I am passionate about caring for babies and children in a gentle, loving, relaxed way, and helping women during their transition to motherhood by providing emotional and physical support during pregnancy, birth, and parenting. My journey to this work began when I first learned about attachment parenting and natural parenting from my own parents. My mom had a natural, amazing birth with me and my dad was there to catch me, I was constantly carried in a sling, and I breastfed until I was 2 ½ years-old. I developed a close, loving relationship with my parents.
I was always in awe of babies and felt attuned to them. I was eager to follow that feeling so at university, I did my degree Child Psychology and I studied the benefits of attachment parenting, continuum parenting, and natural parenting on babies’ and parents’ emotional well-being. I also studied Steiner Waldorf early childhood education.
Now, I have 6 years of experience caring for babies and young children using the ways of attachment parenting. I have worked in Steiner Waldorf parent-child playgroups, home daycare, nurseries, and kindergartens. I have worked as a nanny for families, caring for babies and young children aged newborn – 6-years-old.
I provide childcare and family support to families in their own homes. I continue to develop and cultivate my interests in pregnancy, birth, and parenting, and I am currently training to become a Doula with Birth Arts International.
