Testimonial for Dannah Norris

TLDR: I can't say enough good things about Dannah. She provided incredibly helpful postpartum support for my partner and I (millennials) with her professionalism and kindness, catering to our personal preferences and needs.


I was completely overwhelmed after giving birth to my first child, especially when I was also struggling to make decisions from various sources of information. Breast feeding or bottle feeding? How much should I feed the infant? Originally from China, I was given tons of weird restrictions during postpartum period. Analyzing conflicting ideas from googling while taking care of the newborn was not fun. Dannah’s visit changed everything. She calmly showed me and my partner how to do things right and efficiently with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. When we had different opinions, we could always count on Dannah for the best recommendations. She is very communicative and resourceful, and knows how to leverage the recent technologies. My numerous questions via email and text messages were always explicitly answered with details and reference links. For example, once my mom insisted that I should stop eating fried food since my breast milk passed the “fire”(huoqi) to my baby and caused his acne. I asked Dannah, and she said nope, the newborn acne was due to oil glands development and should be gone soon. There were tons of moments like this and I’m grateful that we had her before my mom came to help – I taught back my mom the knowledge I learned from Dannah instead of debating what works the best for the kid. 


We think Dannah is super cool, detail-oriented, and reliable. She was the first one we could trust to leave our newborn alone with. As first-time parents, we gained confidence of raising an infant and our life with the little one became much easier after several weeks. Dannah significantly facilitated that transitioning period. We were so lucky to have her!
