I believe it takes a village and am so grateful to be given the honor of supporting parents through the incredible, challenging, miraculous journey that is parenthood.
Throughout the years, and in my daily life, moms, dads, and caregivers have come to me with some great questions. Every now and then I feel compelled to share the answers to some of these relevant questions in hopes that they will benefit others.

Between 6-8 weeks postpartum I can begin guiding you through a 20min choreographed flow, simple enough to do in your own time. I’m also happy to answer questions or address concerns you may have about your newborn in the hour we spend together.
*Accepting donations for this offering via Venmo.
Getting Started: In addition to any details you wish to share, I invite parents to email a log of 2-3 days with their baby to maximize our time throughout any consultations.
It’s helpful if your log includes:
Eating times (nursing-how long? bottles-how many oz?)
Sleep times (how is she falling asleep? where is she sleeping? for how long?)
Activity time (what type of stimulation is she getting? ex. tummy time, out for a walk, visiting friends?)
I also look for regular bowel movements and wet diapers, so please include this as well.
Reviewing the log allows me the chance to understand your baby and lifestyle, and identify relevant topics for discussion.
Questions? Comments? Please contact me. I am happy to address any questions or concerns.
