"Having Gena on hand to ask questions, assist with baby soothing, calming techniques and help while I was healing post-op C-section was really valuable."
"Seeing Gena's car in the driveway makes me feel like everything is
going to be okay."
F & W
"Gena arrives promptly, is very easy to work with, calm, and respectful of our place. We had been struggling. Our newborn was soothed, calm, and happy in her hands. We both got a good night and woke up to a happy baby. It really helped us replenish our energy. We would definitely recommend her."
