Caitlin Kaczmarczyk

We absolutely adored Angela! And more importantly, our twin boys did too!

Not sure how we would have gotten through those first few months of parenthood without her.  We have much gratitude for the two to three nights a week that Angela stayed with our boys. The extra sleep allowed us to be better parents AND better spouses.

Angela is nurturing, knowledgeable, reliable, flexible and so kind.

We appreciate her and our friendship with her! THANK YOU, Angela! xoxo

Angela has been a tremendous help with my newborn son! I was needing some care for him during the day while my older daughter was at school. There aren't many people I would trust to stay with my 2 month old, but Angela has such wonderful experience with little babies and I so appreciated her being there! It was also such a treat that she could run laundry, wash bottles and pumping parts, etc while I was away. She was also very helpful in talking about feeding/sleeping strategies and helped me make a plan with our little guy. I was introduced to Angela by her mom, Teresa, who is also a doula and had helped us with overnights right after my son was born. These two women have were the biggest help in our transition to a family of four. Thank you Angela!!

Angela has been a fabulous help for me. I have four children ages five, four, two and two months. All of my babies have been tough and gassy and fussy. None of them were great sleepers and I have always had to sleep train in order for them to sleep well at night. Two of the four were colicky. When I had my fourth and she was only wanting to sleep with me in bed and would wake up every hour or two to eat or with gas pain, I knew I couldn’t keep going without sleep and caring for four children under five for long. A friend recommended her and the moment she came into my home her calm and peaceful manor assured me I had found the help I neeeded. She helped me to gently stretch Her and also get her used to sleeping in the crib. It allowed me the rest I so needed. I breastfeed so she would bring her to me when she needed to eat or do a bottle of breast milk if I wanted to just pump. Her help has been a tremendous gift to our family. Now my baby girl will sleep on her own and is doing five hour stretches at night. Thank you Angela!!!

Angela is wonderful and has been such a blessing to our family. She helped us with our twins from about 6 weeks to 4 months and we were so sad to see her go. She was wonderful with the kids, on time and curteous and we trusted her completely. We were able to get a full nights sleep when she was here and always woke up to bottles washed and put away. We fully recommend her and wouldn't hesitate to use her again!

In May 2015 I had numerous complications after my c section which led to a 9 day stay in the hospital.  Our newborn was completely healthy and ended up being discharged several days before me.  He was able to stay in the hospital with us but we didn't have as much help from the nursing staff.  I was in pretty bad shape physically, and my husband was exhausted.  Angela came to the hospital and took care of the baby at night so my husband and I could get some rest.  She was flexible, prompt, courteous, and respectful.  I felt very comfortable with her and she took wonderful care of our baby.  She also came to our home for one night after I was released and we had the same great experience.  I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for some extra rest/support after having a baby!

Anglea provided overnight care for our twins.  She is fantastic!  Angela was very easy to work with scheduling wise and was also prompt and courteous.  She's a very warm and caring person and great with children.  I never worried about the kids and was able to get a good nights sleep.  Angela also helped with laundry while the babies slept which was great!

We were delighted to have Angela take care of our twin girls.  Her and Teresa provided a lifeline for us as my husband transitioned back to work, which was out of town, when our girls were 5 weeks old.  She came every other night during the weeks he was working and a couple of nights on the weeks when he was in town to provide extra relief for both of us.  Our girls took to her right away with her tender touch and calming voice.  We always felt extremely comfortable with Angela and knew they were in wonderful hands during the overnight hours.  Not only did having her in our home enable us to get the sleep we needed to care for our girls, she also helped by ensuring bottles and formula were ready to go for the next day and doing light housework, including lots of laundry.  With me being a stay-at-home mom, I also was able to pick up some tips on caring for the girls on my own as well.  After the five weeks we utilized Angela's services, it was like she was just suppose to be there loving on our girls.  We would highly recommend her and Teresa to anyone looking for help, especially those with multiples!

We had a wonderful experience working with Angela! Both she and Teresa made our postpartum transition with our second son so much smoother--I wish I knew about them when we had our first child! We mostly worked with Angela and she helped us out several nights a week overnight so my husband and I could get some much needed rest. She was always on time, was terrific with our baby, and always shared information about how the night went. She offered suggestions when I asked for them and advice when needed. Overall, we had a great rapport and I felt very comfortable having her in our home. At first I was pumping and she would bottle feed our baby and eventually we transitioned to all bottles and she was so helpful with that. I suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of my first child and wanted to set up a good support system when our second was born. Angela was probably the most important part of that support team and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
