I've been working as a professional nanny, house manager and most recently a night time doula in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. I have experience with kids of all ages from newborns, infants, toddlers to teenagers and more. I consider myself to be a dedicated and responsible nanny/doula who enjoys working with kids by creating a safe, healthy and loving environment where the kids can flourish happily. I am punctual with excellent time management and organization skills. I am pet friendly and comfortable in homes with one.
Zenaida is absolutely the best. She is kind, thoughtful and wonderful with babies. She took incredible care of our son for a couple of months, my only regret is that I didn't hire her for a longer period of time. She has been incredibly helpful and was very affectionate with our son. I never worried when he was in her care. I was also delighted that she was able to speak to our baby in Spanish, as Spanish is my first language.
Zenaida provided nighttime doula services for our son, Alex, starting when he was two weeks old. She's been absolutely wonderful and it feels like she's an extended part of our family. Our nights have been quiet and peaceful, and Zenaida has given us so much good advice that's also helped us during the days. We highly recommend Zenaida for her professionalism, expertise, hygienic practices and compassion!
Very trustworthy and reliable. Had great tips on sleep, breastfeeding, and general newborn care. We got a great night of sleep thanks to her!

As a nanny/doula I consider myself to be an extension of the parents by providing the same type of care, structure, love and responsibility as a parent would. I believe that it's my job to encourage, protect and care for each child while maintaining an open line of strong communication with the parents pertaining to their child's individual needs.
