My husband and I are expecting a baby due at the end of March. I am very thankful to have maternity leave, but will need in-home care after my leave is over (late June/early July). I work from home, so I will be around and able to help and nurse the baby when not I'm not busy or on calls. While the baby is sleeping, there's no need to do housework or cooking (although you are free to use the kitchen!) so this is perfect for someone with homework or studying to do. We have 2 dogs, so you must be comfortable around them. They are very friendly but not as jumpy/annoying as a "typical" dog.
