Hello! My name is Jaymina. I live in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin with my husband and our three girls ages 7, 2 and 5 months. Since I was a young girl I’ve had the passion to work with babies and their caretakers. I’ve always found comfort in being a helping hand while nurturing and uplifting along the way.
Since 2020, I have been working as a birth and postpartum doula in the Milwaukee area. I saw the need for support, education and advocates in the birthing world during the pandemic. So I decided to get certificated as a doula and lactation educator to help provide services for families in my community.
It has been an honor and truly amazing to be a part of new lives entering the world and helping families with their transition. I am eager, outgoing, understanding, patient and caring. My goal is to be a sense of relief and shoulder to lean on during these challenging times. I look forward to working with you and family.
I live in Hartland with my two girls, Olivia, in high school and Gabrielle, in elementary school. We love camping, crafting, taking trips up north and vacationing to Florida with our family. The Lake Country area is so beautiful and we are truly happy to be a part of this community. Olivia is active in several clubs at Arrowhead and Gabrielle is very interested in the arts. The girls have
an age gap, which worked out for our family. I’m excited to get back to supporting babies.
I grew up around a huge family. I am the oldest cousin of almost 20, so I’ve always been around younger children. I can remember babysitting and caring for cousins and other children as a young girl. I always thought I would have at least 10 children and become a teacher. It’s always been natural for me to have family around and take care of others.
I’ve worked with families at the Milwaukee Art Museum for years as an Art Teacher in a studio setting for special events and Family Sundays on-site. I’ve also worked as an off-site studio teacher for the MAM at Summerfest, Milwaukee Public Libraries, Lakefront Festival of Arts and State Fair. We set up creative, hands-on art activities for families to come together and create art in the community.
As a Newborn Care Specialist, I’m looking forward to this rewarding position addressing the needs of a newborn and helping to educate parents on the basics of newborn care during this life changing time. I am excited to build a trusted relationship with parents while caring and soothing their newborns.
My name is Melissa. My hubby and I have been married 19 years and we have 4 energetic, busy boys, ages 13, 11, 11 (twins!), and 6. I grew up with all girls, 3 sisters, so having all boys has thrown me for a few loops!
I have always wanted to be a mom, a nurse and/or a teacher. Now I wear all 3 hats plus many more! My love for kiddos and babies came early on as I began babysitting, around 11 years old, and nannying for families throughout high school and college. I also worked for daycare centers and an in home daycare while at college. After graduating nursing school, I started in my dream job, in Labor & Delivery at one of the largest baby hospitals in Wisconsin. I continued to help mamas bring their baby/babies into this world while starting my own family.
Through my own pregnancies and birth experiences I have dealt with high risk, cesarean sections, NICU time, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, jaundice, sleep training and caring for multiples. Starting your family or adding on to it is a very exciting time and can also have its challenges. I love meeting mamas where they’re at and helping make things a smooth transition from discharge through the first handful of months with their precious little one. Everyone needs a helping hand at some time or another. I’m here to lend a helping hand in whatever way is needed!
Hi, I'm Aelisha! I am a mommy to two babies - with a daughter who is 12 and a son who is 7! They are very involved and keep us very busy with sports and activities. We moved to Wisconsin from Iowa in 2020 and we have completely fallen in love with the area. We love the summers here and spending time on the water is one of our favorite things to do!
I am the oldest on both sides of my family, so I grew up having littles around. I loved babysitting and started as soon as I was old enough.
I received my RN through Purdue University and found a job shortly after as a Postpartum/Women's Health nurse at a local hospital. This job allows me not only to care for infants but also care for new and experienced parents alike. Each postpartum experience is so different and it is so rewarding to be a part of teaching and educating parents on their new journey. Having a child is a significant change in one's life - I wanted to know that my efforts in the hospital really made a difference when the families went home. This is when I found Lake Country Newborns and I knew this is what I wanted to be a part of. Helping a family adjust to a new experience is so rewarding to me and I am so excited to be providing care for new families.
Hi, my name is Amber, and I’m a momma to two adventurous, nature loving kiddos enjoying every season Wisconsin has to offer. In our free time, you’ll find us soaking up the sun and enjoying the outdoors, camping, fishing and hiking, and any other pastime that will occupy our free time.
I began caring for patients as early as a teenager working as a CNA. I quickly knew caregiving was my calling. Building trusting relationships and providing compassionate care came naturally to me. I take pride in advocating for my clients and effortlessly bonding with patients. After four years of providing care as a CNA, I began working as a Licensed Practical Nurse. I have six years of various nursing positions’ experience. I’ve found that one-on-one care has been the most rewarding, and I feel my clients are drawn to my nurturing, genuine presence.
As a Newborn Care Specialist, Nurse, and Momma myself, I’m excited to be a helping hand with your family and navigating the newborn stage with you! Through the sleep deprived nights and EVERYTHING new with your little one, I assure you an ear to vent to, a shoulder to cry on and an abundance of patience to care for your new baby. A refreshed momma is a relaxed momma. I want my presence in your home to be a relief and to leave with you feeling refreshed mentally and physically.
Hi, my name is Becky. I live in Oconomowoc with my husband and two sons ages 14 and 12. I have always had the heart and passion to work with babies and children. Growing up my mom ran an in-home daycare and this gave me a great opportunity at a young age to explore my nurturing side. I always wanted to help.
