|Why are you passionate about newborn care?||
My passion stems from being able to provide security & care during the first few months of life for baby and mommy. The first few months are cruticle times for life that should be handled with delicate care to insure healthy habits and growth. Being able to reduce stress for new mothers by providing them with tip, education, and support.
