Rita Tower
Newborn Care Specialist

Specializing In Newborn Care & New Parent Support

Hi There! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Rita Tower, I’m a Newborn Care Specialist based out of Southern California. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to babies. As the youngest child of 9 siblings, I yearned for a little brother or sister. I often begged my mom to have one more, to which she’d reply, “grow up and have your own!” (spoiler alert: I did! 5 of them to be exact)

When I was 15 years old, I had an opportunity that would change the course of my life. I was asked to care for a sweet 16 month old baby girl. I spent that summer learning about, and caring for, that sweet babe. Years later, with her mothers passing Betsy, became a core member of my family. A daughter to me, and a sister to my own children. It was during my first summer babysitting job that I realized my love of caring for young children and supporting others through pivotal life moments.

My more than 25 years of experience as a child care provider has given me a wealth of competency in caring for newborns, premature newborns and also multiples. Backed by extensive experience and training, my understanding of the physical and emotional needs of infants is comprehensive and allows me to help educate parents on how to care for their new babies.

As a mother of 5 children, I have an innate desire to nurture-whether that’s helping a new baby learn healthy sleep habits or helping new parents feel confident in their abilities.  My goal is to provide skilled and specialized care for this exciting time in your life.

If you’re interested in newborn care, sleep coaching, or just need a consultation. I’m here to help! I look forward to caring for you and your family.
