Meet Amanda Chamberlain
I have always loved babies. Even from a young age, I loved helping my Mother with my baby brother. Ever since my first “babysitting” experience at age 10, I was hooked! Throughout my teens I enjoyed babysitting neighborhood children and began developing my childcare skills. Many clients have often told me that I am a “baby whisperer,” and while I appreciate the kind observation, I can honestly say that I attribute this to the fact that I received such an early start and wonderful foundation in childcare. After working for so long with small children and babies, understanding them and relating to them seems almost second nature to me.
After graduating from high-school and completing an A.S. degree in Nutrition, I started working as a nanny in
Northeast Washington State. For several years I enjoyed not only taking care of babies, but also helping to tutor early elementary children. In 2006, I decided to pursue training in massage therapy
and attended a six month program in California. After graduating and passing the NCTMB (the National
Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork), I returned to Tennessee and began working as a nanny in the fall of 2007. I was fortunate enough to work with a wonderful family in Nashville for several years, and during this time, I also began working as a baby nurse on the side. As much as I enjoyed my nannying position, I knew that my first love was working with small babies and I decided to focus my energies on being a full-time baby nurse.
Since that time, with the exception of four incredible months that I spent volunteering and sight seeing in Africa, I have dedicated my time to working as a baby nurse.
While I initially began working as a night nurse for various families, in 2010, I decided to focus on helping
families on a 24-hour-a-day basis during their first weeks with a new baby. I have found these intensive, multi-week stays to be the most rewarding. I quickly realized how challenging the first
several weeks at home can be as the new mother recuperates from the delivery and baby adjusts to life outside the womb.
My goal as a baby nurse is to help ease the adjustment that families experience with the addition of an new little member to the family, and I have dedicated myself full-time to working around the unique needs of each family that I work with.
