“To put it simply, Tarzia is a godsend… My husband and I never had a night nurse with our older son, and we didn’t think we needed one with our second. But after several straight weeks of sleepless nights, we decided to give it a try.

When Tarzia arrived, she immediately put us both at ease with her warmth, professionalism, and knowledge. Our son was struggling with food allergies and gastrointestinal issues and was very fussy, to the point where my husband I had to spend hours bouncing and rocking him each evening.

Tarzia quickly figured out the best ways to soothe our son and how to settle him down to sleep. She was never fazed by his screaming and had lots of great tips and ideas to share with us. Soon, she had our son on a schedule, and my husband and I went back to feeling like normal, functioning adults again. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Tarzia literally saved our family during this stressful time; it was the best money we ever spent!"
