"Every sitter LIFEVINE has sent to me has been so great. LIFEVINE has created something lovely and reliable."

I work as a birth doula, and it is unpredictable as mothers go into labor whenever the baby wants to come. I am open to welcoming new LIFEVINE sitters into my home because of you. Every sitter LIFEVINE has sent to me has been so great. LIFEVINE has created something lovely and reliable. I appreciate their willingness to help me even in a pinch.

"Our LIFEVINE sitter was wonderful, our children LOVED her. Thanks again for stepping in and saving the day."

Our LIFEVINE sitter was wonderful, our children LOVED her. Thanks again for stepping in and saving the day. I said to my husband the next day over breakfast that last night was a lot of fun and one of our children piped up “it was for us too mummy!” Everyone was super happy with the experience. We will definitely be in touch again, finding LIFEVINE means we can finally start to explore New York.

"Our LIFEVINE sitter was wonderful — quite honestly the best babysitting experience we have had."

Our LIFEVINE sitter was wonderful — quite honestly the best babysitting experience we have had. The girls loved her, she arrived even earlier than she had to (which gave me more time to have the girls get used to her), and I cannot wait to hire her again! LIFEVINE is now a household name with us!

"Finding a regular sitter so my husband and I can go out and enjoy some time together is a piece of cake with LIFEVINE."

Brittany has been babysitting for us for years. We’ve used many of her sitters and my kids have liked them all. It’s very convenient to send one email or text to find a babysitter vs. having to make multiple inquiries. I know the sitters that LIFEVINE employs are verified to be experienced and trustworthy. The sitters always show up a few minutes early and clean up after the kids go to bed, so it’s great to come home to a tidy home. They’re great with the kids …and my 5-year-old and 3-year-old can be can be a handful. The girls are very responsive to texts to let me know how things are going. Life is complicated enough and finding a regular sitter so my husband and I can go out and enjoy some time together is a piece of cake with LIFEVINE.

"I was amazed by Brittany's willingness to work early mornings, late evenings and weekends to find the right person for us."

I had a baby last year and was lucky enough to be able to spend six months at home with her. When I found out I landed a new job, I was immediately most concerned about who would care for my precious little girl. I knew Brittany since she had previously babysat for us and I was also aware she had her own agency. Given her experience, I thought she might be willing to help us with the recruitment process. As it turned out, she was willing to provide as much or as little assistance as we needed. We decided to review the applications ourselves and compile a short list. Brittany then helped by conducting some of the telephone interviews, attending the in-person interviews, calling references, running background checks and guiding us through the decision-making process. She researched complex issues such as work permit questions. She helped us identify areas of concern which we may not have spotted by ourselves. She ultimately gave us the comfort of knowing that we covered all our bases and were making the right choice. Brittany was a wonderful resource to us. I was amazed by her willingness to work early mornings, late evenings and weekends to make sure we found the right person on time. I highly recommend her!
