Gig’s Nanny Doula and Childcare Service
Our Nanny placement process starts with a family consultation. Where we will come to
your home or have a zoom call to discuss Your family's needs and desires, We review Gig’s Nanny Service policy and placement process and discuss standards for hiring a nanny. A nonrefundable consultant fee is due at the beginning of the initial visit to get the process started. The reason for the family consultation is to allow us to get to know you and the family and to make the best match possible! During the consultation visit, we go over things like the nanny duties and pay rate. We answer all questions the family may have about our service and fees. We also provide you with interview questions when it's time to interview candidates. We talk with families about how to negotiate rates and we discuss what duties the family would like the Nanny to accomplish daily. and we talk about how to maintain a positive work relationship with your nanny. The nanny placement process can take up to 6 weeks on average. After The initial family consultation visit and the placement, payment has been made. We will begin our search on finding the best candidate for the job. By week 4 Gig’s will start sending You Nanny applications and Resumes to review. The nannies we send You are carefully selected as prospects that we feel would be best for your family. For each position we typically screen around 10-20 applicants and our goal is to dispatch to you ONLY the qualified nannies who we at Gig’s believe to be the best match For your family. Gig’s main goal is to take the pressure off of the families and make this process smooth as possible. Gig understood this is a new adventure for a lot of families. having someone new take care of your child/ren that isn't acquainted with your daily routine takes some time to adapt to. and we at Gig’s are here every step of the placement process. Before you meet any of the nannies, we will have screened them by phone, had a face-to-face interview if needed, called and emailed childcare-related references, conduct a social media/online screening, and verify CPR/First Aid and Certification. Once you find a nanny you’d like to move forward with, a full background check Will be done. The background check includes Driving history, county, and federal criminal report, social security verification, and sexual offenders registry check. If everything comes back clear on the background check, It's time to start the interviewing Process for the candidates.

Types of nanny positions are described below.
Full Time Live Out Nanny
A full-time live-out nanny position is where a nanny will work between 30-50 hours per week for your family. A typical full-time nanny prefers a set schedule in hours and would expect guaranteed hours each week.
A part-time nanny position would be where the nanny would work up to 28 hours per week for your family. Part-time nannies can vary from after-school positions, just a couple of days per week, a weekend position, or any other schedule as long as the nanny is guaranteed a certain number of hours per week.
This placement is if you need a nanny for less than three months or over the summer. A summer nanny will often be a college student or teacher looking to work as a nanny before the school year starts.
Taking a vacation may not feel relaxing when you have little ones running the show! Vacation nannies provide much-needed relief from day-to-day parental responsibilities and give parents time alone with each other. We can assist with finding nannies for vacations lasting 2 weeks or longer, and for shorter vacations on a case-by-case basis. Most parents want to spend time with their children on vacation, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a break every once in a while to see and do the things you want in a new place. Vacation nannies allow parents to relax and do adult things.

How to be a successful Nanny
If you love children and love being with them, well, being a nanny is the right profession. Countries all over hold trained Nannies in high regard. Hence, it is essential to have training in child care. Professional training will help to get high-paying jobs in good household setups. Therefore, our training courses allow nannies to become aware of all the essential aspects of child care. Families today do not prefer untrained nannies. They believe trained caretakers are safer and more reliable for babies. And it's true. Nannies trained with NannyQ achieve a high level of skills and industry knowledge for child care. They are equipped to help children and can communicate with their families there. We assess skills and readiness to care for children and develop the right care skills for the best career opportunities.

This includes capsules and a placenta print. The placenta is the organ that surrounds the fetus in the womb and allows for the exchange of nutrients, blood, and waste with the mother. It is expelled from the uterus after the birth of the child. The custom of consuming the placenta, often done as placental encapsulation, is centuries old, practiced most often in Chinese medicine. It is a controversial tradition that has been gaining traction in the United States for several decades.
What is placenta encapsulation?
Placental encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits. It is frequently taken shortly after giving birth, during a woman’s menstrual period, or during menopause with the belief that it helps counter some of the symptoms of menopause.
The tides are changing and modern medicine has now proven some of the benefits of placenta encapsulation that mothers have now known for ages.
There’s POWER in that placenta! Some of the benefits too of consuming your placenta are:
• Preventing and lessening the risk of postpartum depression
Replenishing your iron and helps prevent post-birth anemia
Lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin long after your birth.
To stabilize your ever-changing hormones post birth post-birth
To replenish your B vitamins and energy that were used during the labor and birthing process
Protection from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissue or membrane
Helps Resolves postpartum issues like high blood pressure, swelling, and, protein in the urine
Help establish early and healthy milk supply
