ANDREA SCANNELL, MSEd., Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Certified Lactation Counselor, DONA trained Postpartum Doula, Infant Care Specialist
In her Private Practice in New York City, Andrea works one on one with families to provide sleep support, breastfeeding support, infant care education and early parenthood coaching. Her NYC classes are currently provided at 92nd Street Y and City Births. Information about her sleep consulting services can be found at Dream a Little Dream Sleep Consulting.
With twenty years experience working with children and their parents, the birth of Andrea’s own child prompted a new endeavor: in 2010, Andrea created MOMally. It has since become a network of more than 2,000 moms, and a vital resource for new parents. MOMally’s New Mom Support groups, MOMally Parenting on Meetup.com and MOMally’s Facebook Community have helped a generation of local moms get support and find friendship.
“Andrea is emotionally intelligent and a truly non-judmental consultant. I have spent a lot of time one on one with her as well as observing her working with others. She is open, allows people to have their feelings, but still maintains control (particularly in group sessions) so feelings that pop up don’t swirl out of hand. Her workspace is a safe spot for all. When you are dealing with new parent issues, it is important to work with someone who listens and is trustworthy and, in group situations, holds the expectation for others to do this as well. Andrea excels in her calling.”- Erin G. Breastfeeding client, Infant care class student, MOMally
“As a new Mom with limited family support, Andrea gave me my sense that my instincts were correct — all I needed was some help with the skills to fulfill how I saw myself as a parent.”
-Tracy, Postpartum client, NYC
