Lisa worked for me on a few ocassions as a night nurse. She is an expert with newborns and I was comfortable knowing my baby was in good hands throughout the night. She is easy to work with, gentle and nurturing.  I would recommend Lisa.

My husband and I hired Lisa for post partum services and it was the best decision we have ever made. I have heard from countless friends how hard the first few months are with a new baby, not only with the sleepless nights but how bad the breastfeeding experience was for them. I was determined to not have the same experience, specifically with breastfeeding. Lisa is also a registered nurse and a lactation consultant, after our consultation I was completely sold. She is incredibly knowledgeable, but beyond that she is warm, caring, and I could tell she knew exactly what she was doing. There are so many variables that come into play after the birth of a baby. Friends have mentioned to me that they experienced post partum depression, which is another variable I wanted to avoid! Self-care is so important and easy to overlook, having Lisa with us during this important transition time prevented every single thing that I was worried from happening after bringing home baby. The breastfeeding has been a joy, not the painful journey that I was told it would be. I am exclusively pumping as my son had trouble latching, if Lisa was not here to guide me we would both be very stressed and frustrated! My son is thriving and has gained back all his birth weight and then some. All three of us are doing fabulously and I attribute all of that to Lisa!
