Sara venaglia

I began working with children at 12 years old as a babysitter, loving that I got to spend my time at the playground and making art projects. After college, I chose to adapt my love of working with children to specializing in infant care. As I learned the role of a postpartum doula, I developed a passion for seeing all members of the family thrive, not just the newborn. My desire to see parents feel confident, supported and enjoy their newborn rather than "surviving" their new baby led me to expand my training, incorporating birth education and pregnancy support with deeper study in breastfeeding and infant sleep. My own journey with energy work drew me to becoming a practitioner, incorporating reiki and guided meditation into my work with clients at any point on their parenthood path.
A Virginia native, I have been a Southern California resident for 4 years. I love to travel, learning something new from each place I have the opportunity to visit. I am an animal lover, something many of my client's pets appreciate when I come to your home! I love to cook, practice yoga and find new walking trails around my home to explore.
