I transitioned from a decade of nannying to becoming a postpartum doula five years ago to focus on supporting new families adjusting to having a newborn. Each family is unique, so my support varies based on their specific needs, offering tailored care to empower and assist them through the beautiful but challenging journey of early parenthood.

Care philosophy

My postpartum doula care philosophy is centered on providing compassionate, nonjudgmental support to new parents. I aim to empower families through practical assistance, emotional guidance, and evidence-based information, fostering confidence, well-being, and security during the postpartum period.

I am a certified postpartum and infant care doula. I am working towards becoming a full spectrum doula and have offered labor doula support. I have 6 children of my own (natural deliveries) and believe that my experiences have fortified my ability to offer valuable support. I decided to start my practice focusing on postpartum care since I know how challenging it can be welcoming a new baby into your home (especially with siblings). There has historically been so much focus and attention given to the new baby and mothers can be disregarded and made to feel like they need to be able to spring back into action - far too quickly. It is my hope that the families I assist can relax and take in the early days knowing that someone is there for them and that their homes will continue to be cared for while they bond with their baby (babies).

Care philosophy

I believe we should move away from approaching birth with fear and welcome it with joy - armed with support and resources to try to attain the experience YOU want. I am an advocate for natural birth but I am here to support whatever experience you wish to have. The fourth trimester deserves just as much attention if not more. My goal is to help support women in ways that are truly meaningful.

Two major things happened within me at 10 years old when I bottle-fed my baby sister for the first time. One, I knew I wanted to be a mother, and two, I wanted a career working with young children. As a teen, I worked for various families and babysat for them before becoming a mother myself. From there, I mostly babysat for friends and family. Two years ago, I decided to make the switch to becoming a birthworker. I take a trauma-informed, individualized approach with all my clients to provide a unique experience tailored specifically to each family. I am here to support the mother and however that may look for her on a particular day. I follow a gentle parenting approach and believe in meeting an infant's needs when it becomes known. I provide all my clients with up-to-date evidence-based information and physical and emotional support. I also help support families with light household duties, meal prep, breastfeeding support, and goal setting.

Care philosophy

Compassionate and empathetic support and guidance for first-time mothers, mothers of multiples, or twins. A positive and gentle approach to empowering the motherly role. Family support in adjusting to new life and routines. Lactation support.

    I have known Wendy for a few years now and I can honestly say she is truly a blessing to work with. She has a kind soul, a soft touch and is beyond empathetic. I feel my kids are 100% safe when they are with her, cause she’s not only professional but she takes each child under her care as her own. She is loving and playful and my kids love the days they get to be with “Miss Wendy”. I would recommend her any time!

I'm a ProDoula Certified Postpartum Doula/ Infant Care Specialist serving San Diego county. I have also attended DONA approved Introduction to Childbirth for Doulas and am currently in training to be a certified Infant Feeding Specialist Prodoula. I currently specialize in overnight support in the San Diego area. I am committed to continuing to learn and expand my skills and knowledge to ensure that I am a valuable resource and support to people. My passion for offering support in the birth space started after I had my first child where I suffered great trauma from birth to postpartum. Lacking support during birth and postpartum made me realize how much support is needed in the birth space and beyond. Keeping a heart-centered approach to holistic support is my goal and I aspire to keep this in mind as I serve families in this space and beyond. I feel beyond grateful to be able to support families and be able to continue to serve the community with my knowledge, skills, and passion.

Care philosophy

I want to be a vessel of support for people and meet them where they are in their journey. I passionately advocate for informed consent, bodily autonomy, and cultural relevance. I want to offer support not only for physical needs but also aid in mental, emotional, and spiritual healing through acknowledgment of the whole person (mind, body, and soul) for Mother, Baby and Family

There are some situations in which your insurance company will help you cover the costs of childcare, and this can obviously help those parents that want their baby’s needs met but might not be as financially secure. Unfortunately, a night nanny usually isn’t covered by insurance.

However, there are some cases where a night nanny is covered by insurance. For example, if your child health issues, parents may want to check to see whether their night nanny costs can be covered by their insurance company since their role is more directly related to your child’s health.

There are many situations in which parents might consider a night nanny in Hollywood, FL. First, both parents might be working long hours, which means that neither of them have the time to actually bathe/feed/swaddle the child when necessary. Some parents might already rely on friends and family, but realize that they require more help when it comes to their children.

A night nanny is also often most necessary in situations where there are twins or triplets. These parents simply may need extra help to care for these children night after night, and night nannies can help take over some of the workload. For first-time parents, for example, having to care for multiple children for the first time can be overwhelming and stressful. Other parents might also be dealing with mental health issues or postpartum depression.

A night nanny is expected to care for the baby as the parent would if they were awake. Night nannies wash baby bottles, prepare feeds, sterilize pump equipment, and more. Overnight nannies also bathe, feed, diaper, and swaddle the baby, as well. A night nanny can also provide care in situations where the mother might be recovering from a C-section, for example.

In many cases, the process is simple: a parent often hands off their baby to their night nanny so that they can get some much-needed sleep. The night nanny remains at the household until the parent(s) wake up, and then night nannies leave once the parents can take over child care duties.

Every family’s needs are different, but night nannies are expected to burp the baby, bathe the baby, prepare formula, and provide other nanny duties. In summary, overnight nannies in Hollywood, FL are expected to keep the baby fed, comfortable, clean, rested, and dry.

However, night nannies are not expected to complete household chores that are unrelated to baby care.

Some night nannies might have certifications such as nursing certifications or sleep certifications. Many night nannies are often involved for the first six weeks of childbirth, and some of them remain with parents for months.

For example, some night nannies might have specialized skills for children aged 1-2, while others may be more experienced with children aged 3-4. Obviously, the responsibilities of these night nannies in Hollywood, FL differ depending on the age of the children that they are supervising.

There are some families that try to compare the concept of a “night nanny” to an “overnight babysitter.” The main difference here involves the level of commitment that a night nanny has to a newborn, versus a babysitter that may only have to provide minimal care to a newborn or child.

A babysitter is often not responsible for actually creating/fixing meals for newborns, washing their baby bottles, or doing their laundry. While a babysitter might monitor a newborn or make sure that they are safe – a nanny might spend time soothing a newborn, swaddling them, or taking care of their meals and clothes. A nanny has more obligations than a babysitter, and are considered more of an “extension” of the parents.
