Our Passion for Positive Birth Experiences

Meet Andrea

Andrea has an extensive history as a caregiver. Her love for children, especially babies, came at an early age (14) when her youngest sister was born.  She would assist her mother with caring for her baby sister.   After graduating from school, she pursued different career paths, but she always returned to her first love and passion: caring and supporting families, (her Spanish-Italian heritage attests that)!
Andrea’s call to postpartum doula and newborn care support came after spending over 20 years as a trained career nanny for infants and toddlers, supporting many diverse families. So, it was natural for her to make the transition into the doula world.  She is a CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association) certified postpartum Doula. 
After helping more families, she realized that breastfeedingsupport was an integral part of the postpartum journey, so she decided to pursue more education on lactation. In 2022 she became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) through the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice (ALPP).
Andrea is also going through clinical training/mentorship to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), the gold standard certification for health professionals working with breastfeeding families.       
She is always attending workshops and seminars to strengthen her knowledge, further her education and support families to the best of her ability.
Andrea strongly believes that the postpartum period is a special time that should be tended to with the utmost consideration. The importance of healing for the birthing parent and bonding with the new baby should be the primary concern during the postpartum period.  She is committed to guiding you through supportive postnatal care, allowing you time to gently recover from childbirth and providing companionship and reassurance in the journey into parenthood.  She will help with newborn soothing, sleep, breastfeeding and creating healthy routines. All her training and skills are at your service, so you will feel prepared and confident. Andrea also nurtures new moms and assists in both emotional and physical recovery. She also enjoys preparing nutritious postpartum meals. 

“I firmly believe that the best thing that mom can do for baby is to take good care of herself.”