I started babysitting at age 12 and in 2000, I moved to Ohio to be a live-in nanny. I worked for a family for five years until they moved out of state. They had three children, including one with Down Syndrome. After that I worked for a few families and their babies, until starting my own family in 2007. During this time, I earned a reputation as a baby whisperer!
I have lots of experience working both days and overnights. When my children started school, I took the opportunity to volunteer in their elementary school as much as I could. During this time I also helped my friend care for her mother with dementia. This all lead me to start subbing in the school district and then eventually becoming an employee, combining my love for children and my natural patience for those with special needs. I have been a special education paraprofessional for the past 5 years. This has been an amazing experience working with children who have Autism, Emotional or Behavioral Disorders, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder just to name a few.
I am very excited to be a part of Lake Country Newborns and share my knowledge, helping hands and baby whispering with you and your family.
My name is Angela. My husband and I live in Hartland, WI. We are the proud parents of three boys, ages 7, 12, and 14. My boys enjoy playing hockey, soccer, baseball, and my oldest son also has a strong foundation in music. My husband and I love being a part of their sports lives and the hockey season pretty much takes up most of our lives! We also have many pets, including THREE dogs and a cat. We enjoy being outdoors and love taking family trips.
I graduated from High School in 1997, and earned an Associates Degree in Art. Once I realized I wanted to continue my education and focus more on children, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree of Science at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, with a major in Child Psychology. I began my career working with children with special needs, specifically, as a therapist for children with Autism.
Once I became a mom, I chose to stay home full-time and raise my boys as well as care for other children in my home. I have been so blessed to be a stay-at-home with all three of my sons while also being able to provide in-home childcare. I have over twenty years of childcare experience with not only raising my own three babies, but with providing childcare to kids ranging in ages of infant to school age, and even a child in high school (with special needs). I have provided both part-time and full-time care, in addition to drop-in care and overnight hours.
I have always enjoyed being around children of all different ages, but my passion is working with new babies. I am highly motivated and look forward to sharing my education and knowledge of newborns in combination with my experiences of raising my own babies, with new moms that are seeking a gentle, caring, and loving helping hand.
Ever since I was a small child, I found myself drawn to the "helping" professions. Initially pursuing nursing in college, then changing my major to psychology, I knew that nurturing others for their best well-being was my intended path. When my first child was born nearly 23 years ago, I found myself amazed by the miraculous beauty of pregnancy, birth, and the needs of new mothers. This fueled a passion within me to become a doula, though it wasn't something I pursued until quite later.
As a strong empath, I have a natural bent to provide meaningful emotional support to my clients. My desire to encourage and empower mothers gives my clients a peaceful reassurance as they embark on the various stages of parenting. Clients can count on my attention to detail, compassion, and solid communication skills. Having a child brings significant life change, and my goal is to be a steadfast support in each growing family.
Married nearly 25 years, I'm a seasoned mama to five children and Grammy to two babies. There's nothing I enjoy more than equipping and supporting others, and I consider it an honor and a privilege each time I'm trusted into the lives of a new family.
I have always loved working with children. Growing up, I had a blended family with seven siblings, and I started babysitting when I was twelve years old. After high school, I was not sure what I wanted to do but knew I loved being around and caring for children. I started my professional career in daycare, as a teacher in rooms ranging from infants to school age children. I became a mother myself at 23 - to TWINS! I gained so much knowledge from my own experiences (preterm labor, vaginal delivery as well as an emergency cesarean, NICU stay, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, pumping, supplementing, and multiples of course!) and I decided to pursue a future in the medical field, focusing of course on children and infants.
I got my CNA and after working on a medical unit for experience, I took a risk and applied to be an Obstetrics Technician and I got it! I worked with laboring mothers, assisted in both vaginal deliveries and scrubbed surgeries, newborn care for both the nursery and NICU, as well as postpartum care for mothers and families. I did this all for five years.
After I had my son, who is now three (and has given me even more personal experience - gestational diabetes, full term delivery, TOLAC and successful VBAC, lip tie, frequent ear infections) and the stresses of the pandemic on the healthcare field, I knew it was time for a change. I am so excited to be working with Lake Country Newborns and be able to provide personalized care for families.
I am sure you have heard the phrase, “When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” I feel extremely fortunate that I found that “love” very early on. At the age of 6 my parents accepted their first foster baby into their home. After a number of years and 32 newborns later my life with littles had only truly just begun.
Growing up in a home surrounded by children (infants especially) created a lot of comfortability. It does sound cliche, but I knew I was meant to be a mother, but even beyond that I knew I wanted to follow in my mom’s footsteps and foster as well. Fast forward a few years (29 years ago) where I met my wonderful husband. Someone who very graciously agreed and supported my decision to open our doors for foster babies. Mind you this is after already having 6 biological children (his, mine, and ours) as we like to say! Dave and I welcomed our first foster child when our youngest was just 2 years old.
Now 23 years, and an amazing 65 newborns later we just retired fostering last summer. We decided that our 9 granddaughters and our energetic 8 year old whom we adopted 2 years ago would keep us busy enough. Not to mention all our fur babies over the years too. Yet I have found that my “baby fever,” just can’t seem to be cured. I am so excited to be given this opportunity to share my love and knowledge of newborns I have gained over the years. I look forward to meeting with your family and offering my support in any way I can.
