I have worked in the overnight newborn field for 8 years. I have been assisting moms with breastfeeding , being an extra support system, helping moms and families get extra sleep at night while taking care of baby, getting newborns on a schedule. I follow up with my clients during the day if I notice some baby blues setting in or maybe just a phone call if I know they are struggling to let them know I am here for them. I wash and sterile breast pumping equipment as well as storing breastmilk. Help with Laundry and Dishwasher. When you wake up your focus can be on your recovery and your baby as well as your family . Dad's can get the sleep thats needed to be able to function at work while mom can get the support she needs at night as well. I recently completed my postpartum training through ProDoula so that I am able to add that certification to my services.

Amber Klein-Adam

Our experience with Tarzia was wonderful.  We had twins who were born 8/2015, and by early 9/2015, we were desperate for some sleep.  She came highly recommended, and was amazing.  She is a good listener, and she was reliable and knowledgable.  It was wonderful to be able to leave our sweet babies in her care and know everyone would get some much needed rest. 

 We give Tarzia two vehement thumbs up!!

To put it simply, Tarzia is a godsend. My husband and I never had a night nurse with our older son, and we didn’t think we needed one with our second. But after several straight weeks of sleepless nights, we decided to give it a try. When Tarzia arrived, she immediately put us both at ease with her warmth, professionalism, and knowledge. Our son was struggling with food allergies and gastrointestinal issues and was very fussy, to the point where my husband I had to spend hours bouncing and rocking him each evening. Tarzia quickly figured out the best ways to soothe our son and how to settle him down to sleep. She was never fazed by his screaming and had lots of great tips and ideas to share with us. Soon, she had our son on a schedule, and my husband and I went back to feeling like normal, functioning adults again. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Tarzia literally saved our family during this stressful time; it was the best money we ever spent!

Tarzia came to help us out with our 7 week old twins. She was fantastic. Not only a life saver allowing us to actually sleep a night through - we really could sleep because we trusted her entirely with our babies. She is wonderful with children, really knows what to do and our babies were very happy and relaxed with her - very happy to be soothed by her. She is also extremely punctual and reliable, and just a very nice person to have in your home. We loved Tarzia!
