in supporting breastfeeding moms overcome any obstacles that may arise once mom and baby are home. However, I also lovingly support families who choose to bottle feed or formula feed their babies.
My promise to you as your Newborn Care Specialist is to provide you with non-judgmental support, guidance, and education while you navigate the early months of parenthood.
