There is no Greater Joy or Privilege than Being a Grandparent

Parents and grandparents undoubtedly value the importance of building strong relationships within the family, and welcoming a new baby is a perfect opportunity for this. Our program recognizes this need and goes beyond simply equipping grandparents with the updated knowledge and skills for newborn care and safety. We understand that involving grandparents in the caregiving process creates an environment where meaningful connections and stronger relationships can flourish.

Through our specialized training program, grandparents gain a deeper understanding of the latest techniques and expert insights, allowing them to contribute to the care of their grandchild actively and support the new parents as needed.

By contributing to the newborn’s care, parents and grandparents can bond over shared experiences, exchange wisdom, and create lasting memories together. The joy of watching a grandparent lovingly cradle their grandchild and the heartfelt conversations had while soothing a crying baby all contribute to the relationships and a sense of unity within the family.

JOIN US! Our program provides the foundation for excellent care for the newborn and creates an environment where parents and grandparents can grow closer and appreciate each other’s contributions. Together, navigating the joys and challenges of parenthood, knowing that the support, knowledge, and love of each other will be there.

A pediatric and home health nurse whose clients often refer to as the “baby whisperer”. She’s passionate about making life easier for new parents and grandparents and impacts their journeys through her vast knowledge and empathetic approach. When she’s not snuggling all the babes and sharing her expertise in grandparent class, she can be found exploring playgrounds, hiking, and trying new restaurants with her husband and two sweet daughters. 

Meet Maureen –

A postpartum doula, and built-in support system. She’s the invaluable presence that helps new parents adjust to their brand-new world. Her calmness, innate feelings and attention to detail are realized in the home and classroom. When she’s not supporting families and training new grandparents, she’ll be trying different adventures around the city and traveling to new places with her wonderful three kiddos and husband.

Meet Ashley –

The lactation consultant who’s bringing “boob talk” to the baby boomers. When she’s not busy refreshing grandparents on the art of feeding babies, you can find her working as a speech therapist and chasing after her three kids and loving husband.
