Is this acceptable? My DH has given me the clear to get biweekly cleaning help while in my last trimester and for a little while after the baby is born. On the schedule I set up, a cleaning will fall on Tisha B' Av. Should I change that day or not worry about it? It seems "odd" to have someone cleaning my house on that day...though I will be within the 1st month postpartum...btw the cleaning help costs 100.00 a visit hence only the biweekly service...

And it's a minhag taus (mistaken minhag).

I don't know if it's assur; if you are a yoledes it might be allowed for health/ hygiene reasons. It's so far ahead - why can't you change it to the next day now, or when you book? If you really can't I'd ask a rav if it's allowed.
