Client Testimonials for Adriane Stare

When I found Adriane, I was really struggling to deal emotionally with c-section recovery, my son's extreme colic, and feeding issues resulting in an intense exclusive-pumping regimen. Adriane was a god-send! Besides helping me to generally eat better, rest, and brainstorm ways to more efficiently manage my pumping schedule, she taught me baby-wearing techniques that helped to calm my son during his meltdowns. Her positivity, encouragement, and kindness got me through a really tough time, and helped me to build up my confidence as a mother. I've already recommended her to my friends who are currently pregnant, and only wish I had brought her in sooner!!

Adriane has a dynamic skillset like no other! She made her time spent with us count in a plethora of ways that further uplifted our wonderful birth experience and helped round out and steady our emergence into the postpartum phase: from offering earnest emotional support, to bringing a warm & light-hearted energy into our space, to strategizing and anticipating our family's diverse & specific needs, she was both productively savvy and emotionally nimble. No one can wrap a baby like this woman, but she sure as hell will teach you a thing or two about baby carrying that will be life-changing! No doubt you will always want more of her, but then I think to myself how I'd hate to keep her from enriching another deserving family...and so we begrudgingly agree to let her go... into the wind.
