Kathleen Sullivan, C.P.D. | Newborn Care Specialist | Los Angeles, CA


with over

As our society has evolved, the extended family that traditionally helped care for babies is not as available as it once was. That does not mean that it is not needed. In my role as a certified postpartum doula and newborn care specialist (formerly known as “baby nurse”), I take pride in offering non-judgmental emotional and practical support for new parents. I have had the joy of helping families welcome their newborns for over 16 years.

My extensive knowledge of newborn infant care will aid the overwhelming transition into parenthood. I make myself available to my clients around the clock so they do not have to turn to Google for answers. Assuming the role of parent is like nothing else and I am here to guide you through the process. I serve the Los Angeles and Orange County areas in person and am available worldwide via phone and Skype.

I love my job and cherish each infant I work with. My clients become my friends, which is the best testimonial I could ask for.
