We believe that sleep is such an important part of being the best parent you can be to your baby. Having a good night’s sleep helps you both physically and emotionally. Much like a baby nurse or night nanny, your doula will take care of your baby so that you can get your best sleep. She will be there to take care of everything overnight so you can get the sleep you deserve. She can also help with parents who want to get on a schedule (starting from 4-6 months after birth).
- Overnight support starts with 8-hour shifts, 3-4 nights a week
*Package prices start at $960. Additional hours and shifts are available as needed.*
