I am a Philadelphia native who lives just outside of the city now in South Jersey with my husband Joe and 4 kids, Sofia (13), Joey (11), Roman (8), and Adrien (5). Health and wellness are a big part of my life in caring for my family and clients alike ! Birthing and parenting my own children has ignited a passion for preparing expectant and new parents for both their birth and parenting journeys. Along my own parenting journey, I became overtaken by the pressures of our society on parents but new mothers specifically, the recommendations and opinions from everywhere can be overwhelming ! Thankfully along the way, I was able to let go of the standards and expectations our culture puts on young families and move forward, following my own instincts! I quickly realized that it's not children who need to be trained, but parents who need to be taught that it's okay to listen to their heart and instincts. I am passionate about guiding new families on this journey from birth, into the postpartum and beyond!
My goal is that the families I work with become better informed, knowledgeable and empowered to follow their own innate inner voice. My approach as a Baby-Led Sleep Coach is to always have the parent-child relationship at the heart of my work with families. This attachment based care and guidance will help facilitate sleep challenges to fall into place. I strive to help pregnant people and new parents find their inner voice telling them what works best for them and their family and empower them to listen to it !
