This is a great opportunity for mom's with kids in school, nurses/nurses aids, awesome grandma's and anyone looking to make a meaningful difference in a new mother's life. Certification is not required, but a desire to learn is a must.
Mother’s Helpers will work in the home of customers who have recently brought a baby home. You will “mother the mother” and dad’s too as they adjust to this significant time in their lives. This means light cleaning, making sure mama has plenty to eat and drink, clean warm resting areas, and a tidy bathroom. When mom needs a break for some much needed alone time to shower and rest, you will ensure that the baby is well cared for. You might pick up groceries on your way, fold a load of fresh towels, and even tuck mom into bed with her snuggly baby and listen to her birth story.
These are hourly positions, 24-7. Book your availability ahead of time - no on call unless you prefer it! What we are building is a new kind of community resource in which we ALL can benefit.
