What Our
Clients Are Saying

Brenda was amazing!! She not only took care of us, she kept track of all baby's symptoms and empowered us to get the best possible for our little angel. She saved us!! We are forever in debt to her for helping us thrive in baby's first week. I would recommend her to everyone I know, especially those struggling with reflux!

Sarah S.

She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of newborn and small child development and resolutely committed to the safety and well-being of the baby. She provides unconditional, non-judgmental support to mothers and will implement your care preferences to the letter. I recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation.
