Les services de répit de Marraine Tendresse de l'Estrie

Our respite service for new parents in the Eastern Townships

In many cultures, parents have the support of the whole community when a child is born, and throughout the child’s development. While the mother is resting after giving birth, other people come to provide care for the newborn.

The birth of a child is a tumultuous time that requires constant presence and availability. At Marraine Tendresse de l’Estrie, we want every family to have access to support in the great adventure that is welcoming a newborn! So, our team of sponsors can offer you a free respite service in your own home.

In-home respite,
3 hours per week
for 12 weeks

Free of charge
and confidential

Whether as a preventive measure, for your own well-being, or when you are feeling exhausted, a sponsor can lend you a helping hand.

You can have the same sponsor visiting every week for 12 weeks during your baby’s first year of life. Your sponsor can give you a little time to take a nap, do chores, have a bath, etc.

Our sponsors are carefully selected, and we take time to get to know them so we can provide you with the best possible pairing.

I simply adored this service that provides such impeccable support. The pairing made between my sponsor, my daughter, and I was perfect. I feel lucky that I can count on the organization when needed. A huge thank you for your devotion!
