Hello! My name is Lays Ferreira. I am a wife, sister, and mother of three. I was born in Brazil and migrated to the U.S when I was still a teenager. Due to my love for kids, I started my journey as a young professional as a nanny. I believe that children bring joy to every family and I love to be surrounded by them.
For my first child, I didn't have much help and for my second I had a Birth and Postpartum Doula. They completely changed my whole perspective when it comes to childbirth. Having the support of a doula before, during, and after, inspired me to do more for myself and to apply these techniques in my own community.
I'm certified and trained both as a Birth and Postpartum Doula, Lactation consultant educator, and am currently studying to be IBCLC. I also am a Child Educator and I offer sleep training support. While at college, I took infant and child development classes and received my Medical Assistant certification.
My goal is to assist women and families in any way possible during this special time. I am here to support, educate, and encourage. Being a mother and doula made me realize how important it is to provide emotional support and the best care in the first challenging weeks after baby is born.
