Testimonials
"Enricka was just amazing! She was reliable and we were ecstatic to have her help with our son. Enricka is kind, gentle, loving and highly intelligent. She knows so much about caring for babies, and although this was my second child she taught me so much that I did not know. I highly recommend Enricka."

"Enricka is a wonderful night doula. She has a very calming demeanor, which can be an oasis amidst a hectic and chaotic time of caring for a newborn. Enricka is particularly caring and gentle with babies; especially for first-time mothers, it's nice to be able to learn how to handle newborns from an expert. She's a genuinely thoughtful and caring person to boot. We would hire Enricka again in a heartbeat."

"Enricka is very loving and nurturing with both baby and mom. She is ready to assist 100% with any request and need at any hour. She is very positive, energetic and compassionate. Enricka is a wealth of knowledge, but if she doesn't have an answer she will research to find it. I would highly recommend her."
San Francisco Family

"Enricka helped us get the nursery ready, taught us baby care, helped with lactation, scheduling and sleeping. She is very loving towards our daughter and is a great parenting coach for us. She has made numerous suggestions that have made those first few weeks a positive and joyous experience. Every night she came with new ideas and really listens to us. Our daughter was sleeping through the night when Enricka left us at 3 months. We were very blessed to have her help us and our daughter.
Marin County Family

"Enricka is very kind and supportive to the entire family. She was so successful getting my first child to sleep we hired her again to care for our daughter with the same great results. I really appreciate all that she does...Enricka goes above and beyond!"
