THE FIRST 2 WEEKS
The First 2 Weeks is an optional service provided for new or seasoned mothers who require 24 hour, hands-on care. This service is perfect for someone who has experienced past postpartum depression, as a gift for first time parents who don't have nearby support, or for parents who feel a bit of trepidation easing into their newest roles.
We help reduce the overwhelm and anxiety commonly experienced when bringing home a new baby or twins.
