    Alba is a lifesaver!!!! Alba helped me the first 6 weeks of my sons life and continued to help me when I needed her even after that. Alba is so loving, nurturing, and understanding. She goes above and beyond to care for both mom, dad and baby and she is the absolute best guide when it comes to newborns! she never made me feel insecure, and she was always there for me when I had questions or concerns. she taught me so much and gave me the confidence I needed to be a better mom, especially in those exhausting newborn weeks as a first time mom. So grateful to have Alba in our lives and can’t wait to have her back when I have baby #2!

    Alba is simply amazing. She was with us for the first four months of our twins’ lives. She immediately helped with getting them on the same feeding and sleep schedules. She took good care of the kids, us, and even our dog. She instantly became a valued friend and confidant. She kept us sane while adjusting to life with newborn twins. We highly recommend her as she will change your life.

    Expecting our first child in January of 2015, we hired Alba for the first three weeks to help our transition into parenthood. This was absolutely one of the best decisions we made as new parents! She taught us much more than we could have ever learned from a book and we credit our child’s ability to sleep through the night already at seven weeks old to Alba’s instruction and presence.

    She truly cared for our child as if it was her own and we learned so much by simply by watching her interact with the baby. We tell each other and anyone who asks how grateful we are to have had her during what most people find to be a difficult transition. Our transition, however, was seamless under her care and instruction, and we couldn’t be more thankful.

    We highly recommend her, as we will forever be grateful that she come into our home and shared with us the first few weeks of our child’s life.
