Better Dayz with Baby: 

Postpartum Doula Services

The Care You Deserve

Every baby and their family is special. Having a newborn will be a wonderful event, but it will also be incredibly exhausting and sometimes overwhelming. Postpartum care specialists are the best kept secret for your recovery from birth and the early days of parenthood. Postpartum carers and educators help you and your family learn to navigate life with your new baby, while at the same time, help you feel nurtured and supported each step along the way.

I also recognize that not all families are created through the expected birthing experience. I welcome families of surrogacy and adoption, as well as LGBTQ and chosen families. No matter how your family was created, I am ready to meet you where you are and support your individual needs and goals.

About Me

Who I Am

I am a trained Norland Nursery Nurse having studied at the prestigious Norland Training College in Bath, England. Please visit the college website for more information on my training


After working in the UK and Europe as a private nanny and newborn nurse, I moved to the US to continue my career. This move ultimately led to my marriage, 3 boys and my continued stay in the States.


My training and consequent life experiences now enable me to confidently, sympathetically and with no judgement, help new parents navigate the first few weeks after returning home from a hospital or Birthing Center.


What I Do

Postpartum Support

In our initial meeting during your pregnancy I will take time to get to know you, your concerns about having a baby, and what you are hoping to gain from my services. I'll provide everything you require to make sure your experience of arriving at home with your newborn is as calm and positive as possible. 

I will guide you through learning the basics of newborn baby care giving you the confidence to be great parents. Helping you learn how to nurture your newborn, and care for their every need, from diaper changing to bottle or breast feeding, to sleep routines. 

 Let me help you become comfortable and confident with your newborn baby.  Also let me guide you through the changes every woman makes emotionally and physically after having a baby.

My services are perfect for the couple who do not have extended family to help them or just need an extra pair of helping hands whilst you recover from delivery and bond with your baby.
