"Just having the Karitane Nurse come to my home and tell me that I was doing a great job was great, but the tips and advice she gave me about winding and settling my daughter were invaluable..." Suzy, Tauranga

“Kirsten was amazing – when our regular nanny called in sick she had a temp nanny at our house by 9am – just in time for me to get to my big presentation at work – thank you!”  EM, Auckland
