I Wish I'd Known About Mother's Help
When I had my first child ...

Get ready! You're not going to sleep through the night for the next five years. You will constantly have food on your clothes and dark circles under your eyes. Your social life will suddenly revolve around conversations about poo and teething ...
Looking back I really wish I had known about Extra Help. Having someone take a bit of my work load off would have meant the world to me!
Everyone tells you how hard being a parent is, but until you have experienced it, you don't really understand. When I was pregnant with my first child Luca, people kept telling me some real horror stories!
I didn't want to hear anything negative about the precious baby growing inside of me. I was determined to do everything on my own and be the perfect parent. I'm American and my husband is Italian. We have no parents in England and at the time had a very small support system.
I completely wore myself down trying to be Supermum and my relationships suffered for it. I stopped being Stephanie and focused 100% on being Luca's Mum. By the time my second child Alexander was born, I was so exhausted that my immune system seemed to completely shut down.
I was sick constantly for a year. I put on weight because I was waking up in the night to feed Alexander and rewarding myself with chocolate. I felt completely blessed to have two healthy boys, but it was one of the hardest times of my life.

Extra Help offers services like cleaning, ironing, dog walking and help for new mums (and dads!) The Mother's Help, in particular, is really nice because it offers help by a CRB checked helper who can work alongside the parents so that they can get a little rest or catch up on other tasks.
If you think you could do with a little Extra Help then give us call today on 0845 375 1625 or for more information you can visit our website.
Until next time ...
EXTRA HELP BROMLEY
I am an enthusiastic entrepreneur, who is highly self-motivated and passionate about helping elderly people remain in their own homes for longer and giving others more time for themselves.
You could say that entrepreneurship runs in my blood. My father owns his own business in America that he built from the ground up and he has been very encouraging of me doing the same.
Through my business Extra Help in Bromley, I can help everyone from busy professionals who need help with house hold tasks such as cleaning, ironing and dog walking, to elderly people who require assistance with shopping, meal preparation and transportation to appointments.
It can be very hard to find good home help, but with my personal interviewing and vetting process I only send the highest quality home helpers and cleaners to you. I guarantee to never place a cleaner or home helper in your home that I wouldn't have in mine.
