Jill Postpartum Doula + Newborn Care Specialist
Jill has been caring for children for 25 years. She earned her associate's degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus on diversity. Jill started as a teacher assistant, then by proving her leadership skills, she quickly rose to the top and took on the role as the director. Jill came to realize that she was missing something; she wanted to work with the entire family and offer individualized love and care that every baby needs. So she left corporate America, took a leap of faith, and in 2006 and became a nanny, which then lead to becoming a Newborn Care Specialist and Postpartum Doula.
Her calm thoughtful nature and deep understanding of newborns and the postpartum period make her an asset to any family.
Background and Training
One of the biggest challenges Jill has undertaken in her long career was caring for preemie twin girls who were born at 27 weeks.
Home + Family
When Jill isn’t working with babies, she enjoys camping and kayaking with her husband Tim and playing fetch with her dogs Kyla and Murphy.
Jill provides postaprtum care for families in Boston, it's suburbs and Rhode Island. She also travels to provide live-in 24 hour care.
"Jill never disappointed" Besides the basic of infant care such as bathing, changing, swaddling, soothing, feeding - formula or pumped milk, she was an incredible help for a newer, young mom, who while workings important - needed strong communication about her babies and the ins and outs of their nights. She diligently tracked everything, diapers, ounces at feedings and sleep times. She was wonderful about communicating with me but this was always balanced with a "take charge" attitude that allowed me to do whatever I needed to do without numerous interruptions!
Jill is the most reliable and dependable person I have ever known. During her time with us, she was always punctual, a few minutes early even, and as such I was never waiting for her.We could always count on her to be there, as she very clearly understood the meaning if responsibility."
