Gerrit worked with us for the first 8-10 weeks after our son was born, and was an absolute life saver! I experienced some fairly frustrating complications a few weeks postpartum, and Gerrit was with us every step of the way, often times going above and beyond what I would have ever expected, to offer the encouragement and advice I needed to get through it. She is patient, open-minded, and shares her knowledge and offers insight, but never in a way where you feel she's telling you what to do. We had her with us a few nights each week for the first many weeks, and then a handful of visits during the day as our son quickly was transitioning from one stage to the next, and as a new mom - I needed some advice and help! With limited family nearby to help out, Gerrit stepped in as an amazing caregiver to help in any way, and I will always consider her part of our family.
