Seeking Nanny / Post-Partum Doula
Wish I had Carolyn for a friend! Read on:
I live in the Bay Area and have a friend in Portland who just had her 2nd baby. I came up for a week to help out, but she's still having a hard time -- long story, including a c-section, complications, toddler sickness, hubby's job schedule, etc., but I was thinking about getting her some hours from a reliable, caring nanny service as a gift. Problem is, I know nothing about any services in Portland -- and am hoping that the mamas on your site could offer some recommendations for a very trustworthy, capable, sensitive service that could do a short-term placement. any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
