Barbara was wonderful to work with.  She has a calming and reassuring presence that was appreciated as I cared for my twins.  All consumed with care of the babies, Barbara helped me focus on what I needed too. I could leave my babies in her care with confidence and ease whether it was just for a nap or to go to appointment for myself.  She offered the respite and encouragement that we needed.    I would highly recommend her.

Barb helped us so much when our second child was born. It was right after my husband returned to work and her calm, knowledgeable and caring presence (and extra pair of hands around the house!) made our transition to a family of four much easier on us all. Not only did she perform light chores such as folding laundry and fixing lunch, she also helped me sort through some breastfeeding issues and soothed the baby while I napped or showered. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate everything she did for us. Thanks Barb!

Barb was invaluable to us in the first few weeks of having the twins home from the NICU. Before they came home, Barb came over to help us organize our various "stations" throughout the house, and we developed a plan for doula care for the first few weeks which involved one day and one night shift per week. We felt at ease leaving the little ones with Erin and Barb. It was clear that their experiences as mothers as well as experience with twin families as part of the doula training made them confident in their ability to care for twins. While we took a nap during the day or slept at night, they would care for the babies and do light housekeeping like laundry and dishes. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other families looking for a life preserver in the early weeks!
