SoftSlumbers - Postpartum Doula / Infant Specialist / Baby Nurse / Night Nurse Services in Los Angeles, CA

Kathleen Sullivan - Postpartum Doula and Baby Nurse

A postpartum doula (also known as an infant specialist, formerly a baby nurse) is a non-judgmental woman with a quiet presence in your home giving emotional and practical support for breastfeeding and critical early care along with practical newborn care tips that helps ease your transition into motherhood.

After the baby is born, most new mothers and fathers appreciate the support of other women. Many of our new grandmothers and extended family members are not always available to help, and even if they are available many do not have sufficient breastfeeding experience to support a nursing mother.

Do you find yourself googling things in the middle of the night and finding yourself very frustrated with so many conflicting answers? If you hire me as your consultant, I am available via phone and text to answer all those questions!

I have hundreds of happy first time parents because they get the answers they need!

I am available to new parents in Southern California in both Los Angeles and Orange County, and am willing to travel when necessary. Learn more about the postpartum doula, baby nurse, night nurse services that I offer.

My schedule is often fully booked, due to my many years of experience and continuous referrals from clients. If I already have a commitment when your new one is to arrive, allow me to consult with you and recommend the perfect postpartum doula or infant care specialist to meet your specific needs.

Finding Balance

There are so many paradoxes in parenting

that it is difficult to find balance.

Some don't even try. / They just plunge ahead

ignoring the subtle whispers of wisdom. / Others try half-heartedly,

but resort to old methods / when they get confused.

But some hear wisdom's quiet voice / and make it their own.

They find strength in softness / power in flexibility / perfection in mistakes

success in failure / clarity in confusion / and love in letting go
