Newborn Care Specialist & Newborn Nanny
Melissa is an attentive listener, trustworthy, compassionate and is passionate about helping families feel fully supported as they grow in their confidence as parents. Her passion for the postpartum and newborn period over the past 5+ years was fueled as she found that the delicate needs of the postpartum period tends to be overlooked and she loves being a support for families during one of the most important parts of their lives. While there are many preparations and focus are on pregnancy, birthing women can end up under-assisted during the early months after baby arrives. With that knowledge, she’s focused her work on support that comes during this wonderful, transitional period. She has worked with children for most of her life, and previously a teacher’s assistant for 4 years & a supervisor at a daycare center. She prides herself in providing the best quality care for every family she works with. Melissa believes strongly in positive parenting & the no cry method when working with newborns and children as she believes helping to create an environment that fosters love & compassion will always be a more peaceful & loving space for a child to develop and grow. She provides overnight and daytime newborn care and has experience with helping to build healthy sleep habits and routine. Melissa is a mom of two wonderful kids and has a special love and interest for newborn photography.
