Hola! My name is Ingrid! I'm a friendly and enthusiastic child care professional and mother with 11 years of experience working with babies and children of diverse backgrounds. My past experience as a nanny and babysitter influenced me to pursue my current career as a postpartum night doula. I still stay in touch with many of the families I have worked with in the past and I am proud to be able to provide you with excellent client references. I absolutely love babies and children and am delighted that I get to spend my days with them. I also have experience working with twins, multiple babies, and sibling doula services.
You can rest assure that I will maintain a vigorous and safe environment for your baby/babies. I can't wait to meet you and be part of your postpartum journey with your new and growing family!
"Ingrid worked with us and our son Torin from the time he was 5 months old to the time he was just over a year. I can't recommend Ingrid highly enough. She is absolutely wonderful with babies and my son adores her. She got him on a sleeping and eating schedule within 2 weeks at the age of 5 months. After just a day or two, I trusted her100%, which made going back to work so much easier. She interacted well with the babies. They would sing, talk and read books together all of the time. She provided us with much needed guidance and was always on time. As a professional, she knows her stuff and always put the babies needs first."
"We feel very lucky to have had such a wonderful person in our daughters' lives over the past year. Ingrid was nurturing, sweet, and playful with our girls. Our girls in turn, adored Ingrid, and would light up when she came over. Ingrid is dedicated and hardworking. She always treated our children as though they were her own. I have complete trust in Ingrid. She is honest and reliable and is more than capable of juggling both children and their different needs/schedules at the same time. Knowing that my daughters were in such good hands, and were happy when Ingrid arrived, made it much easier for me to hand them over with piece of mind."
"Ingrid did more than just watch our son - she took care of him and loved him as if he were her own child. She was our partner in teaching our son everything from how to eat with utensils to how to treat others with kindness (not to mention potty training!). We wanted our son to be exposed to Spanish at an early age, which Ingrid was so helpful in doing. There really are no words to describe how amazing and wonderful Ingrid is as a caregiver, but she is most definitely an even better person. Her smile, energy and genuine love for her kids can not be understated. We were so lucky to have her in our lives and I hope you will quickly feel the same way."
"Ingrid was a delightful and kind presence from the moment she entered our house each night. Our twin daughters were comforted by her immediately, and she was instinctively soothing to our curious toddler who also popped out a few times while she was caring for us. She was also professional and knowledgeable about overseeing twins, and accommodating of our particular parenting style. Her service to our household was so valuable during the trying first few weeks as a family of five, and I slept easier knowing she was there. Though this is a second birth for me, I wish I’d thought to get this level of support for my first birth. Thank you, Ingrid!"
I highly recommend Ingrid as a night doula for your newborn needs. She performed night care for our newborn daughter from September-December 2022. Ingrid is an incredibly patient individual who takes the time to meet both the newborns and parents needs. She always arrived early or on time, giving me peace of mind that our daughter was in good hands as we got some rest. Her positive attitude and knowledge background regarding child development and routines was admirable. She really helped us get on a schedule and work towards getting our daughter to sleep through the night. She would prepare bottles for future feeding sessions, freeze milk as requested, clean baby bottles and pump attachments, fold and clean baby laundry, and provide valuable insights and knowledge regarding feeding and sleep training. Ingrid has all the qualities of a reliable, trustworthy and successful night doula. As we transition into our normal routines, we are no longer in need of her services but she was such a crucial part of our family as we started our new journey as parents. I can't say enough great things about Ingrid and, again, highly recommend her as a night doula.
