My name is JoAnna Becker and I have been working with children and their families for almost 30 years. I started as a Nanny and Household Manager and in 2016, I started Peace of Mind Newborn Care LLC, and transitioned to a career as an International Certified Newborn Care Specialist. Since then, I have added to the services I offer clients by becoming a Certified Lactation Counselor, Certified New Parent Educator, and a trained Labor Doula.
When I partner with a family for their postpartum period, I feel that my role is to support and to be an extension of the parents while being available for expert information, guidance on the many decisions parents need to make, and emotional support. Adding a new family member is one of the most important, happiest, and most stressful events in life, and I love being able to support families through their postpartum transition and help them find their new family dynamic.
I live in Northern Virginia with my husband of over 25 years, my amazing Mom, and our sweet Bengal kitty. I have one son who recently got married and lives out of state with his wife. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, painting, swimming, scuba diving, and traveling.
