Hey there, I’m Valerie!

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

I understand that traditionally, there is not a lot of newborn education for adoptive parents even though your need to care for your baby is the exact same.

And that’s why I took my years of experience helping people prepare for, and adjust to, life with a new baby and I created adoption-specific resources just for you!
