Satisfied clients of Janet's:

"As a new mom, I was very nervous about how to get my new baby to sleep safely (among other things). Janet got my little one sleeping in his bassinet within the first few days and by the time he was two months old he was sleeping for 6-8 hour stretches. Without Janet, I could not have gotten him to sleep for so long. She also acted as a wonderfully experienced second set of eyes whenever I was concerned about my baby’s health. I gained a huge amount of peace of mind having Janet help care for him. If I have a second baby, I will definitely be calling Janet again. Thanks again for everything!" ~Mary

"I could never thank Janet enough for helping me have the delivery experience that I so strongly hoped for and will always remember her fondly. I hope to have her help with my next pregnancy and would highly recommend her to friends, family, or any expecting mom who wants to get the most out of her labor and delivery." ~ Gabi
