We can't think of enough glowing things to say about Veronica and her team! They are prompt, thorough, delightfully friendly, well-informed, and highly instructive.
We met with Veronica at first, but she was a little out of our price range, so we went with one of her apprentices, Lidia. All I can say is that I honestly don't know how we would have gotten through the last three months without her -- I knew NOTHING about babies before having one of my own. And now, at 12 weeks, our daughter can sleep 11-12 hours solid at night, and my husband and I are pros at swaddling, feeding, bathing, naptime, etc.
We would highly recommend Veronica and Lidia to any new parents. Even my Mother-in-Law loved her -- and believe me, that is some HIGH PRAISE.
We hired Veronica Hinojosa-Stang as our Postpartum Doula and Travelling Baby Nurse and this letter is to show my appreciation for the help provided to my family during the birth of our son. I went from Washington Dc to Los Angeles to deliver my 3rd child .I conducted various interviews to find a Baby Nurse and knew that I would hire Veronica right after I met her. Veronica has decades of experience in the care of newborns and infants. She is professional, responsive and always eager to help.
With a new newborn, I had to travel back to Washington on a 6 hour flight. I decided to take Veronica with the family. Veronica took impeccable care of the baby at the airport during the entire check in/security (3 hours) and duration of the flight. The baby did not even cry once! and seemed very comfortable on her arm for almost 11 hours straight. It was amazing how Veronica handled the entire journey with a great sense of humor.
Veronica was extremely professional in the care of our baby since he was born. I really appreciated that Veronica takes her time feeding the baby and ensures that he is properly burped and stomach settled before putting him down (this can take up to 1.5 hours at a stretch every 3 hours or so!). I was also assisted by Veronica on the various ways to ensure that the baby latches on and given tremendous support on overall lactation issues. This was a difficult learning process and I could not have managed without Veronicas assistance.
Veronica always makes sure that the bottles are properly cleaned and with the free time available, also manages to do the babys laundry and even helps in the kitchen and gets the time to interact with my other 2 daughters ages 5 and 2.
As a Postpartum Doula, she did a great job looking for the well-being of the whole family as a unit. She was able to share some of her time with my other 2 kids and played, danced and read some books. My daughters learned a little bit of Spanish in her short visit with us which was amazing.
Veronica is highly energized, fits her schedule to accommodate the needs of the mother and loves working with infants. I highly recommend Veronica for newborn and infant care.
I contacted Veronica when my daughter was 6 weeks olds. She used to be rocked to sleep and it kept longer and longer to make her falls asleep. Veronica help me broke the bad habit and introduce the new method of helping her to fall asleep. She spent 10 days with us and our daughter got a lot better. She can sleep for about 5-6 hours and woke up only one or two at night to be fed. I highly recommend Veronica for sleep training your baby.
Veronica helped us so much. Before she arrived, our baby hardly slept at all. Veronica quickly got her on a good sleep schedule, sleeping 3- 4 hours at a stretch!
She clearly cared for and was very affectionate with our daughter. She went above and beyond and was always available for extra hours if needed. She brought us a cake and flowers for my husbands graduation, and helped get our baby dressed for pictures.
Veronica was hard working and made our life with baby so much easier at night that we were able to enjoy our daughter instead of being constantly exhausted.
Thank you Veronica! and I will give your name to anyone in need of GREAT CARE
I called Veronica the day I came back home after c-section. I was in so much pain with my swollen feet I was not able to get up from the bed. I was in tears when I called her because I had no help at home. Veronica was so kind and nice, she came right away. Her massage made me able to walk within 4 days. She also taught me how to bath the baby, swaddle the baby, and techniques to calm down the baby. She is also a great cook. She is very professional, kind hearted, and caring. The value of Veronica's time and teaching was invaluable to us. I can't say enough good things about her. Veronica is very kind and caring and wonderful with the babies in her care.
She even went on coloring my hair because I was unable to get out my apartment. She is a great person, like a mother.
I wish you all the best!
