Pam is an expert on newborn sleeping and eating patterns and helped me get a regular routine established with our son. Thanks to her guidance, he was sleeping through the night by two months old and now has a healthy cadence to his eating and sleeping throughout the day. Pam was a great help to me in many other ways too, such as showing me how to safely use a baby sling and helping with the baby's laundry and washing dishes while I took a much needed nap. Pam made those early weeks as a new mom much more manageable. I highly recommend her to anyone with a newborn.
Pam has been a huge part of our lives since the birth of our first child, when she coached me through the basics of nursing as my La Leche League leader. When our second child was born via VBAC, Pam was right by my side throughout the labor and delivery, advocating for me and offering unwavering, tender, and empathetic support. And six years later, after we'd brought home our third son (aka The Sleepless Wonder), Pam came to our rescue yet again with simple strategies that immediately resulted in improved sleep for our whole family. Pam brings many, many gifts to her work as a doula: an uncanny ability to assess and respond to baby's needs; an intuition for identifying the household tasks that will be most helpful to exhausted new parents (without even being asked); and a warm, loving demeanor and sense of humor that puts both babies and parents right at ease. But I think her most precious gift is the way she builds the confidence of new parents, helping them to feel comfortable and successful in meeting their babies' needs. Once you meet Pam, you will never want to let her go - we haven't!! There are no words to recommend her highly enough.
