I had the pleasure of having Vonda Dennis (Vonda) as the Baby Nurse of my newborn baby, Grace Berger. Vonda demonstrated superior working skills. Vonda was on time or early every single day. Further, she was incredibly neat and respectful of my home.
From the onset, Vonda was an excellent communicator. She kept logs and notes every day of my baby's progress. She provided me with both positive and negative feedback each day. She was not afraid to make suggestions on how I could make improvements which ultimately made things better for my baby.
Additionally, from Day One, Vonda implemented a schedule for the baby. This schedule covered feeding, diaper changing, bathing and sleeping. The well ordered schedule made my baby feel comfortable. In turn, my baby was only waking up one time during the night, which made for many peaceful nights for both the baby and myself.
Finally, and most importantly, Vonda provided my baby with a tremendous amount of Love. Truthfully, I could not have had my baby in better hands. I learned from Vonda to be immediately comfortable with my baby. My life as a new Mother and my baby's life definitely got off to a terrific start due to Vonda. I highly recommend Vonda to anyone seeking the services of a baby Nurse.

Both [preemie] boys thrived under her expert care (gaining approx 2 oz a day!) and we, as new parents, also learned much from her years of experience.
Gentle, effective, intuitive and completely custom fit; there is no one on the planet who can get a baby to sleep through the night better than Ms. Dennis.

I write to recommend Vonda Dennis as a baby nurse. Vonda cared for our preemie twin boys for approximately 5 weeks. Our boys were quite small when they came home, and were on apnea monitors.
Vonda handled everything beautifully. She is an expert at getting sleepy preemies to eat, and was not intimidated by the apnea monitors in the slightest. She made a point of reading the entire manual on the monitors so she was comfortable with them, and was soon the resident expert on the monitors. Both boys thrived under her expert care (gaining approx 2 oz a day!) and we, as new parents, also learned much from her years of experience. We were comforted by her knowledge of baby CPR, as well as general baby skills.
I give Vonda a recommendation, and would be pleased to speak with anyone about our experience with her. I just wish that I had been able to convince her to be our full-time nanny!
