"Kathy is very caring, she loves the babies she looks after, and she genuinely wants to teach parents how to interact with their babies for a happy family life. Our family is very lucky to have benefitted from Kathy's teaching." ~ L.A.P., Los Altos, CA
"In just a few short months you've helped us so much...as parents and as a family!" ~ B.C., Lexington, MA
"We were apprehensive initially with hiring someone to take care of them at night, but you were so quickly comfortable and comforting. We appreciate your advice and experience also - you have helped us so much in these last months." ~ K.F., Needham, MA
"Never having obtained any outside assistance for my first two children, I decided to enlist the help of Newborn Family Care upon the arrival of my third child. I am so happy that I made the choice. Not only was it a great help to have experienced, trustworthy people to care for my baby and allow me to get the rest I need to be a good mom to all three of my kids, but dealing with an agency gave me the flexibility to decide when I needed the extra help and when I could go it alone. I gladly recommend Newborn Family Care." ~ A.R.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kathy. She took care of both of our kids when they were infants.
Words can not adequately express my positively strong feelings towards Kathy and the help that she gave both me and my whole family during our first few months with newborn twin boys. I am a mom with experience- I have two daughters, 5 and 2, and the idea of adding two more children to our already busy family was pretty daunting. I was also extremely determined to breastfeed my twins, and needed to find someone who would help me navigate the process.
Initially, I wasn't sure if I really "needed" help at night with our newborn. My husband and I both had some reservations about allowing a stranger into our home just as we were trying to find our way as new parents. Any doubt was washed away by the first night home from the hospital. We were terrified and exhilarated, and Kathy did a beautiful job of helping us navigate this new territory. She is incredibly supportive and thoughtful without being overbearing or intrusive in any way. Every time I elicited her opinion she would first ask, "well, what do YOU think?" Such a simple act yet it had an immeasurable impact on my self-confidence as a new mom. As the nights unfolded, we were increasingly more grateful for Kathy (I didn't think it was possible considering how happy we were with her from the beginning!) Kathy not only provided unbelievable care for our daughter-we literally trust her with our baby's life- but also for me. She was a wonderful support for a nursing mother as I learned the ropes- I credit my positive experience with breastfeeding to her. She spent time listening to me, talking to me, and helping me get sleep in-between feedings, all which helped my milk supply and moreover, my mental health! Unlike many other night nurses, Kathy supports parents' decisions about parenting and doesn't believe in "training" parents or babies; she deferred to our philosophy and wishes while providing guidance. I couldn't recommend her business more highly! Although we had to say goodbye for now (and I was heartbroken to do so!), we will hire her again in a heartbeat if we are lucky enough to get pregnant again!
