Why are you passionate about newborn care?
Maybe because I love to share my knowledge and years of experience taking care of children with others. Since my teen years I have always loved being around children especially babies. I enjoy watching them learn and grow. I also love to watch new parents get to know their baby and learn what baby needs by listening to baby’s cues. When working with Parents with children already I enjoy helping them figure out a routine that fit’s the whole family. Not sure if this quite answers the question but I feel it is a good representative of myself.

What is the greatest compliment you’ve ever received from a client?
There is no way I can just pick one compliment that I have received. Listed below are 3 of my favorites that let me know I have done my job well:
“It is extremely difficult to write in words what Carol has meant to our family.”

“Thank you for helping create memories!”

 “Carol provided excellent advice and tips that we immediately put to use…We found her to be a invaluable resource and were so pleased to work with her.”

What do you enjoy about working with new families?
Watching families become more confident in the care of their new babies. How they go from not knowing much about babies to knowing what baby cues are and are completely conformable taking care of their child(ren)

Let’s talk newborns: what is your favorite part about caring for newborns?
I love the snuggle time at the first 2 weeks! LOL Watching them go from a newborn to a baby who is developing a personality.

What is next for you? Are you preparing for a new certification or training event?
I just finished getting my Certificate for Infant Massage Educator and Another NCS class. Maybe taking the NCSA test? Maybe looking into more sleep issues babies have?

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I read too much.
