Olivia Grijalva Bishop - Postpartum Doula, Nanny, Mother
It is my absolute joy in life to be supportive to families while on this journey which welcomes new life; not only to the baby, but the birth of new parents as well.
I have provided nurturing support to many families long before I transitioned into the postpartum doula world. I have been a nanny for 15+ years, specializing in new families including infants. Throughout my career as a nanny a lot of those families continued to grow and allowed me to gain ample experience in newborn care and siblings.
In addition to my professional experience, I am also a mother of 2! I breastfed my first one until 2 years of age and continue to breastfeed my 1 year old. It was through my own birthing & postpartum experiences which led me to my path as a postpartum doula. Even as a well seasoned nanny and having witnessed postpartum up close many times, I could not do it alone and needed support in ways I could not have imagined.
I strongly value empathy, compassion, kindness and non-judgmental support in the work I provide. I believe that there is not a right way but a way that works best for each individual family and strive support their preferences.
