Testimonial for Debbie Castelbuono

I truly cannot say enough good things about Debbie. I had twins in September 2012, and Debbie worked with us for several months following their birth. From the moment I had my babies, Debbie was there for me—supporting me through some of my challenging post-partum transitions and helping me get ready to bring the twins home. Once we were home, Debbie was a godsend. For starters, she was incredible with the babies—natural and caring and comfortable even with my preemie twins. I learned a lot just from watching her. But even more than that, she was incredible with our whole family. From helping us with practical things like setting up our Pack-N-Play, to helping me verbally process my post-partum emotions, to answering my husband’s questions, to assisting with breast-feeding and bottle-choosing, to advising us on what to ask the pediatrician, Debbie was there for us in every possible way that we needed her. I always looked forward to when she would arrive for day help or for overnights; her arrival was always like a breath of fresh air (and she was always punctual and professional). In addition to being empathic, I found Debbie a be especially non-judgmental. I never felt pressured to do things her way, and she clearly wanted to help me do whatever I felt was best. That said, she is exceptionally knowledgeable, and I loved how she could answer all my questions thoroughly and usually with a lot of scientific backing. If she didn’t know an answer, she looked it up. I valued how detailed her explanations were and just how much she knows---about a lot of things baby-related. We feel truly lucky to have had Debbie become a part of our family and recommend her enthusiastically. She is a gem.
