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!

My neighbor, Jessie, is a partner at MotherTree Birth services. They provide doula services. She can be reached at www.mothertreebirth.com. Jessie's a great person.

ABC Doula Service is FABULOUS but don't know of a nanny service. www.abcdoulaservice.com

Renaissance Chilbirth & Postpartum Professionals is a Doula group in Portland that can support a wide range of hours. We can do days, evenings or over night. Please feel free to contact me, as I am a Postpartum doula with this group and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Take care. Tiffany

I've also heard that Vicky York is a wonderful postpartum doula. Unfortunately I don't have her contact info.

I know nothing about any solutions and I am praying that the mamas on your business could provide some suggestions for a very trusted, able, susceptible services that could do a short-term location.

Our unique self-guiding CPR course and First Aid course are a cost-effective, time-saving alternative for those individuals who need to learn the fundamentals of Basic Life Support but whose schedules may not permit lengthy lectures and expensive instructors.
