My husband and I asked for recommendations and also interviewed a few possible candidates 6 months prior to my due date. We came across this agency and after reading reviews we asked to see Mrs Yoon Young Lee. She was so pleasant and appeared to be receptive upon meeting her so we signed up immediately.
I delivered 2.5 weeks earlier and was worried we would get someone else. But Mrs Lee (emo nim) finished off her last job with the previous family and came straight to us the day I was discharged from the hospital. She has only been soooo great and helpful. My husband was able to return to his work immediately. She takes such good care and really loves my daughter. Through her many years of experience, she is willing to teach me how to care for a newborn, but also willing to listen to my suggestions as well. Mrs Lee is always on her feet taking care of the baby and me, or cooking up something amazing in the kitchen. My husband and parents have done multiple runs to the American and Korean markets so that we can start out with carrot juice in the morning, hot meals for lunch and dinner, and snacks in between. She has helped with breast feeding. And is a firm believer that I be well rested (as much as possible) to recover from my c-section and for increase milk production. She will accompany you to your appointments if needed, which was always helpful.
Lastly, I enjoyed having company during the day and the many conversations we have shared. We tried to extend her stay but most likely unable to because of her next obligations. She works really really hard and we are going to miss her immensely (and I know that my baby will as well). Mrs Lee is really popular so if you can, sign up as soon as possible!
