Welcome! I understand how overwhelming it can be in those early weeks and months. You are not alone. I bring a calming presence to your home, helping you relax and recover knowing your baby is lovingly and skillfully cared for by a multi-certified expert.
Decades ago, I began caring for babies and learning what makes them "tick". As a mom and grandma, I understand the needs and concerns of new parents and the importance of having a positive and healthy postpartum experience. I thoroughly enjoy helping new parents enjoy their first months with their new baby.
Increasing my knowledge of what constitutes the best possible care often leads me to intensive training beyond what is necessary in current newborn care strategies and techniques. I am proud to hold multiple certifications in the newborn care industry and continually stay up to date with AAP guidelines and CDC recommendations. I am passionate about expanding my ability to help my clients and their babies have the best possible outcomes. I provide care for families in any location, including Minnesota, Florida and provide travel care internationally.
