Early Parenting Educator, Postnatal & Infant Care Doula, founder of Kids Actually
Welcome to Kids Actually, where expert advice and a dash of humor meet to make your journey through parenthood while living in Singapore a little bit easier.
As a mother of two who has been raising an active boy and a sweet girl in our Little Red Dot since their birth, I understand the ups and downs of parenthood while living abroad, away from family and childhood friends all too well.
That's why I've made it my mission to help new and expectant parents navigate the joys and challenges of becoming a new parent, both on a practical and emotional level, through my courses and services.

“Being in Singapore without your family and relatives having a baby is a challenge. You don't have help here with you who you can instantly ask for advice.
Dora is someone I can always turn to. And she has the best advices when it comes to parenting. She always has pointed me towards the goal and she guided me through the next step.
She is really good in showing different solutions for the problem and I can choose what I feel most comfortable with.I would recommend her to coach you through parenting and pregnancy.”
“Originally, I was looking for a Baby Care course for my helper. As a first-time expat mom without family around I wanted her to be a pro in looking after my baby. After talking to Dora, I have realised that there is a lot to learn for us as new parents: even though we attended other pre-natal classes, most of what Dora teaches, like baby sleeping, baby wearing or bottle feeding, were not covered in those other courses. So, I decided to sign up all three of us: our helper, my hubby and myself!
My main worry was my baby’s sleeping. I was looking for a technique that would ensure that eventually both my baby and me will get enough sleep, but without sleep training with the harsh crying-out method. Dora’s techniques on responsive settling were a godsend. Now I know what I can realistically expect from my baby at each month of his development and how I can help him towards independent sleeping.
The Fourth Trimester course is well structured and to the point. Dora explains complicated, healthcare-related concepts in a simple way, helping you sail through the course pain-free. I loved the many hands-on activities using a life-like doll: the step-by-step guide on how to bath a baby or how to swaddle them. We even got to try the breast pump and different baby carriers.
Now I’m a confident mama of a 1-month-old baby boy, who breastfeeds efficiently – thanks to Dora we have avoided nipple confusion. Overall, I felt that Dora was really knowledgeable, she has answered all of our questions and we had learned a lot! I highly recommend her.”
“I highly recommend Dora. We are so lucky to chance upon her. Not only does she cover pregnancy, the fourth trimester, and dealing with toddlers, she is the first professional baby proofing service available in Singapore.
She reorganised and baby proofed my house in such a systematic and thoughtful manner. I definitely recommend her service to all the busy mamas out there.
Dora goes beyond just dishing out educational knowledge. Her advice is personalised and practical. Best of all she implements.
Last but not least, she is very warm and friendly.”
