In the middle of this process looking for a doula, thank God we found Lina, who with her professionalism, disposition and patience guided us from scratch to enter this wonderful world of parenthood, what to buy, how to prepare for childbirth, breastfeeding, newborn care and everything necessary for this new task of parenting. Thank you Lina for making life easier for us, for letting us see everything easier and for helping us organize a new life in a practical and appropriate way for us and our baby. ~ Fabian, Andrea and Simón!

Testimonial
We are desperate FT working professionals parents during pandemic with no help with a 5 mos baby.. so imagine how struggling our situation is. We had to have a solid base for our baby to sleep during the night and day time. Sarah was able to lead us through, give us encouragement and reassure of the safety of sleep training. There is a lot of Mom shaming there for sleep training, and getting extra support and guidance for us during these challenging times, was very important.

Testimonial
Sarina connected with our son, Zopher, on a level that no other therapist or medical provider was able to. She was amazingly patient and kind while guiding us through this new normal we were completely naive to. Our son had a genetic disorder that made swallowing and speaking a challenge as well as making him very prone to food aversions. With the help of Sarina, Zopher began to enjoy flavors and textures and his communication skills improved beyond anything we had dared hope for. My husband and I highly recommend Sarina and any program she has developed or endorsed. - Bonny W. (Mom of Zopher)

We are desperate FT working professionals parents during pandemic with no help with a 5 mos baby.. so imagine how struggling our situation is. We had to have a solid base for our baby to sleep during the night and day time. Sarah was able to lead us through, give us encouragement and reassure of the safety of sleep training. There is a lot of Mom shaming there for sleep training, and getting extra support and guidance for us during these challenging times, was very important.

Testimonial
Sarina connected with our son, Zopher, on a level that no other therapist or medical provider was able to. She was amazingly patient and kind while guiding us through this new normal we were completely naive to. Our son had a genetic disorder that made swallowing and speaking a challenge as well as making him very prone to food aversions. With the help of Sarina, Zopher began to enjoy flavors and textures and his communication skills improved beyond anything we had dared hope for. My husband and I highly recommend Sarina and any program she has developed or endorsed. - Bonny W. (Mom of Zopher)

Testimonial
We are desperate FT working professionals parents during pandemic with no help with a 5 mos baby.. so imagine how struggling our situation is. We had to have a solid base for our baby to sleep during the night and day time. Sarah was able to lead us through, give us encouragement and reassure of the safety of sleep training. There is a lot of Mom shaming there for sleep training, and getting extra support and guidance for us during these challenging times, was very important.

Testimonial
Sarina connected with our son, Zopher, on a level that no other therapist or medical provider was able to. She was amazingly patient and kind while guiding us through this new normal we were completely naive to. Our son had a genetic disorder that made swallowing and speaking a challenge as well as making him very prone to food aversions. With the help of Sarina, Zopher began to enjoy flavors and textures and his communication skills improved beyond anything we had dared hope for. My husband and I highly recommend Sarina and any program she has developed or endorsed. - Bonny W. (Mom of Zopher)
