A love for babies fueled Kimberly's 20+ year career serving families in the postpartum time frame. With a passion for nurturing new parents, she trains doulas and educators with CAPPA to support and educate for a strong beginning of bonding and connection. She loves teaching expectant families to have a smooth transition to new baby life through the Providence Healthcare System in Portland, OR. She began as a postpartum doula, then quickly added breastfeeding and new parent classes to help parents from the very beginning, and then became an IBCLC to meet their bigger challenges. She owns ABC Doula & Newborn Care in Portland, OR, is the mother of 2 grown kids, and resides in Phoenix near her parents. Like many other baby whisperers, Kimberly has honed skills for listening and responding to babies that parents can quickly learn to understand and interpret their tiny humans. When she sees parents struggling, and especially with the most fussy of babies, her heart hopes that all parents could be given the tools to compassionately support their little ones, and learn how to meet their needs, which creates more confidence in themselves in their new roles as well.

How much crying is too much crying? When parents reach out with questions about their babies crying, what parameters are available to help guide them to understand their infants? This session will aim to guide professionals who support the newborn family, including offering guidelines for number of hours that are considered normal, descriptions of high and low criers, timelines of expected crying, and solutions and alternatives when the typical approaches don’t seem to work. Utilizing the research on the Crying Curve--a pattern of crying beginning at about 42 weeks of gestation, peaking at 6-8 weeks of age, and sharply declining by 12-15 weeks--parents can navigate newborn life according to their gestational age. 15 different studies have concluded that this pattern is common across infants of all cultures, gestational ages (based on a 40-week gestation), and parenting styles—and the applications are many in the early parenting world. Help families learn to utilize this model to help assess their newborn. Multiple models of interpreting newborn crying from body language to sound and tone to help interpret newborn needs will be shared. Let’s move beyond reassuring parents that “colic” will end by 3 months and offer them solutions and alternatives.
