"The Baby Mavens were true life savers! As a first time mom suffering with postpartum anxiety, I really struggled with feeling like I was doing everything wrong, and second guessing every decision I was making. From her very visit, Laurie provided the reassurance and encouragement that I needed to feel good about my new role as a mom. Laurie is so kind, knowledgable, and supportive. My son and I both felt immediately comfortable with her and all of her tips and tricks on everything from feeding to sleeping to baby products were so helpful. I think the most valuable thing that Laurie gave me was a feeling of confidence that I was doing a great job as a mom. That really allowed me to really enjoy my newborn son, which is priceless. I would highly recommend The Baby Mavens to anyone who needs some extra support as a mom!" -Meredith C.
"As a first time mom I was extremely nervous and overwhelmed with just about everything when my daughter came home. It was equally important for me to find someone who would not only take great care of my daughter but would teach me and help me gain confidence as a mother. Lauren encompasses just that; she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience that is invaluable for any new parent and offers expertise and wisdom far beyond her 20 plus years of experience as a nanny. I found being a new mom it was essential to have someone who was well versed with not only newborns and children but also post-partum health and wellness of the mother. Lauren has been a huge blessing for my family and really helped me grow as a mother." -Michele G.
"The best part about our first experience with Lauren was that on that night, our 6 week old baby boy slept through the entire night for the first time! This was just the beginning of Lauren serving as a mentor for me as a new mother. She gave me the reassurance and guidance that I truly needed." -Julie M.
"As a new mom, it's hard to know if you are doing the right things for your baby and you don't want to bug anyone with every little question you have. When my baby girl was born, she brought us more joy than we could ever imagine, along with a TON of situations that we had never encountered before. How much sleep should she be getting? How much should she be eating? Why does she cry so often? So many things that before I had her I thought I would have had under control. In my experience as a new mother, I feel so fortunate to have Laurie any day and any time, just a phone call away. Laurie was always there to answer any questions I had, or even there to just let me bounce something off of her to make sure I was doing the right thing. Not only did she provide invaluable information and tips that I will always remember, she provided me with reassurance that I was on the right track and being a good mother. I guess you could say that she not only helped shape my newborn but also helped shape me as a new mommy! That alone is priceless. Even to this day, my husband and I still take advantage of Laurie's expertise regarding car seats, feeding schedules, , and anything else that comes up! And I never feel like I'm bothering her genuinely loved to help and share her knowledge. I would highly recommend Laurie and her wisdom of babies/children to any new (or returning!) parent, grandparent, or other family member. Parenting is tough and she has the perfect balance of of confidence and compassion to help you get through the tough times!" -Alexis R.
"Even though I live halfway across the country, I take comfort in knowing Lauren is no more than a phone call away. She is the first person I call when I have any issues with my three daughters. Her calm no-nonsense advice on everything from car seats to feeding issues to potty training is always welcome and so very appreciated." -Stephanie T.
"Before my son was even born I was asking Laurie for so much advice on all of the best, and the safest items for my baby. He is now almost three and a half, and I am still asking for advice. She is so knowledgable on all things baby, from seats to feeding, to caring for sick babies. I trust her with my son's life, he loves her so much. She is such a loving, caring person who always puts you and your babies best interests first!" -Kelly D.
