First career was working in Early Childhood Education mostly focused on Infant Toddler Care, including supervision certificate.
I still remember what it felt like to walk into my home with my brand new son, completely overwhelmed with emotion and the enormous responsibility of caring for him. The fact that I had been taking care of other people's babies for more than 10 years, had changed hundreds of diapers, and loved being around babies was minimally helpful.
This enables me to support you with great compassion and respect for what I know you are experiencing. I truly want to help make it a joyous time of discovery for your new or expanding family.
