Hi, I'm Valerie


I'm a Certified Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, and mom of 3 (including identical twins)...

I’ve spent 8 years showing hundreds of parents what the heck to do with their squirmy little newborns.

Whether you have a partner or you’re a single parent, raising a baby takes a village (even if it’s a socially distant village) and there are many ways to get the support you need.

Traditionally, there is not a lot of postpartum care for adoptive parents even though your need to care for your newborn is the exact same.

And that’s why I took all of my experience serving families in the first few months of their child’s life and I created an adoption-specific newborn care class just for you whether you have a partner or are adopting as a single parent!

- Libby Denniston, Lifetime Adoptions

"Valerie's program is not like anything I've seen offered in the adoption world!"
