In some careers, social distancing isn’t an option. So, one business owner in Southern California has made some lifestyle sacrifices to continue doing what she has been doing for two decades.
Kathleen Sullivan used to work in sales. She said she was successful, but selling things to people “is not who I am,” Sullivan said.
After seeing a classified ad in a newspaper for people to help new parents and knowing that she’s always been maternal, she said she found her new calling and signed up.
“I am trained as a postpartum doula,” Sullivan said. “And I’m also trained as a baby nurse, which is now called a newborn care specialist.”
Her company is called Soft Slumbers. Sullivan said newborn care packages are about $500, depending on the baby’s age and that overnight care can cost about $40 per hour.
