Wendy Lacrouts

Postpartum Doula and Newborn care Specialist

Wendy's love of babies, experience as a nanny, desire to learn everything baby, and her own postpartum experience led her to pursue certification as a postpartum doula. She has always had a fascination with all things baby and pregnancy. She has over a decade of experience as a nanny and through this work realized her particular passion for working with infants. This led to becoming a certified Newborn Care Specialist and now she has over five years of experience with tiny babies. Wendy has worked with four sets of newborn twins and four sets of newborn triplets and would say she specializes in multiples. She also has experience with preemies and special needs.

She has worked with all styles of parenting and people. She had the chance to be an au pair in Austria and to travel Europe. This amazing experience allowed her to to learn about babies, children and parenting in another culture.

She wants to support mothers during the postpartum period and help care for their babies. The best gift you can give a mother during the fourth trimester (the first three months of baby’s life) is support, encouragement, confidence, rest, a listening ear and help around the house.  Wendy provides postpartum doula services to both the greater New Orleans area and the North Shore area.
