“I was lucky enough to discover [Ariel] from a query I posted on Breastfeed Chicago!’s facebook wall when we were in desperate need of postpartum night care for our newborn twins this past December. Ariel came into our home a few days after a bad experience with a night nurse. After speaking with her briefly on the phone, we could tell that she was not only qualified to handle our babies, but would bring a calm energy into what had the potential to be a hectic situation.
Ariel was extremely professional (which my hubby loved) and also provided compassion and understanding for a new mom on the mend (which I loved) and she was incredible with our newborn babies (which we loved). Her calm energy and professionalism allowed us to get rest knowing that our little treasures were in such capable hands during the night.
She was instrumental in helping us establish a routine for the babies – the night schedule was the most challenging part, and we collectively came up with a routine which had them sleeping 11 hours straight at 10 weeks! In addition, as first time parents, she served as a source of emotional support to both my husband and me. She was also amazing at following our request to log all activities on the BabyConnect app so we could monitor the babies’ feedings, sleep and diapers.
Ariel far exceeded any expectations and we are beyond grateful for her assistance in navigating the unchartered territory of parenthood. Her services definitely helped us gain the confidence we needed to handle two babies!
