Rest and recuperate with the assistance of Postpartum Doula Support
Overnight services are available to families who prefer nighttime care of newborns or for breastfeeding support overnight.
An Overnight Doula assists the breastfeeding mom during feedings or cares for the baby through the night. If a breastfeeding mother is newly home from the hospital, the doula can help the mom with latching or other breastfeeding issues during the night feedings. The doula will change the baby and settle the baby for the mom, thus shortening the mother’s awake time. Once breastfeeding is established, moms will often pump breast milk for the night feedings. The doula will care for the baby and the mom will be able to get longer stretches of sleep.
For bottle-feeding moms, the Doula will care for the baby during the night allowing the mom to sleep. The doula will care for the baby as the mother outlines. She can take notes during the night so the mom will know how the baby did during the night. The doula will nap between feedings.
Our overnight services are a minimum of 8 hrs/night.
There are no minimum nights required to contract. You can have one night or many. Some families schedule consecutive nights, others have a doula every other night and some just use us the first few nights home with the baby.
Our overnight services are very flexible.
