One of the sweetest compliments I have received was from an overworked Mother with
a 4 month old. With happy tears in her eyes, she said "I feel like I have Mary Poppins."
While I don't feel like I am as magical as Mary Poppins, but I do enjoy helping and try my
best, to help Families with their new babies and ease the transition to welcoming their
baby into their life.
Being an NCS Nanny and Postpartum Doula is the most rewarding thing I have been able to do.
I love to come in and help families with their little-loves and not-so-little-loves.
So if you are looking for someone with creative energy, great experience and a nurturing heart,
I would love to talk with you! I look forward to hearing more about your family.
Thank you for considering me,
Newborn Care Specialist & Credentialed Nanny
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT ME
Dana Dawes comes highly recommended by myself and my husband. Actually, I cannot recommend her highly enough! Dana has been caring for our daughter, since she was 2 months old. (She is 7 months old now). She has been integral in her development thus far. Specifically, she assisted with planning and implementing a successful sleep training regimen for her early on...
...Dana is one of the most caring, kind, and generous individuals I have ever met. Her generosity extends not only just to time and effort but also to her care and love of our daughter. She has become a highly-valued member of our household and we appreciate her sweet spirit in our lives. Not to mention, she lights up when Dana walks in the room. She loves her Nanny Dana for sure!
