I help parents of newborns feel empowered and more confident.

I have been calming babies with soothing Irish brogue since traveling from Ireland in 1994 to work as a nanny in New York and then in San Francisco. 

I am a certified Postpartum Doula, Lactation Educator and Sleep Consultant and I work with families all over the San Francisco Bay Area.

About my programs

The first six weeks can be some of the most challenging as new parents are thrust into a world with which many have very little practical experience. The baby is adjusting to life outside of the womb, feeding frequently and is often fussy for reasons unknown. Additional challenges are the lack of sleep, any lingering discomfort from childbirth, and acquiring the new skill of breast or bottle feeding.

With my knowledgeable, calm and non-judgmental support, I will help you acquire many new skills, including diapering, swaddling, burping, bathing, feeding, dressing your baby and much more, and the groundwork will be laid for future thriving of your baby and your new family. Let your entree to parenthood be a positive, uplifting and confidence-inspiring experience.

“I had learned about the huge difference having a doula could make but my husband was at first hesitant. He was concerned about the cost and wasn’t certain it was something we really needed. After just 1 week he not only understood the value she could bring - he wondered why she didn’t cost more!”
