We had our first baby (boy) end of January 2024, and Erin was very helpful in the early weeks of childcare. She supported me with breastfeeding, baby wearing, bottle feeding, baby's first bath, baby's first nail cutting, light housekeeping, and more. She checked in on how I was doing and feeling at every visit, and helped me feel confident as a mother. Erin is very punctual and professional and kind, and I am so glad she was part of the first two months of my postpartum and childcare journey. We completely trusted her with our baby, and that allowed me to step out for walks, postpartum massage, and a short lunch  date while Erin successfully cared for our little baby.

Erin came into my home after I had given birth to my second daughter. The help and care she provided not only me and my new baby, I will forever be grateful for. Erin helped care for my first daughter who was a toddler at the time, she helped me with things around the house, she checked in on how I was feeling. She was everything and more that I could have ever imagined a Postpartum Doula to be. Her gentle, kind, caring, and attentive presence is a true gift and I am so happy she is sharing it with so many others.

Erin and Barb were invaluable to us in the first few weeks of having the twins home from the NICU. Before they came home, Helping Hands 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!
