Why would I need an overnight doula?

Lack of sleep can leave you drained, frustrated and prone to illness. My clients worked very hard for their successful careers and lifestyle. The standard "maternity leave" does not always provide the recovery new moms needs.  The other top reasons to have overnight care are:

 

  • Lack of local extended family. 
  • Limited newborn experience.
  • Other children to care for.
  • Delivery via c-section.
  • Unforseen medical complications.
  • Mothers returning to the workplace.
  • Couples with a partner that travels.
  • Twins!

Tell me more !!

I arrive at your home at either 9 or 10 pm for a nine hour shift.
During our time together, we evaluate your baby's temperment and explore what works to soothe and keep baby content.  I'll watch for hunger cues, bringing baby to you for nursing. If bottlefeeding, either formula or pumped breastmilk, I'll lovingly snuggle and feed.
In the morning, you'll recieve a detailed summary of the night's activities.

Let's get started on your postpartum plan.

For this important life event, be prepared and be happy!
