"We hired Kim for postpartum/overnight support for our second baby, and she was a lifesaver. Our daughter is an especially fussy baby, and there were nights when she would only sleep when held. It was amazing to have a few nights a week when we knew we would have guaranteed sleep -- for me, when recovering from birth, and for my husband, who still had to get up and work in the morning. Kim provided recommendations when we asked for it, but was also not pushy and honored any requests that I made. She was so patient with our crying baby, and a helpful support for me during the nighttime feeds (when she'd bring the baby to my room to feed). Kim also made helpful recommendations/referrals to other professionals whose treatment made a huge difference in our baby's health.
We looked forward to every night we had with Kim. I can 100% say that having Kim's support helped my mental health and helped our transition to a 2-kid family. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!"
