This is just another option, related to social services.
Could you provide some more context?

call girl....


Explicación:
take the connotation however you please... remember the Vargas LLosa novel Pantaleón y las visitadoras...

... Without any description of the position, that's what comes to mind...

Synopsis:
Captain Pantaleon Pantoja, an outstanding, exemplary, happily married army man, is commissioned to organize The Visitors Service, an ambulatory prostitute system created to placate the sexual needs of soldiers assigned to distant posts in the Amazon Jungle. Pantaleon carries out this mission with obsessive efficiency and it becomes a resounding success. The appearance in his life of La Colombiana; a subduing mysterious woman; and becoming the victim of extortion by "El Sinchi"; and influential and corrupt journalists; muddle Captain Pantaleon Pantoja's objectives and mark the beginning of many conflicts that outline the story.

social worker


Explicación:
If followed by "social" it's "social worker", if not then it may be so understood, or maybe not. And if there is no more context you might be stumped.

Results 1 - 10 of about 554 for "visitadora social".

Midwife


Explicación:
I don´t want to add more trouble to the discussion, but midwives are also considered as "visitadoras", at least in Spain.
They call on a couple of times after you´ve had the baby to make sure everything is fine.
Just an option :-)
