Marcia Echavarria

Nekaiya was all that my new baby and I could ask for in a postpartum doula. During the first visit, she came probated to answer my questions and come up with a plan. Nekaiya is warm, genuine, and knowledgeable. She never hesitated to help with anything and could even anticipate a need before I asked. Nekaiya has been a blessing to Carter and I.

Nekaiya watched my 3 year old, 1 year old, and our friend's 6 month old for most of the day this past Saturday.  She was recommended to us after we had an unexpected last minute mix-up with our usual sitter.  She was very professional from the beginning, and allowed both my kids to set the pace on when they were ready to meet her.  When we went to leave, she made sure to distract my daughter by asking her to show her all of her toys.  Nekaiya sent updates, including photos, throughout the afternoon and into the evening.  She notified us when all of the kids went down for the night.  When we arrived home, the kids were all sleeping, the kitchen and dining areas were cleaned (including bottles and dishes!) and all the toys were picked up.  Additionally, Nekaiya left detailed notes on each of the kids on my table, and even sent a very detailed email to me and my friend.  The next day, my daughter told me she had a great time playing with Nekaiya.  This is the best review a mom can ask for!
