Birth, Postpartum & infant care
I'm Amy! Born and raised in New Jersey, my husband and I made the jump to Houston with our dog in 2018. I was burned out from years of event planning and corporate life, so I changed paths and stepped back into the world of creativity and play that my soul craved: nannying. While babies and kiddos will be an everlasting passion for me, I still felt I wasn’t reaching my higher purpose. I had an epiphany while on a trip, when I was called to support these same parents I nannied for but at a different stage in their growth- as they are welcoming little ones into the world and during their transition afterwards while they experience those first days with their new baby. I am passionate about birth education & advocacy, reproductive justice, holistic health and dedicated postpartum support. As I started my doula journey almost 3 years ago, I was disheartened by the lack of postpartum care and information readily available and normalized within our communities so I'm driven to change that for every family I work with. I believe parents should have continual help throughout pregnancy and throughout as much of postpartum as they individually require, and that they should always feel respected, supported and heard. I provide nonjudgmental care and welcome every person of every shape, size, religion and lifestyle into my heart! When I'm not hanging out with babies, parents and families, you can find me reading any number of books on my nightstand (the stack is currently 7 high), playing softball, working out with my husband, snuggling with our dog Maximus, attempting to garden or whipping up a new recipe in the kitchen.
