Similar to a “night nanny” or “baby nurse,” an overnight postpartum doula will care for your baby (or babies) while you sleep, as well as provide lactation support and perform light household duties.

Basic newborn care such as diaper changes, feedings, and soothing are taken care of while you rest. Whether you only need a few nights of sleep or would like an extended period of care, our postpartum doulas will be there. Sleep peacefully, knowing your family is in good hands.
