Health Precautions & Exposure
I’m working with one family as a nanny to their toddler through June 2021.
I am a birth doula, infant care specialist and a night nanny who is currently also working toward certification in postpartum doula care and childbirth education. I moved to Boston from New York right before the pandemic! I received my certification as a birth doula with the Long Island Doula Association about four years ago and have since been present at a multitude of births. I did all of this while studying at Hofstra University. I received my Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies with a minor in Biochemistry that has allowed me to provide culturally competent care with experience in scientific research that continues to allow to me to critically read contemporary research to guide my evidence based care. My continued training has allowed me to provide trauma informed care as well as a multitude of comfort measures.
How do you help new parents?
I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see the journey through pregnancy, birth, and into parenthood to be incredibly special and incredibly personal. As a Doula I offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after the birth. I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to expectant individuals and their families in the Greater Boston and North Shore areas.
Why did you pursue this career?
I began my journey as a doula in college, when I originally volunteered to help families during the transition to parenthood. As I began to learn more and more about providing this care, I came to fall in love with helping new parents thrive.
