SERVICES & BOOKING
We do not take “last minute” clients. You MUST book early, and before delivery. You can’t book “too soon”.
Client scheduling widely varies between families, and we provide a range of care (anything from a minimum of 6 shifts up to several weeks or months of care), based on your specific needs.
**On average, most families book 3 days or nights a week for 6-8 weeks of care.**
