Testimonial for Grady Shipley

My transition to motherhood came with unexpected challenges and I would have been completely lost without Grady. I felt so comforted by her extensive knowledge about evidence-based newborn care and was deeply grateful to have her guidance while navigating the complexities of the postpartum period. She always had informed answers to all of my questions and taught me practical skills to deal with any situation that might arise to improve my sense of self-efficacy.   She was diligent about explaining the “ why” behind all of her techniques and walking me through how to implement them on my own to help me build confidence as a new Mom. Whenever my family was going to be on our own for a weekend or leave for a trip, she went out of her way to ensure that we were prepared and felt supported. Having Grady by our side in the early months allowed us to have a smooth experience adjusting to parenthood as we learned how to feel comfortable in our new roles.

Adapting to life with a new baby was difficult but Grady was able to ease the transition for us and made everything so much more manageable. When our baby was sleeping, Grady would go above and beyond to see if there was anything she could do to make our lives easier. 

 We felt bonded with her almost instantly and she quickly became part of our family. She has changed the way that I view myself as a Mother and has taught me everything I know about taking care of my son. Her goal was to ensure that I felt prepared to handle the demands of motherhood by the time she left and I can honestly say that I feel as prepared as one can possibly feel because of her unwavering support and guidance over the last two months. I will miss her and the loving energy she brought to our household tremendously. Grady had a profound impact on our family and will always be a part of our lives.
