At 40 Winks: Newborn Care it is my mission to provide growing families with non-judgmental support and evidence based knowledge and resources throughout the perinatal period. As an Advanced Newborn Care Specialist it is my goal to develop an environment that will promote and establish healthy and sustainable sleeping habits. I will work with families to create a nurturing and stimulating environment to promote healthy mental, physical, and emotional development. As a Postpartum Doula it is my goal to help ease the transition into parenthood and guide families as they’re trying to establish their “new normal.” I will provide them with evidence based information and give emotional support so that they can make the best informed decisions for their family.
I am passionate about finding ways to help families get care and support during the postpartum/newborn period. It is my goal to establish an income based scholarship program to provide care to families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access support during this time. I am also passionate about helping families with premature babies, multiples, and families/infants with special needs. As my nephew was a foster-to-adopt baby, I also understand how much support non-traditional families need during this period as they try to build a nurturing environment and healthy bond with their baby. Ultimately, I am very dedicated to finding new opportunities to learn and stay up to date on best practices. In order to accomplish these goals I plan to take additional courses on multiples and premature infants, car seat safety, sleep coaching, full-spectrum/grief care, adoption doula care, safe sleep practices, lactation education, etc.
