San Francisco Bay Area - Postpartum Doula, Sleep Trainer and New Parent Advisor
A whole New Life
What to expect
Welcome to A whole New Life. My goal is to help new parents navigate through the postpartum stage with knowledge and confidence. I offer in-home visits and video calls before and after the birth of your baby(ies). I will provide assistance to new parents in many fundamental areas not taught in any prenatal/baby classes, using a very personal approach catered to you and your baby(ies)'s specific needs.
In my 10+ years as a postpartum doula, I came to realize too many parents and parents-to-be do not have the tools or experience to prepare for the arrival of a newborn or the drastic shift in day-to-day life with a newborn. Making the transition while also learning how to be a parent can be overwhelming. My goal is to ease that transition and remove the staggering unknown.
As someone who has worked in the childcare industry for the past 18 years, working with preemies, singletons and multiples... I am constantly looking for ways to improve the life of parents. As a parent myself, I know it is not easy. We tend to get advice from everyone and it can be very overwhelming and confusing..."but what is right for my child? Who do I listen to?"
These gaps of knowledge and conflicting information is where I come in. I have an uncanny ability to read babies' cues and advise new parents on what their babies' needs are and how to read those cues - whether it be cue relating to sleep, gas, hunger, lactation or the hundreds of other issues confronting babies and new parents.
