I am empathetic, experienced, and professional certified Postpartum Overnight Doula and Newborn Care Specialist with over 18 years of experience working with infants, toddlers, and new parents. 

Caring for infants, young children and families is my life purpose and calling.  I began on my path to becoming a Postpartum Doula and Newborn Care Specialist over 20 years ago.  Having grown up in Brazil, I studied psychology in college. I then moved to the United States, where I learned English, married a U.S. Citizen, and began my career as a professional nanny in the Bay Area.  I have worked with multiple high profile families from the time their children were infants. This work often included overnight infant care and travel with the families and required that I develop a strong, trusting, and supportive relationship with each child and new parent. I have furthered my training in the wellness of children, mothers, and fathers by earning an AA in child development at Skyline College and AA in Massage Therapy, including prenatal massage. I am a Board Certified California Massage Therapist.
As a full-time professional caregiver in the Bay Area for 18 years, I have extensive expertise and knowledge of how to sense the baby’s needs and provide a comfortable and caring atmosphere for the whole family. I will help you feel at ease in your new role as a parent and offer emotional and practical support in your baby’s rearing.
I am a loving, caring, compassionate, empathetic, and calm person by nature. Most of all, I’m flexible to attend to all of the family’s needs — from infant care to any tasks that are needed in the home to support parents in their ability to tend to their children and foster a strong parent-child connection.  My goal is to assure that you have a restful night’s sleep while I care for your precious baby, and that you feel that you have a trusted, calm, and unobtrusive presence in your home that is 100% attentive to and supportive of your needs.  I am also available to answer any questions you may have about how to care for your newborn and can happily guide and mentor you in newborn care techniques, including feeding, sleep training, play, and infant milestones and development. When you feel successful, empowered, and supported as a parent and when your baby feels loved and is thriving, I am doing my job.
I look forward to meeting your family.
