      5 /5

      Alisa was so wonderful to my family and I during that early newborn phase with my son. As first time parents, my husband and I felt more comfortable and confident caring for our son having Alisa around for guidance. She was patient, nurturing and a joy to be around. Very quickly she became like a member of our family. I would absolutely hire her again when I decide to expand my family.
