The Nesting Place was founded by two local moms, Laura and Jacqueline, who met after the birth of their children. They bonded over a mutual goal: to create a safe space on Long Island where parents could gather to find trusted resources and connection to help them feel supported and confident.

Meet Jacqueline Aiello, Co-Founder

For Jacqueline The Nesting Place is the lemonade that resulted from the lemons she found herself with as a new mom and returning to work. Jacqueline suffered from sleep deprivation and postpartum anxiety and had a hard time trusting her instinct. She noticed that she always felt so rejuvenated when attending in person mom groups such as La Leche League or the support group held at her local hospital. Jacqueline found that mothers were much more forthcoming with the true struggle of motherhood in person, as opposed to the countless mom groups on social media.

With that in mind, Jacqueline wanted to form a community based space that people could come in to meet other moms, hear their stories, offer support and maybe offer a bit of guidance. She believes there is something so empowering about a group of mothers together, sharing their truth and lifting each other up with a healthy dose of mama wisdom and perspective. Jacqueline hopes that families find The Nesting Place to be their solace, their place of guidance and support, and community. Jacqueline is mom to two sons, lives on Long Island and is an attorney by trade.

Meet Laura Siddons, Co-Founder

Laura has had a passion for moms and babies since she can remember. She became a birth doula in 2008 and since then has supported hundreds of mothers and families. She works as a birth doula and teaches childbirth education classes at The Nesting Place. Through her work as a doula and own experience in becoming a mother, her passion for supporting families on their parenting paths has only continued to grow. Laura wishes to connect families with resources and 1:1 support services to help them feel supported and make personalized, informed decisions throughout their unique journey.

She believes that parents can never have enough information and support around them; and she is honored to have the opportunity to realize her dream of opening a safe space where they can gather, share, find and give support. Laura lives on Long Island with her husband, and three children.
