Yes—in fact, we encourage it. Once you’ve booked your sitter, you can message with them via our in-app messaging. From there, you're welcome to converse by text, email, or even Skype/Facetime!
If you don’t feel 100% comfortable after your chat, please reach out to us right away and we’ll take it from there. We also recommend you add an extra 30 minutes into the first time you book a new sitter. This gives you time to chat in-person and helps the sitter get to know your family.
