Zoe was first recommended to us by our close friends who she was working for as a Nanny. At the time we had just had our first child and due to unfortunate circumstances had our planned doula coverage fall through and Zoe completely stepped up to help us out and took on nighttime coverage while still working days for our friends. In addition to being compassionate and helping us out of a jam we quickly found ourselves impressed with her knowledge, care and attention to detail. Not only did she arrive ready to provide us a much needed reprieve but came with deep knowledge on best practices, tips and tricks for keeping our baby happy and healthy and even went above and beyond when it came to general house tasks. Not only did we finally get some needed sleep but she covered even more tasks around our house than we asked for. It was a complete blessing to have found her in our time of need and we continue to hire her for help to this day.

Zoe has also proven to be thoughtful and supportive beyond the times we she has been working for us. Whether that is sending along useful articles based on conversations we have had in the past or even bending over backwards to provide us make-up coverage for nights when original plans fell apart for various reasons.

We recommend Zoe very highly to anyone looking for some help with their new bundle of joy.

In a world of social media, “parenting experts” are everywhere - the information overload can be so overwhelming and paralyzing, especially as first time parents… enter Zoe. The hardest thing to embrace as a first time mum was knowing how much you don’t know, so having support, both hands on and virtually, from a postpartum doula made all the difference.

Zoe’s knowledge in childcare and child development, as well as postpartum care (with a genuine emphasis on CARE) has made all the difference in our first three months as parents. Any new parents knows its easy to feel like your blundering through, and just trying to survive, Zoe’s demeanor is that of “you are the parents, you are experts in YOUR child” as she guides us with her own expertise. She has not only helped to educate, but has given us the tools and encouragement to implement new practices for ourselves.

From answers about baby sleep - both naps and nighttime, routines and schedules, lactation support, to the ever important parental care (self care IS caring for your baby, thanks for the reminder Zoe), developmental milestones, and even playtime (how do you play with a baby? Zoe knows).

She has been a delight to work with, her communication is excellent, and in a time that can be frightening and isolating, Zoe has ensured that post partum is not something we ever felt “alone” in. After working with Zoe, it is impossible to think of how different our experience would have been without her, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her, and will hopefully get to work with her again for future children.
