Providing guidance and education to help parents get more sleep, have less stress and
enjoy the journey of parenthood!
Are you a new parent looking for help understanding your newborn baby, caring for your multiples, or getting your baby or toddler to sleep better?
You've come to the right place.
Over and over new mothers say, "I spent so much time focusing on the pregnancy and didn't put any thought into what to do once the baby was here." And let's face it, parenting a newborn is one of the toughest jobs there is. You may wonder, is your baby getting enough milk, how do you know when to feed versus take other comfort measures, will you ever not feel so sleep-deprived. And, unlike almost any other job you might have, this one doesn't come with one size fits all operating instructions. Gone are the days when our mothers, sisters or other significant women lived nearby and helped us ease into motherhood. That's where we come in. Literally!

What clients are saying:
"My husband I are blessed to have a tremendous support system through our parents and siblings, and I believe we could have easily relied on them for help and advice in the early days. However, having an objective non family member who is truly an expert in these early days and weeks with a newborn was invaluable. There were no arguments between us about whose mom may have the better advice and we also did not second guess each other." ~ Ellen P., Raleigh, mother of twins and a singleton
"Pam brings intelligence, compassion, and a heartfelt interest in the well-being of families to her role as a doula and breastfeeding educator. She has the uncanny ability to intuit what kinds of help are most needed without being asked – an immeasurable gift during the foggy, sleep-deprived days of early parenthood! She also has a special ability to help anxious new parents discover their own innate wisdom and skill, fostering confidence and enhancing the bond with their babies. Pam's natural sense of humor, patience, and obvious enjoyment of her work are just the icing on the cake. She has been nothing short of a gift to our family through our two sons' early days, delivering us across rocky early days of nursing, and helping us to maintain a functional household when our own extended family was not available. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
