Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. I have worked with over 500 families for the last 10 years and most all say the same thing: "How do people do this without your help!"

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. "Kathleen is a gem. Warm and compassionate, she offers a wealth of knowledge and experience. My family is especially indebted to Kathleen for spotting early signs of an illness in our daughter that prompted us to get her medical attention fast -- something that proved of critical importance."

Holly, mother of twins

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. "Kathleen was the doula for our daughter's first couple of months. What she taught us newbie parents was amazing. How she bonded with our daughter was even more so. When she left we all cried. I think we are going to have another kid solely to bring Kathleen back again. All 3 of us agree---we could not recommend Kathleen more."

- Tom Schulte

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. "Kathleen Sullivan knows what your baby needs even before he/she does. Experienced, kind, giving and gentle, Kathleen made my husband and me feel like we were getting off on the right start with our newborn even before we brought him home from the hospital. She was charming and fun to have around the house, as well as extremely trustworthy, which was a big relief for us because we're very picky and particular about inviting relative strangers into our home. She has a very calming presence that gave us a sense of security. as well as a wealth of knowldege which she willingly shared with us as she tought us how to nurture our baby. We couldn't have been happier with Kathleen. Two thumbs way up... well, three if you count Baby Jacks!"
