Hi, I'm Valerie.

I teach expectant & adoptive parents what they need to know to feel confident and prepared when their baby arrives!
I'm a DONA Certified Postpartum Doula (PCD), a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and the mother of three, including a set of twins!
For years I've worked in the homes of new families in the weeks & months after their babies were born.  I know what you need to know to make that transition to parenthood go more smoothly!
From what gear these little people require to how to care for and feed them, I've totally got you covered on this new parent thing!


"A lot of key nuggets that stuck in my head came from this course!"

It gave my husband the basics to know as he’s never been a part of taking care of a baby. It was a nerve calmer for him! For me, the course helped refresh my memory from all the babysitting classes I took growing up... though you pay A LOT more attention when you’re learning for your own child. We’ve referred back to videos multiple times since we’ve been home with our baby boy!

"I would absolutely recommend your class to anyone!"

Being a new mommy is an absolute dream. I want to thank you so much for your class. It has helped me tremendously especially with breastfeeding, an area that I was totally unfamiliar with.  I am excited for our next monthly chat. I cannot thank you enough for how amazing you are and how much my husband and I learned  from you. I would absolutely recommend your class to anyone.

"Valerie is full of experience, energy and knowledge and the fact that she is a mother of three, including a set of twins, puts her in a position where she knows exactly what your needs are."
