Additional Information

With the understanding that life is both fluid and often complex, if there are needs you have that are not specifically addressed above, such as wanting more hours or an odd schedule, let's talk. I'm more than happy to accommodate new families if possible, and I'll always do my best to understand your situation and help in whatever ways my capacities will allow.

Requests for extended periods of postpartum help are not uncommon. While I am happy to accommodate, please note that I often have clients lined up far in advance, and it will be likely that I will not be able to accommodate last minute requests to extend my services. It is for this reason that I suggest new families avoid booking the minimum amount of time, and rather book the amount of time they believe they will need my services.
