It is very important
to find a care provider with whom you are very comfortable to nurture and protect your little one. I believe, in my years
of childcare, I have been able to help new mothers and fathers feel just a little more confident in going to work –
knowing that their little baby is safe and in a loving environment.
I have extensive experience
with infant care. I am a mother, so I have lived through the good time and the hard ones and learned from experience with
my own son. I have also cared for many special little babies. Furthermore, I have extensive training in newborn care, breastfeeding,
early childhood development, and CPR & First Aid certifications. I trained with Doulas of North America, the premiere
doula training organization, and earned my Certified Doula certificate. Newborn and infant care is a very important part of
DONA’s training. As a doula, I meet with my clients after they give birth to help them with basic newborn care and breastfeeding.
I have also taken classes at Valencia Community College as part of my nursing degree in early childhood development. I am
certified in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid through the Red Cross.
Though all of the certifications
make me more than qualified to care for infants, I believe that the experience and loving care is really what is important
when I am entrusted with your little one. I have had moms tell me that is just puts them at ease knowing they don’t
have to remember to tell me exactly how to warm a bottle or to make sure there are no choking hazards in reach, because it’s
something they know I am familiar with.
