Additional Information

New Family Needs accepts and supports ALL families of ALL identities.

Also, we understand that life is both fluid and complex, so 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 nuances when possible, and I'll always do my best to understand your situation and help in whatever ways my capacity allows.

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.
