Ms. Suzy is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She always answers my questions in detail, and as a first-time momma, I have many. I highly recommend her.

We are so lucky to have worked with Susy. She helped us with our baby girl early on and still helps with her once and a while now. Getting sleep is so key to adjusting to parenthood. My husband and I would get so excited to see her. It was like a weight was lifted the second she arrived. We call her the baby whisperer and learned so much from her. My dogs are also big fans of Susy. Truly we feel very fortunate my doctor recommended her and connected us. Definitely look forward to having her around when we have another baby.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Susy. She was recommended to us through my OB, and we couldn’t have found a kinder, more knowledgeable night nurse to help us with our baby. She has a peaceful presence and counseled me as a new mom as much as she took care of my newborn. Susy also has so much experience and was able to spot symptoms for our pediatrician and calm us when we were nervous. We will be heartbroken to say goodbye when our contract is over.

Susy is a kind, enthusiastic and conscientious newborn care specialist. We relied on Susy to take care of our newborn for four months. She did an exceptional job looking after him and ensuring he was properly cared for, properly fed and that he developed the correct sleep patterns. She was patient and took the time to inform us of what needed to be done as we began to parent including how to bathe him, how to feed, how to change, how to swaddle and put down, the correct exercises to do with our newborn, and so much more. She exudes confidence in her work and has a naturally warm demeanor. She provides honest feedback and is 100% reliable. Susy provided us with invaluable tools, resources and intelligence that we will forever be grateful for. To this day we consult with her and check in from time to time. She feels like an extended member of our family.

Susy is amazing! She is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She helped us with our baby ‘s needs and schedule. She is trustworthy and reliable. We were able to sleep during the night knowing that Susy was taking the best care of our baby since he was only 1 week old. Her positive energy made us happy and reassured when she was at home. I don't know how we would have done without her. We would definitely recommend her!

Susana's help after our baby girl was born has been priceless. With her help, advices and encourage I was able to breastfeed my baby for 20 months though at the beginning I thought I will not make it at all! Her professional knowledge and support in good and hard times made our days with newborn much brighter!

Susy is wonderful!! She’s so caring and attentive to newborns and infants. She has a ton of knowledge and even taught us a few things as second time parents. She’s very trustworthy and reliable and, as a new mom, I was very comfortable having her in our home. Highly recommend!!!!
