Health Precautions & Exposure
Happy to have frequent Covid tests. I stay home as much as possible in between jobs. If I have to go out I mask up and sanitize frequently. My husband works from home so our exposure is low. I prefer to have groceries delivered as opposed to going to the store. I only work for one family at a time to limit exposure.
Hello; my name is Diane Sirpenski! I am a Newborn Care Specialist with 30+ years of experience as a nanny and 6 years experience as a Newborn Care Specialist. Outside of work, I spend time walking along the water usually in my beautiful home town or spend time with my two daughters. I enjoy reading and watching hockey. I have also been fortunate enough to be chosen as a volunteer “baby cuddler” at our local women's and infants' hospital in the past.
How do you help new parents?
I strive to be a listening ear, a teacher, and someone trustworthy to take over when parents need rest. I am passionate about supporting families during this exciting and challenging period of life!
Why did you pursue this career?
I have always had a passion for babies and love to help new moms. As a mom myself, I understand the difference an extra pair of hands can make and a listening ear.
