In our ancestral history, new parents weren’t left to fend for themselves in flats and condominiums. They raised their children embedded in a community, and benefited from communal wisdom. A baby nurse knows that it takes a village to raise a child, and I always try to involve siblings and extended family in the process of loving new babies. Over the years, I’ve cared for the babies of pediatricians and business people, tech professionals and more. My style isn’t to judge, but to accept and support, unconditionally. Isn’t that love?
