Gentle Venture’s Training Center was born in 2006 when Nancy Hamm realized the vast need for training. The goal of the company was to educate newborn care workers in newborn care and to expand the standard of care to include all aspects of care. The classes are updated with each manual reprint to reflect this goal. 

The dedication of Ms. Hamm is well known throughout the industry. She truly cares about her students, encouraging, supporting, and mentoring them without an extra fee, for a lifetime.  

Ms. Hamm is an advanced certified NCS, Certified by the NCSA and has many continuing education certificates. Among them being:

  • Happiest Baby on the Block Certificate
  • Lactation Management Support
  • Bereavement Counseling
  • Postpartum (how to detect)
  • Natural Breastfeeding

Gentle Ventures is so honored to be able to present not only the Newborn Care Specialist Holistic class but also the only Holistic Newborn Nanny course and have continuing education classes . The Newborn Nanny course (Holistic and Basic) is impressive for people who would like to work with newborns through the eighteen-month range.
