Testimonial for Catrin Gunnarson

Catrin came to help us at the end of February 2021. I had a scheduled c-section, and I knew I would need help after surgery and with a busy 3-year-old at home. It was a hard time since our families couldn't come to help during the pandemic. 

I remember the day Catrin came to our house for the first time. I was in my PJs, very tired and sore, and she came in a happy, strong woman of care and action! She was exactly what I needed! I showed her around the house, and soon she was washing dishes, folding laundry, holding my baby, playing with my little guy, and asking me if she could make me a snack! She worked hard and was so helpful around the house, and my husband was always asking, "When is Cat coming again?" It made a world of difference for us those first few weeks postpartum.

She was also very empathetic and compassionate. I had a very hard time nursing at first, and she kept encouraging me and supporting me through those struggles.  Often I just needed someone to listen to me and what I was going through. She never judged and always had words of encouragement. She also gave me some great health tips. She is a registered holistic nutritionist, and I enjoyed talking about my overall health with her. She is very open, and it was refreshing to have honest conversation with a smart and caring woman. She was also really good at answering questions over text and phone. I felt like I could call her any time.

Catrin was also great with my 3-year-old and new baby. She played a lot with my toddler when we started going on little neighbourhood walks. I was so grateful for that because I couldn't run! She was very careful and wore a mask when she held the baby too. I felt like I could talk to her about things if I was feeling uncomfortable, and she was always receptive and willing to adjust. We had a really nice month and a bit together, and I would recommend her to anyone! I’d have her back in a minute if I could :)
