I honestly can't imagine what our experience would have been those first two weeks home without Kathleen. Professionally she is timely, efficient, respectful, independent and needs very little direction for basic tasks. Personally she is positive, kind and I appreciate her sense of humor. We had a few tough breast feeding moments and thankfully Kathleen has good knowledge on the topic and helped tremendously. I absolutely got more sleep the nights she was here and I know that helped with my recovery. I would gladly recommend her to anyone I know and even those I don't. She's amazing and we'll be missing her. Thank you so much from the Vincent family ??

I'm not sure where to start! I questioned if I needed help with a newborn and a toddler on top of my husband being deployed and it turned out I needed every second of her! Kathleen is amazing. She came in everyday and went to town. She cooked for me (and included my daughter when she wanted to help), meal prepped, cleaned, did laundry, changed diapers, straightened up my house, babysat my kids if I needed to get things done, taught me SO much and my daughter as well, etc. She saw something that needed to be done and did it. She was also there for me emotionally during postpartum when I had some harder days. Everyone needs a Kathleen even when you think you can do it all. Thankful doesn't begin to cover how I feel for her! We miss her so much and wish we could have her here everyday.

Kathleen was an absolute lifesaver. I was struggling with postpartum anxiety and having my tiny baby at home after a NICU stay, so hired Kathleen to help out. She provided enormous amounts of emotional support in the early days, helped around the house with laundry, tidying, dishes, bottle prep, small projects (for example, she noticed I had bought some curtains for the nursery but hadn't hung them yet and offered to do it for me), did lots of meal prepping, helped me prioritize resting, and of course was beyond wonderful with my daughter. As a first time mom, I learned so much from watching her interact with my daughter and my confidence as a mom grew tremendously in the two months she was with us. She was incredibly proactive with offering to help out with things I hadn't considered asking to be done. I can't recommend hiring her enough - she changed my experience with motherhood for the better.

HIGHLY recommend Kathleen. She is a baby whisperer, very knowledgeable, proactive and intuitive about tasks that would be helpful to us without us even having to ask, and frankly a joy to have around. We looked forward to her visits immensely and would recommend her to any family. Couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Kathleen was a huge help when my family needed a hand! Our extended families live far away and we needed support overnight in the early weeks with our newborn. Kathleen responded quickly to our request, was a great communicator, was always on time and took care to check in on all of us to make sure we were doing well- not just the baby. Having a knowledgeable professional to share with and ask questions of was a huge bonus for me as a first time mom. We highly recommend Kathleen to support your family!

Kat was our postpartum doula in December and was fantastic in my healing process. I had post birth complications and she was able to come on short notice and care for me and the baby while I was ill. She managed my medication for me and was very proactive and responsive to my needs. She also helped with my toddlers and they loved her during our time together. Kat also helped manage the day to day of life with toddlers and a newborn. Taking a lot off my plate as a mom to a new baby and toddlers. Her energy is otherworldly and her efficiency is impressive. Kat has become a good friend to our family and we cherished our time with her.

We were gifted a week of Kat’s time from a dear friend (for anyone who’s wondering, this is a FANTASTIC gift). Frankly, we didn’t know we needed a doula until we met Kat. At the time she joined us, our boys were one month and three years. Kat was a calming presence in the sudden chaos of having a newborn and a toddler. Although she excels at taking care of the tiniest of babies, she was able to easily toggle between the two ages and was a great resource to help us figure out how to organize our life and home to accommodate. The other thing I loved about Kat? She just KNOWS. She intuits what you need without much direction. She sees what needs taking care of (the laundry with two kids. Oye), and just does it. Having Kat around was a joy, and a gift. We could not recommend her enough.

Kat came into our lives when my son was three months old. When we interviewed, it was obvious right off the bat she would be perfect for our family. Talking with her did not feel stressful or anxious. She was (and is) so warm and attentive. I struggle with some very specific OCD and she never made me feel like my requests were ridiculous.

She did everything and anything (and without asking). While we did negotiate her job responsibilities, she took on other tasks that she knew I would appreciate especially postpartum. Having Kat in our home was therapeutic. The way my son has just always connected with her has been a huge blessing. I’ve said this before and I mean it: there is a very small list of people I trust to take care of my son and Kat is at the top of the list (and probably always will be).

Some of the responsibilities Kat took on from three months to three years have been diaper changing, burping, meal prepping, bottle prep and cleaning, laundry, house hold cleaning, crafting, painting, reading and everything in the middle. When the time came for me to go back to work, Kat was there to help us out. Going back to work for me wasn’t overwhelming because I knew my son was getting the best level of care there was. The last three years would have been so different without Kat. As my son grows up, it brings me joy that many of the memories from his first few years of life will have Kat in them. She is one of the biggest blessings in our life.

My son is three years old now and absolutely adores Kat. We are lucky to still get Kat for date nights. She will always be part of our family and I am eternally grateful for the love she has given to my son and the professionalism she has shown me and my family.

Anyone that is lucky enough to have Kat join your family while you navigate being a new parent has quite literally hit the jackpot.

I couldn't imagine transitioning into a new family without Kat. She provided individual support for all members of our family - mom, dad, baby and big sister in a seamless way that held us together during a hectic time. She has the uncanny ability to take care of not only things you need done in the house but also the mental load without you asking her to do it - which is truly unique and special of anyone providing support for your family. I can't tell you the magic it is to wake up well rested to a sparkling clean house, a happy baby, and a delicious meal without you having to say what needed to get done in the home or what you needed emotionally and physically. She became a part of our family and I encourage you to let her be a part of yours. She's a truly fantastic person and I couldn't recommend someone highly enough.

Kat was a crucial part of our family in a time of need. My wife suffered an unexpected health crisis a few days after my second daughter was born and needed to be hospitalized for several weeks. When we needed support the most, Kat came to the rescue! We hired Kat as a nighttime doula for 2.5 months, and were endlessly impressed and reassured by her willingness to help the family in any way, her punctuality, and her organization. She was always a trustworthy resource and incredibly knowledgeable, especially when our baby got sick. I was constantly comforted by her open and honest communication, in particular the detailed summary she provided at the end of every shift. We will deeply miss having Kat as a part of our family, future families will be extremely lucky to get the privilege to work with her!
