Creator and Baby Whisperer at OmBaby
I began my journey with childcare over 15 years ago as a temporary nanny, working with children from birth to school age.
In 2008 I became a certified Birth Doula, attending over 15 births and a practicing Postpartum Doula. During that time I had the pleasure of working for Open Arms Perinatal Services in Seattle, the first government funded Doula program in the US, where I specialized in teen and Spanish speaking births.
I am a trained Newborn Care Specialist by Newborn Care Solutions. As well as a certified Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga instructor with nearly 20 year’s experience.
I am CPR certified and travel/passport ready with experience traveling with newborns. I have worked with varying parenting styles and philosophies; single parents, surrogates, awake care, donors, high- profile families, multiple births, preemies, postpartum depression, as well as the traditional family. I feel I am a great asset to any family environment as I am calm, nurturing, nonjudgmental, and compassionate. I have a unique and developed intuition blended with a traditional skill-set for a holistic approach.
I feel blessed in weaving together the different aspects of my experience to support and nurture families.
I enjoy travel, so I can be found working in cities on the West Coast and in the Southwest. In my free time I love yoga, hiking, camping, dancing, and the open road.

What Clients Say about OmBaby
I have learned so much from her natural talent and nurturing disposition, To watch Noel with the twins is to assume they are her own children. Her awareness of their needs and the comforting demeanor she possesses is truly a thing to see. I have especially enjoyed her tips on sleep training, and her overall loving spirit.
Noel’s calm nature when engaging with both us and our child belies her deep experience with newborns and infants. Noel was unwavering in her compassionate support for our family. She always respected our decisions as parents, and was also happy to provide suggestions if we wanted her perspective. As our daughter went through sleep transitions, Noel helped us navigate those, providing patient education and problem-solving with us. Noel helped us create a path forward for sleep conditioning that was aligned with our childrearing values.
Noel is an experienced, seriously capable newborn care specialist. She works extremely hard and takes her job very seriously and professionally. Our baby is now 5 months old, and is very well adjusted, happy and social thanks to Noel’s attention and hard work.
