Breastfeeding requires patience, persistance and lots of support.
If you choose to breastfeed I'm here to support you and your baby throughout the entire process.
I'm able to recognize issues and refer you to wonderful professionals that can assist you further.
Lenght of the Assignments
The length of the assignments may vary depending on your needs but commonly being 4 to 12 weeks long. I'm open for longer assignments as well (4-6 months), depending on availability.
Availability, Work Agreement and Retainer
My availability is at a first come, first serve basis. To book my services a retainer deposit* of 25% of the total anticipated contract amount and a signed work agreement are required. Once I receive both, you are booked!
If I'm unable to work due to be booked or just unavailable, please, avoid paying agency fees. I'm part of a network of LOCAL NCS and I will gladly refer you to someone available to assist your family.
*The retainer amount will be deducted from the back end of the contract.
Where do you work?
I'm located in Las Vegas, NV and I provide services to mainly the Las Vegas area and surroundings.
How about taxes?
NCS are basically in a 'gray area' regarding taxes because we can be either considered as a household employee and meet the IRS requirements to be consideres an independent contractor.
I'm willing to be paid as a independ contractor (1099), specially if the assignment is out of state. In this case payments must have no deductions.
I'm willing to be paid as a household employee and having the accordingly deductions (Federal, SS and Medicare) on local assignments only.
I'm more than happy to refer you to a payroll company specialized in Household solutions.
If you are not sure if you are missing something for the nursery or if you bought too much of something you won't need, I'm here to help!
I'm always in tune for the latest product trends, products that are mom and baby approved, products that are not very helpful and also what's not safe for your baby (including the latest recalls).
I'm also available to run to the store, carry the bags and boxes and help you set up your baby's nursery.
*Prices may vary for babies that require extra care due to health conditions (breathing equipment, G-tube, heart monitors, etc).
