Shannon Houseman

Having Alyssa in our home feels like an extension of family! From helping out with the baby, cleaning, organizing-she brings a sense of calm and relaxation to our home. Her help has allowed me the opportunity to take some time for self care and strive for that balance that can be so difficult to find after having a baby. What a rarity to find that special person who is gifted at holding sacred space!

Alyssa has an innate sense for what a new mom needs, and is a natural caregiver and self-described neat freak. She is wonderful with both my newborn and 3 year old. My house was in order and the baby was bathed before I even noticed she had started working! Hiring Alyssa during those first crazy weeks at home with a newborn is a great way to get some much needed rest or just take a little breather for yourself. Your babe will be in great hands!

I had the pleasure of working with Alyssa after the birth of my 3rd child. She was an amazing resource to me when I struggled with breast feeding early on, and yet still remained a huge support to me when I made the difficult decision to bottle feed. She also helped me with some light housework and meal prep. Being a mother of three (ages 4 and under) was definitely an adjustment, but it was great to know I had Alyssa to call on!
