We loved working with Lisa! From day one, she was dedicated to helping our family establish a nighttime routine and get as much rest as possible. She did this by sharing her expertise on latching, swaddling, introducing a bottle, pumping, mother/partner sleeping schedule, etc. By the end of her time, we had a well established feeding and sleeping routine. Lisa is absolutely wonderful and truly cares about the families she helps. On top of that, she’s a fun person to chat with! We definitely recommend her!

Lisa is absolutely amazing! From the first time I spoke with her I knew it would be a great decision to have her work with our family. She was our night doula for our second child and was great. Wish I had her for our first child. She is very professional and also so caring. She makes you feel so super comfortable and I trusted her very quickly with our son. She also gave great advice not just about sleep but also in general for the early weeks. Wish I could keep her with us longer. You will not regret the decision of having her work with Your family.

Lisa worked with us from the very first night our son came home from the hospital until he was 8 weeks old. (I wish we had planned to have her even longer!). This was our 3rd baby but first time working with a night nanny, and I wish we had had Lisa for kids 1+2 also!! Lisa is extremely reliable and was terrific with our son. She made me and my husband feel completely comfortable (important since my husband was initially unsure of the idea of someone being in the house overnight, coming into our bedroom, etc). Lisa helped us figure out the best sleep environment and routine for our son, and helped gently point out things that could help us establish that routing early on (best swaddles to use, etc). She helped stretch out his sleep and was able to give him a bottle to let me sleep longer stretches when I needed that. Now, at the end of 8 weeks, he is only waking up once a night which is amazing to me since our older two didn’t do those long stretches till much later. The nights she was here, my husband and I both slept better - that was our goal, and Lisa made it happen! We would absolutely work with Lisa again.

We worked with Lisa after our child was born, and I'm not exaggerating when I say it's the best investment we've ever made as a family. She is knowledgeable, dedicated, kind, and a fantastic communicator, and we felt very comfortable working with her. We hadn't hired anyone like this for our first two kids, and it's an investment, but the support she provided in helping us feel safe that our child was eating and sleeping well and on track were invaluable. Additionally we both got more and better sleep than with either of our other two kids in the first month, which allowed us to be better parents for all 3 of our kids. We would hire her again any time, and recommend her without hesitation to anyone having a new child.

Lisa is wonderful! She’s professional, personable, kind, and competent, and I believe truly enjoys her work. She adapts to your home and family. My daughter, husband and I have all benefited from Lisa’s presence. We started working with Lisa 3 nights per week but immediately increased the number of nights as well as the length of her contract. Lisa was recommended to us by a trusted neighbor and I would absolutely recommend her as well!

We had such a great experience with Lisa! She was the first doula we spoke to and immediately we knew she was the one we would go with! She was a referral from a close friend. Her communication was professional yet personable and easy. She’s knowledgeable, non-judgemental and super friendly. I would 100% recommend her services to anyone!
