Birth & Postpartum Doula, Lactation Counseling & Newborn Care Specialist
A Little About Myself
I have been a childcare provider since 2002. My experience includes caring for newborns, multiples, special needs and children of various ages. Being a certified lactation counselor, I have extensive knowledge and expertise with breastfeeding, sleep and feeding schedules. With a Bachelor’s degree from Northeastern University in Human Services and a concentration in Family and Children’s Services, I am able to gently guide and support new parents as they transition home with their newborn. My approach promotes healthy newborn sleep routines and enables families to create a schedule that best meets their needs while also feeling reassured with the love and care their newborn is receiving.
I have an active role in my community through volunteering within the maternal and child health sector. I help provide guidance to families regarding their newborn’s needs and I mentor peers who have interests in maternal and child health. Currently, I peer counsel at the Vital Village Network, a network of residents and organizations committed to maximizing child, family and community well- being. I am a board member of the Massachusetts Lactation Consultant Association, an active member of the Boston Breastfeeding Coalition, MA Breastfeeding Coalition and DONA International, the world’s largest and most respected doula organization.
Please contact me to book any of my services. I will be more than happy to accommodate any special requests, or specific family needs.
