Being a new mom is “supposed” to be the happiest time of your life — or so everyone says.

For some moms, it isn’t. At all. You aren’t alone — 80% of moms have felt the way you do. You see your friends posting all their positive moments on social media, but it’s likely that they are also hiding some negative and inadequate feelings. You aren’t a “bad mom” if you have some ambivalent thoughts about your new life. It’s okay if right now you don’t love (or even like) being a mom.

It’s OK if you aren’t perfect

By the time you've found me, you've probably spent countless sleepless nights googling “how to be a good mom” and “how to connect with my baby who cries all the time”. Most moms find that this transition isn’t as easy as all of the other changes you’ve had in your life. Your family may not know how best to support you right now.

Whether your feeling “baby blues” or worried about postpartum depression, I’m Katy, and I’m here to help. I want you to feel connected to your baby and be able to smile when you hold them. I can help you work towards figuring out who you are now that you have someone who needs you.

Why in-home?

I know how difficult it can be to plan your life as a new mom! I come to your home, where you and your baby are most comfortable. It’s not only easier, but we’ll get to know each other faster, so that you can get the help you are seeking. Don’t be worried about cleaning up for me, I’ve seen it all. Want me to take my shoes off? Great, I’ll bring socks! Wash my hands? Absolutely - I don’t mess around with germs either.
