In December I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl after experiencing a very difficult pregnancy. I suffered from a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. In other words I experienced extreme morning sickness for the entire 9 months. It was so bad that I ended up cracking my ribs because I was vomiting non-stop. I share this with you because I was unable to physically prepare for the arrival of my first and only child. So while most new mothers spend the months leading up to the birth of their child educating themselves i.e. taking classes on how to care for an infant or reading the What to Expect When Expecting books, I had my head buried in the toilet bowl. As my due date fast approached, I soon realized I was not prepared to care for an infant. In fact, my experience with newborns up until now was very limited. I had maybe changed 2 diapers in my life.
Enter Veronica. Veronica was referred to me by my sister who used her services 4 years ago after the birth of her daughter. To date, Veronica has been working WITH us since the beginning of December. I say "with us " and not "for us" because she has become a part of our family. To say she loves what she does is an understatement. She is extremely passionate about her job as an infant educator. My husband and I have learned so much from Veronica. Not only is our baby consistently sleeping through the night (yep, that happened within a month and half - over nine hours at a time!!), she has also taught us tricks to soothe her when she becomes fussy. Veronica taught me how to properly bathe and diaper my baby. She has educated me on everything from the best baby products to buy, to how to use them. Her patience is limitless, and I never feel judged or uncomfortable about asking questions. I feel completely free to disagree with her, though I rarely do. Her methods are clearly resulting in an amazingly happy and pain free first few months. When I hear my girlfriends complain about the lack of sleep, or their frustrations with feeding or sleep training, I nod sympathetically, but the truth is that I'm smiling on the inside. The proof is in the pudding!
Happy Mother!!!!Courie W.
