Heather, owner of Sweet Sleep Newborn Care, is an experienced, NCSA Certified  Newborn Care Specialist (CNCS, NCS), (which is similar to a Postpartum Doula) a member of the San Diego Birth Network and the International Nanny Association.  She combines 8 ½  years as a CNCS, a Bachelor’sdegree in Family Science and Human Development with 25 total years of private in-home childcare experience. Her experience includes twins, triplets, preemies, EOE, gastrointestinal disorders, protein allergies and intolerances, reflux, Apnea monitors, adoption, sibling adjustment, and high profile families, contributing to an ever growing list of resources for client families. 

Throughout the years Heather has pursued education in Newborn Care and Development, Social, Child, and Abnormal Psychology,  Family Theory, Child, Adolescent and Human Development.  Because each family is unique, she has enjoyed working with a range of child rearing philosophies, leading to a continually adjusting balanced approach.  

When Considering Heather or her NCS and Doula colleagues to guide you and watch over your precious little ones at this very special time in your life, review the candidate’s experience and credentials, but make your decision based on heart!  The feelings of comfort and connection are most important in intimate, sensitive times like these.  

 “I see life as a learning experience and I learn and improve myself with each family I have the blessing of working with.  I am grateful to the many families who have become a wonderful part of my life and contributed to who I am today!”
