Hi, I'm Valerie

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

Over the past 10 years I’ve had the amazing privilege of helping hundreds of parents adjust to their new family so that they can approach the newborn stage with as much calm confidence as possible. And, so that they know what the heck to do with their squirmy little newborns!

I understand the road to becoming a parent, and those first few months, are the craziest mix of excitement and overwhelm and that having support during that time makes all the difference!

It really does take a village (even if it’s a socially distant village) and there are many ways to get the support you need.

I've developed this roadmap for expectant parents because I want your pregnancy, and the newborn stage, to be a time of joy and fun not overwhelm and chaos.

I'm sharing lots of new baby info on social . . .
