HYGGE MATERNITY CARE: THE SCANDINAVIAN WAY
Our founder truly embraces her Scandinavian heritage, and believes that every baby should be snuggled and cozy when they arrive home.
Scandinavians live for that special feeling of cozy or "hygge" in the home. This means having comfortable, confident and relaxed parents and surroundings when your baby arrives. We have baby nurses who can teach families how to wrap the perfect swaddle for maximum snuggle or "hygge" and help design your nursery and environment to be comfortable for everyone.
We believe that raising happy, healthy babies and children requires just the right amount of feeding, sleeping and playing "lagom" or contentment. We also believe that creating as natural a nursery environment as possible, creates a healthier environment for babies to grow and thrive, and we are happy to assist families in selecting organic and natural toys and baby products for their little ones.
Kathryn “Kate” Leaf Wallace, LPN
I’m a Boston nurse with over twenty years of infant and childcare experience. I love incorporating my Scandinavian heritage into this “hygge baby” model of care for mammas, pappas and their babes. I believe that every mamma and pappa deserves the support of experts in the coziness of their own home over a cup of delicious coffee to help them easily and comfortably transition into new parenthood.
I hold a masters degree in healthcare leadership from Brown University, and certificates in breastfeeding counseling, childbirth education and birth doula. I have been sleep training singletons and multiples since nursing school, and I love watching well rested, happy babies grow and thrive.
Our daughter is a year old, and she's been sleep trained since two months old to sleep through the night. She's my personal proof, that sleep training does work and does create happy babies. I live with my husband and daughter Karoline Astrid outside of Boston.
