As working mother, I’m not sure how I would have made it without In a Pinch. All of the infant sitters who helped us have a passion and nurturing nature for babies that make me totally at ease leaving the baby. - Alice R.
I have used In a Pinch many times since my daughter, now 5, was an infant. My husband and I have no family in the area and use the service mostly for periodic date nights that are much needed. I enjoy the stress-free scheduling and have been happy with all of the sitters that have come to our home - Lynda G.
We have worked with In a Pinch for our babysitting needs for more than four years now. We have had a great experience every single time. Heather is great at matching the right sitter for every situation from babies, to toddlers, to bigger kids. She is efficient, responsive, and always willing to help even with very short notice. Our family loves our In a Pinch sitters and my husband and I love the convenience and professionalism that comes with working with Heather. - Katherine R.
I've been using In a Pinch for about 6 years and they've been such a lifesaver for our family! We've had probably 20 different girls keep our three kids over the years (some of them on a very regular basis) and we're always impressed. It's so nice to be able to email or text Heather and ask for a sitter even at the last minute. She always comes through and she really has a way of matching us up with the best sitter for our needs. As a working mom, it's such a relief to know that our kids are safe and well cared for. The sitters are always prepared – they call ahead to introduce themselves and find out about special needs. They've even been known to bring their own games and activities to keep the kids engaged. They're a very responsible group of ladies and I can’t say enough great things about them. They're just awesome! - Jennifer C.
I have used In A Pinch dozens of times since I moved to Memphis. Moving to a new city where I don't have any family to help me when I need it, In A Pinch has been an invaluable resource for my family. The sitters that have come have always been nice and respectful and Heather, the owner, has always been professional and quick to answer my calls. Most importantly, I feel like she does any excellent job vetting the sitters she hires because they have all felt completely trustworthy. - Amanda S.
