Post a testimonial for Sherilyn Saporito, PCD (DONA)
Sheri was an absolute God send during my postpartum with my daughter. Our house was really turned upsidedown with the birth of our second. She was just the support I needed. She always seemed to be in tune with my needs that were ever changing by the day. She could sense when I needed to be fed, when I needed sleep, or needed an ear to talk to. I must say she is also an excellent cook. I was following a mixture of confinement practices and she was willing to learn the recipes I provided. She was a true baby whisperer with my daughter and kept her comforted so I could get valuable sleep. My toddler absolutely adored Sheri, he would ask for her and was excited to see her after preschool. As a person without much of a support system, I was not used to having someone I could lean on and ask for help; I was nervous going into it. Sheri made it so easy, and to be honest I felt truly cared for and it really meant the world to me! I wish I could have booked her for every day of the week instead of 3.
For my second baby, I knew I needed more support. Sherilyn was critical to finding out rhythm in those first wild weeks: helping to ease infant tummy troubles, troubleshoot latch issues, and even sleep arrangements. Beyond that, Sherilyn kept me sane and cared for by allowing me to sleep and shower while she made sure I had healthy meals to eat. So glad we had her and could not recommend her calm, reassuring expertise enough.
Sheri has been a dream come true! Her energy is very kind and loving. She is amazing with my son and a huge help around the house as well. Sheri is also very knowledgeable with both baby and postpartum care. Highly recommend her!
Sheri was so instrumental as we came into our roles as new parents, and I recovered from childbirth. She gave us support in every way we would have needed it — from tips that actually helped our baby sleep, to preparing meals for me, and helping me learn how to use a breast pump for the first time. She also has a really kind and calming presence about her. Simply put, I couldn’t recommend her more!
Sheri helped us with a smooth transition from newborn to infant phase after the birth of our daughter, and we don’t have the words to describe how grateful we are to have her. New parenthood was exciting but also exhausting. It was so great to have someone like Sheri who is patient and knowledgeable to take care of our baby girl, so we can take naps and rest. We have a ton of questions as first-time parents, and it is so reassuring to have Sheri around to address our questions and concerns. Sheri is reliable and responsible, always on-time, and very flexible to work with. She took extreme cautions with Covid during the holiday seasons, and we appreciate that a lot. Other than taking good care of the baby, Sheri is a true multi-tasker who would help us make delicious meals, keep the laundry going, and declutter the house. I experienced some baby blues in the early days, it helped a lot to have Sheri around to chat with. She provided a lot of resources about baby feeding, sleeping, and breastfeeding. Despite how knowledgeable is, we are so impressed that she still keeps learning. We are so thankful to have Sheri and we highly recommend her to any family who is looking for help with newborns!
It was such a joy to have Sherilyn work with our family in the weeks after we welcomed our first child. She was reliable, knowledgeable, and kind, and very flexible and attentive to our family's needs. Her presence was warm and reassuring. She was able to teach me about the care of a newborn baby, and thoughtfully (and patiently!) answered my many questions. This helped give us confidence in our ability to face new challenges with our new family member. I would recommend her to any new family welcoming a baby into their midst!
