I was born with a deep love for babies. As a young child whenever my mother took me to a store, I would always find the person who had a baby and make friends with them. I wanted 10 children, but to their fathers relief, was blessed with four. My children are all grown now but when they were babies, I was a very overwhelmed, young mother. My second son suffered with very severe colic and I didn’t realize it at the time but I had postpartum depression. I learned everything the hard way with many tears. I have been a postpartum doula and newborn care specialist for over 10 years now. It is so fulfilling to be able offer young mother’s the wisdom, care and support that I wish I would have had with my own babies. Time goes by so fast. I am now 50 years old and have been caring for young children professionally for over 26 years. It gives me great joy to mentor new mommies and daddy’s too for that matter. I am profoundly blessed by all the families and babies that I have been allowed to nurture and love. I look forward to getting to know you and your precious little one.
