Gemma's philosophy is that "Happy Parents = Happy Baby" and this is exactly what Gemma tries to achieve when working with each and every family.
Gemma has worked with many families from all walks of life. Starting her career in England, Gemma worked with disadvantaged families providing education to parents while providing cost effective ways to clothe, educate. and nurture their children. After emigrating to the USA in 2003, Gemma became a full time nanny for a newborn. It was here where she honed in on her newborn experience and fell in love with newborn care and loved being a supportive role to parents going through the postpartum period.
In 2012 Gemma had her first daughter. It was at this time where Gemma struggled. She'd had so much childcare and baby experience, yet she was not prepared for the sleep deprivation that comes with most babies. No book or education could have prepared Gemma for the sleepless nights. Gemma also didn't have family or friends around to help. She tried to hire a nanny to help out but struggled to find a good quality and caring candidate. It was at this time Gemma came up with the concept for New Parent Harmony; a service that would help families like her own. Families that needed help with laundry, cooking, and cleaning, but could also care for a newborn while Mom got the needed rest. Gemma soon after formed New Parent Harmony; a licensed company in the Maryland area dedicated to helping families venturing into the world of parenting. In the years since New Parent Harmony was formed, Gemma has successfully helped many families in the area and continues to bring her charasmatic and caring nature to people in need of an extra pair of hands. In the ever changing world, Gemma also continues to find new and innovative ways to enhance the parenting experience and bring families closer together.
