Whether you are welcoming your first baby or your fifth, if you're having one baby or multiples, as a Postpartum Doula and Certified Lactation Counselor it is my honor to come into your home and make this time a little easier!  


"We cannot recommend Valerie enough.We expanded our family through adoption and we had less than two weeks to prepare for the arrival of our newborn twins. We were looking for a caregiver experienced with multiples, and Valerie was one of our first calls.She had such an authoritative and calm demeanor that it immediately made us feel more confident and secure. When you hire Valerie you are not just getting a loving caregiver for your children, which she is, you are also getting a 24 hour consultant and coach, baby whisperer, and expert."

- Satya & Krishna's Parents

"Hiring Valerie to help care for my twin boys is in the top three best decisions of my adult life. Followed closely by marrying my husband and buying a Dyson vacuum cleaner."

- Leo & Archer's Mom

"Valerie is so knowledgeable, attentive to the baby and we feel so fortunate to have found her. Our son sleeps better and has all the right habits now for successful sleep progression, and we are much more comfortable in all aspects of parenting because of Valerie. We owe her a lot for guiding us through such a difficult time."

- Leo's Parents

"I had such a great experience working with Valerie!! Her services were gifted to me from a friend at my baby shower. Best Gift Ever! I thought I knew what I was getting into with baby number two but our little lady turned out to be nothing like our son. Valerie was beyond helpful in those early weeks helping us navigate our breastfeeding issues."

- Avery's Mom

Hi, I'm Valerie.

I'm a DONA Certified Postpartum Doula, a Certified Lactation Counselor and the mother of three, including a set of twins! It's my hope that my years of training and experience can help new families as they adjust to life with their new baby (or babies)! 
The first three months, or the fourth trimester as it's often called, are an exciting, hectic, exhausting time for new families.  Enlisting the help of a Postpartum Doula can help to make that time a bit less stressful.
As a Certified Lactation Counselor I am able to provide support and answer questions as you and your baby acclimate to nursing if you choose to breastfeed.
By allowing me to assist with newborn care during the night and to help with household tasks and organization, you will have more time to spend with your baby, older siblings or to catch up on sleep. 
I understand the challenges that new families face. It has been my experience that giving families support and encouragement during the first few months after their baby (or babies!) arrive can make all the difference in the world!

"At 3 months postpartum I was diagnosed with postpartum depression. I needed help and comforting all at the same time. Valerie dove right in with a positive, nurturing and knowledgable personality. She was never judegmental with any of our parenting decisions, but provided necessary insight and advice where she felt it could be of help (or asked for!). I could tell she cared about us and the happiness of our family. All of us!"

- Evan's Mom

"Valerie is an amazing doula. This was our fourth child, and we quickly realized sleep was also important to keep up with the other three children during the day. Our time with Valerie was outstanding, and we fully trusted her with our newborn and giving her nightly baths. Even having three other children we were still able to learn many things from Valerie as she is full of knowledge."

- Sarah's Parents

"Valerie was there for us the moment our son was born coming to our home and helping us all get situated and assisting with breastfeeding. Like most babies, our boy lost weight post birth and our pediatrician advised possibly supplementing with formula. Valerie helped me through this (my milk came in late) and 24 hours later, at our follow up pediatrician appointmen, our son had gained 4oz!! Overall, Valerie is awesome! Having her help in those first few days was priceless and we are so thankful to have her knowledge and assistance! "
