STORK READY PARTNERS
Baby O and I
Hi! I’m Jensine Casey, sleep consultant, lover of all things beach related, and mom to two handsome boys and a baby girl! I work with families of children 4 and under who are exhausted and struggling with getting their little ones to sleep for naps or at night. Through sleep consulting, your entire family's life will change. Not to sound dramatic but it’s true. But with so many methods of child rearing and sleep training it is difficult to know what works best for your particular family.
Becoming a sleep consultant became a dream and passion of mine after working with one myself to get my older son sleeping as I saw how life changing it was to sleep through the night and have daily naps I could rely on. I’m devoted to working with families around the world to get their lives back, just as I got mine back! Every day I work with families just like yours to provide a program and support through getting their child to be an amazing sleeper. I am proof that the support works and is trans-formative.
Safe sleep and sweet dreams!
Jessie realized that her passion and skills intersected fluidly and in 2019 she officially left her preschool career to become a labor and postpartum doula and has been loving this work ever since. Jessie works with the fundamental belief that when given unbiased, evidence-based support, love, compassion and appropriate education, expectant parents and their families will have more meaningful and positive birth and postpartum experiences.
When Jessie is not talking about birth and babies, she is spending time in nature with her bloodhound or spending time with her family and friends. Jessie is an animal lover, has over 75 houseplants and is always up for a weekend camping trip, if she’s not on call that is.
Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
Certified Postpartum Doula
Sarah is the mother of two wonderful girls and an enthusiastic lover-of-babies. As an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), she enthusiastically helps families reach their feeding goals: from breastfed to formula fed to somewhere in between. Her years of experience working with families as a postpartum doula guides her lactation support: she looks at the “whole picture” of the family and the baby. By referring to her extensive training on newborn sleep, infant development, and postpartum recovery, she helps families understand how these aspects are invariably intertwined with nursing and eating patterns.
The postpartum period is challenging but fleeting; she loves working with parents to make adjustments so that feeding is an enjoyable and cherished time. In Sarah’s free time she loves reading, knitting, hula hooping, and being outside with her family. Sarah lives in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

Certified Yoga Teacher (RYT-200)
ERN Doula & Perinatal Education
As a doula and perinatal educator, I am committed to helping new families find their true north on this life-changing journey. I strive to validate and fulfill a family’s birth preferences through evidence based education, access to quality perinatal care, and personal empowerment. I let my intuition, expansive knowledge, and instinct guide my hands-on teaching and doula support style to help create a nurturing environment that fosters confidence, self-advocacy, and love. My training as a dancer, actor, singer, and certified yoga teacher provides me with a deep understanding of the capabilities of the human body. I encourage all birthing persons to be active participants in their pregnancy and birth by being their cheerleader, as well as teaching them how to incorporate movement and Spinning Babies® into their daily prenatal and laboring routines. As a North Shore resident, I love supporting expecting families in my home community, and connecting them with the local resources they need to feel supported as their family transitions and grows.
When I am not helping families throughout the birth process, I enjoy acting, dancing, singing, teaching theater to students of all ages, working with the neurodiverse community, reading, going to any library or bookstore, exercising, martial arts, driving fun cars, comic books (DC preferred), spending time with my two amazing daughters, laughing with my husband, and snuggling with my two Labrador Retrievers, Bruce Wayne and Barbara “Babs” Gordon. (Yes, they are named after Batman and Batgirl.)
After her personal experience with TMJ and headache relief through Chiropractic care, Dr. Denaro was inspired to pursue chiropractic as a career. She has devoted her attention to caring for pregnant women and children. “My favorite part of being a family chiropractor is watching the growth of each family and being able to provide them with nurturing chiropractic care from pre-conception to postpartum and everything in between.” Dr. Denaro’s specialization for pediatrics ranges from newborns to teenagers.
Pregnancy Chiropractic care is used for comfort measures for women through all stages of pregnancy but also is essential for the growth and development of the baby. Dr. Denaro is certified in the Pregnancy Webster Technique. Utilizing this assessment and adjustment protocol, stress is taken off of the mother’s spine, muscles, and ligaments, allowing optimal room for the baby to develop, grow, and turn. Many women choose Webster Certified Chiropractors to prevent Breech pregnancies and C-sections.
Many parents routinely have their newborn checked by a Chiropractor. Learning to hold up their head, sit without assistance, crawling and walking are all activities that may affect a baby's spinal alignment. These important developmental stages are when a parent will have their child assessed by a Chiropractor.
Dr. Denaro uses different styles of adjusting babies and children to ensure that the adjustments are gentle, safe, and effective.
Denaro Chiropractic provides chiropractic for the entire family including pets. Dr. Denaro reserves time to adjust dogs, cats, horses and farm animals as well.

Urban Suburban Kids
Samantha Jason Lehman
Samantha is a working mom of two littles (ages 4 and almost 3) and is the founder/creator of Urban Suburban Kids. After becoming a mom she struggled to find answers to what seemed like basic questions regarding activities and resources that were specific to children in the area. Precious time that no parent has was spent googling “where can i find a stroller friendly trail” or “who offers dance classes for 3 year old” or “what playgrounds are fully fenced in” and “what animals are on this farm.” Keeping track of the google searches, the facebook comments, and the friend recommendations became overwhelming and out of the chaos UrbanSuburbanKids was born.
Samantha created a website and an IG account of the same name, with the goal of helping other families find the resources they needed (locally). The resource is free. The content is not sponsored. You won’t be targeted by ads. The site is constantly evolving and when she can find the time new content is added.
Samantha also shares activities and events via the stories on the IG account for UrbanSuburbanKids. She posts family friendly weekend happenings,, playgrounds worth driving to, custom birthday cakes, and much more. Becoming a parent is hard enough, the goal with UrbanSuburbanKids was to provide a platform where parents and caregivers can find a clear, consolidated reference list that they can continue to refer back to as needed. Samantha is a full-time Realtor in the Boston and North Suburbs, she lives in Wakefield with her husband, two kids and two dogs.

No Dog Too Small Dog Walking
and Pet Sitting, LLC
My name is Deborah Maida. I own and have operated No Dog Too Small Dog Walking and Pet Sitting, LLC Since 2013. My passion for caring and loving animals began when I was a young girl. I took care of all my family pets and loved doing it! As a mom, I wanted to integrate animals into my children’s lives. They were eight and ten years old at the time. This business was fun and allowed me the flexibility to spend time with them.
I dug deep especially during the tough times, early on. I am extremely grateful that my business has continued to thrive for ten years and is growing even further. WOW!
During covid, many customers were home based and working remotely, so our dog walking services slowed down considerably. I began to create other ways to attract and maintain our client base that would add to their pet care. Many people were working from home and began adopting puppies. I began marketing puppy playgroups, puppy training and became a Licensed Family Paws Educator. This program was created and developed by Jennifer Shryock, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC), served as a Board member of the International Childbirth Education Association and former special education teacher. As a Family Paws Educator, it is my role to prepare families with dogs for life with a baby.
No Dog Too Small’s Mission Statement:
To care for all our animals with patience, respect, and love. No Dog Too Small is committed to providing a unique pet care experience while adding value to your pet care needs by developing a secure and trusting relationship with you and your dog.

I have loved being able to support local families in their postpartum journeys providing support, information & reassurance during both daytime and overnight shifts! However, I wanted more!

This has been an amazing addition as I support families from all over through my virtual sleep consulting support packages! My approach to both postpartum support & sleep are similar in that I meet families where they are at and provide different options and types of support in order to help them achieve their goals in a way that aligns with their parenting approach and child's personality.
