About

My name is Cecilia, I am from Mexico and I’m a postpartum doula and a mother. My work with babies began when I became a nanny 20 years ago. I’ve been supporting families with infant care in the Bay Area for the last 12 years. I have always been the happiest taking care of babies and their parents. I have a natural ability to provide a calming presence and soothe newborns.

I am fiercely passionate about the importance of postpartum wellness, and it is truly an honor to be able to support families during a time that is both challenging, and amazingly beautiful.

Postpartum Support includes, but not limited to:

- Postpartum recovery support for birth parent: help with postpartum comfort and pain relief.

- Assistance and guidance with newborn care such as diapering, swaddling, bathing, feeding, babywearing and comforting.

- Lactation support / bottle feeding support: If you're chestfeeding I will assist by setting up a comfortable feeding station with drinks and snacks on hand, help you with different positions to promote a good latch, burping the baby and putting the baby back to sleep after. If bottle feeding, I can feed the baby and take care of the rest.

- Preparing simple nourishing meals and snacks.

- Educational guidance: providing information and resources on baby care, nutrition, lactation and parenthood.

- Sibling care: helping siblings adjust to the new family member and assisting with their care and activities.

- Pet care: walks and feeding.

- Household Assistance: laundry, light housekeeping, washing and sterilizing bottles and pump parts, organizing the nursery, restocking diapers and baby supplies.

- Running errands: grocery shopping, buying any items needed for postpartum care or for baby.

- Discussing any worries parents may have as they settle into newborn life.

- Nonjudgmental emotional support, listening and helping to process the birthing journey.
