Tara Schields

Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist & Sleep Specialist

Meeting the Needs of New Parents with Support, Understanding and Education

As a trained Newborn Care Specialist, Postpartum Doula and Sleep Specialist with over 20 years of newborn care experience, I offer a unique expertise in both the postpartum period and the nurturing of newborns.

In addition to physically supporting parents and their newest addition, I weave education into the time we spend together because my goal is for parents to feel confident in their roles and empowered with knowledge by the end of my time with them.

I am constantly continuing my education in this field by taking new courses and workshops several times a year. I have taken foundational, advanced and elite newborn care training as well as postpartum doula training. I have 13 years of experience supporting breastfeeding mothers through complications such as mastitis, lip and tongue ties, poor latch, low and over supply, and helping moms who choose to exclusively pump.

As a professional and as a person, I am trustworthy, calm, down-to-earth, compassionate , knowledgeable, humble, organized, and reliable. Families feel at ease with me because I am a natural caregiver and teacher, supportive, nonjudgmental and attentive to the individual needs of each family. I constantly strive to maintain professional boundaries, including the respect of each family’s parenting styles and parental decisions.

I am available to help families with 24/7 care in addition to overnight care.

I am Trustline certified and have training in infant, child and adult CPR.
