How to find help around the house after birth?
Hello BPN! My wife and I are just days/weeks away from bringing our first baby home.
Both of our sets of parents would love to be able to help out as much as possible, but they all live on the east coast, so they have recommended that we hire someone to help with chores around the house like doing the dishes, laundry, general cleaning. Are there such services available? We are aware of professional maid services but our understanding is that those services usually focus only on things like cleaning the floors/bathrooms/dusting and don't really help with laundry/dishes.
Is anyone aware of any services or people that provide something like what we're looking for? No child-care would be involved in the service.
Any advice is appreciated!
