Let’s be real. The prospect of having a baby is both joyful and anxiety provoking. Some expecting parents have little to no experience holding a baby, caring for them, or changing a diaper. That’s OK! It’s normal. What’s not necessary is for new parents to have to struggle in the first weeks and months when welcoming their baby home. That’s where hiring a postpartum doula can be a valuable asset to new families.
When families contact us, sometimes they are asking for a night nurse, night nanny, or an overnight nurse. They hear terms from their friends or family and aren’t really certain what they mean exactly. They have a general understanding that they are looking for an overnight support person who helps with newborn care while the parents get some rest.
What’s the best time for a doula visit?
Congratulations on the long-awaited arrival of your beautiful new family member! We are so excited to share this special moment with you and your family and to help guide you through this amazing transition.
