About me

Hi, I’m Jaynie! I am a CACHE-Certified Newborn Care Specialist, Postpartum Doula, and New Parent Educator who has a passion for supporting newborns and their families for the first 12-16 weeks of life. I offer the families I work with unique expertise in newborn care, emotional and physical birth parent support, and parental education and family support. My job is to nurture and care for the newborn, the birth parent, and the entire family. As your Newborn Care Specialist, I’ll establish safe and comforting sleep practices, help you develop an easy-to-maintain daily and nightly schedule and routine, and create a system to track feedings, diaper changes, and sleep. I’ll also educate you on any aspects of newborn care you don’t feel confident in, especially for preemies, multiples, and/or medically fragile newborns. Most importantly, I will be there for overnights, responding to your baby’s needs while you get a full night of SLEEP!

Service introduction

As a Newborn Care Specialist, I establish an easy-to-maintain daily and nightly routine, get baby set up on a pediatrician-approved schedule for eating and sleeping, set up a stimulating environment for baby’s awake times and nurturing environment for sleep times, and begin sleep-conditioning baby immediately so the newborn(s) are sleeping through the night as soon as possible. I work along-side parents to care for the newborn, offer support with bathing, breast-or-bottle-feeding, diapering, and sleep, and I sleep in or near the nursery for overnight wake-ups and feedings. I will also help with newborn laundry, bottle and pump accessory washing, breast milk storage and preparation, formula preparation, and other newborn-related tasks around the home that will increase the amount of quality time you get to spend bonding with their newborn!

Jaynie is skilled newborn provider who provides just as much love and support for new parents as she does for newborns! Having her support overnight is a game changer--everyone sleeps better and we never have to worry that our newborn is getting every single need met (and plenty of snuggles!) while she's here. Her ongoing education about caring for our newborn also makes us feel empowered to be the best parents possible. She truly is a life-saver!
