Triangle Mothercare Night Nurse, Prenatal Technician and CNA. While welcoming a new baby into your life is amazing, it can also be exhausting! Your newborn will probably not sleep through the night for the first few weeks or months of their life. That is where Amie comes in!

Then Amie will soothe baby back to sleep and encourage healthy sleep habits appropriate for baby’s age. Getting good sleep (for mom) leads to a lower risk of postpartum depression and anxiety, better health, better breastmilk supply, more harmony with your family, being able to function better at work and overall enjoyment of parenthood. If you have other children, you will be more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to parent them in the morning, too!

Triangle Mothercare Night Nurse and Special Care Nursery Nurse (RN). Emily's favorite way to help parents, especially first time parents, is helping them feel comfortable holding their baby, feeding and burping their baby and changing diapers. She also strives towards making sure new parents understand safe sleep techniques. Sleep is one of the hardest things to get down, especially when bringing home a baby for the first time. Sometimes it can be a little terrifying to lay down and get sleep as new parents when you have a brand new baby at home, which leads to very little sleep. Emily can show new parents how to learn the cues (hunger, sleepy, awake) from baby in order to help them feel confident in how they are responding.
