Olive O'Brien (night doula):
"Olive saved us after our second daughter was born. With a toddler and a baby who was up all night, we were at each other's throats and not functioning at our jobs. Just knowing Olive was there made me finally be able to sleep soundly in between night time feedings. I completely trusted her with my newborn and eventually she was able to give me something I can't put a price on, full nights of sleep. I don't know how I would have continued to function in the rest of my life without her."

Vivian Sonnenberg (infant sleep consultant):
"Vivian came over and in one consultation was able to completely change how life with our infant had been going. She convinced us that my incredible fussy baby was just overtired. By following her instructions, my 3 month old daughter went from waking every couple of hours to sleeping through the night within days. She also started taking long, regular naps in her crib when she had previously been crying whenever she wasn't being held. Not only am I better rested, but so is my daughter. Her disposition is completely changed and she is such a happy baby now. We are incredibly grateful to Vivian and think that everyone could benefit from her years of wisdom."

Westside nanny agency:
"Mimi from Westside Nannies found me the perfect part-time nanny in less than a week. I needed someone quickly and Mimi came through. She found someone that was a perfect match for what I was looking for, and Mimi had done all the research so that I didn't to spend my time checking up on the nanny."
Dr. Noah Simons:
"Dr. Simons has a great demeanor with our girls and is incredibly patient and responsive with us. He does everything with the girls himself, rather then passing them off to a nurse, and he never ever keeps us waiting. He always calls back himself when we have a question and is always able to squeeze us in on the same day when something is wrong. His office is so refreshing compared to the other big offices in this city. It feels like going to an old fashioned, small town family doctor. "
