The Fisher Family (Ethan)

Veronica is an amazing baby nurse. We felt like we could trust her from the moment we met her. On a personal level, she is warm and energetic and intelligent. Professionally, she is incredibly experienced and holds multiple certifications (as a Doula, Newborn Care Specialist and Home Health Aide, just to name a few).

Our son was born 3 months prematurely and came home from the hospital needing to be handled carefully during feedings, as he had a tendency to choke badly and hold his breath at times. Veronica is a lactation specialist, and it was very comforting to have her sitting by my side for some of those early breastfeeding sessions at home (we were always monitored by nurses at the hospital). She also fed him bottles of my breastmilk at night with his prescribed vitamins so my husband and I could get some much-needed rest. We were very nervous about having anyone else feed the baby at first, since he needed to be "paced" in a specific way, but Veronica is experienced with preemies and we were relieved to see how easily and lovingly she handled the task. Veronica also held our son upright after those middle-of-the-night feedings to help him with his reflux, which was a huge help.

I also have to mention that one of the best things we learned from Veronica was how to give an infant massage. It's such a loving way to bond with our baby and our son loves it!

My husband and I highly recommend Veronica if you're looking for a postpartum doula/baby nurse. It's like having a sweet, calm, non-judgmental member of your family proactively helping you so you can fully enjoy those special early days with your baby
