About The Company & Founder

Gerri Levrini, RN, MSN, CNAA, President and founder of Mother & baby Matters, Inc. (formerly Mother's Matters), developed our program in 1991 to meet an evident need for supportive care to families before, during and after childbirth. Today's mobile society has separated many families who may not be readily available to help at this special time. Alternative birth situations, work responsibilities, and early hospital discharges are other factors that have created a need for the type of services provided by Mother & baby Matters, Inc. 

The company was founded and incorporated as the first postpartum Doula home-care service in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Lactaction Consultant services were added in 1992 and Labor Support Doulas soon followed in 1993. In 1995, the Family Care Assistant program was added to provide non-technical support to prenatal high risk clients on bed rest and assist mothers with their families during the postpartum period with routine household chores and activities.

Ms. Levrini has over 35 years experience in the field of maternal-infant health and professional nursing. As a board certified nursing administrator, she has held executive positions directing and marketing clinical programs for maternal-child and women's health services in hospitals across the country. Ms. Levrini received a Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing from California State University, Sacramento and a Master of Science degree in Nursing Administration from the University of California, San Francisco. She has also completed special training as a lactation consultant, and is board certified as a nursing administrator. Additionally, Ms. Levrini was the former president of the National Association of Postpartum Care Services. 

As the wife of a Retired Navy Commander and mother of two (and Grandmother of two!) she can personally relate to the needs of new mothers and their families. Both her personal and professional experience have enabled her to set high standards for providing quality service to Mother & baby Matters' clients.
