    "My daughter Bo was born in May 2010, 2 weeks early and thankfully Jane was on hand to come and assist us through the early days. Unfortunately Bo had a viral infection when born and so we ended up in hospital for her first week. This however didnt stop Jane from not only visiting us and looking after Bo in hospital so I could rest but also managing the day to day tasks in my home. Janes support to us has proved invaluable thus making my first three months with Bo so much more memorable and enjoyable. She is willing to assist with all areas of care for Bo and I trust her 100%. I would certainly recommend Jane to any prospective mother in need of both physical and emotional support throughout the early days." (JO, Nov 2010)
