The whole purpose of overnight newborn care is for the entire family to GET MORE SLEEP! So, we won’t be doing a lot of noisy housework, of course. But, we will take care of simple tasks to make your life easier. Then, our focus will be entirely on looking after your baby, allowing you to get a full night of sleep. 

If you're breastfeeding the baby, your doula quietly wakes you a few hours later to nurse your hungry newborn. Once your little one has been fed, your doula will take your baby back to her nursery. She will change, swaddle, and soothe baby safely back to bed. All of this, while you sip your water and then drift back to sleep. 

Sometimes babies need a good bit of rocking or soothing after a feeding before they fall back to sleep. These middle of the night episodes aren’t always short and sweet. Overnight care allows you to go back to sleep sooner and easier, or even sleep straight through the night, knowing your baby is in good hands.

Your doula checks to make sure diapers and wipes are stocked and ready to go for the next day. She also grabs any used burp cloths and blankets to toss in the washer. After everything you needed is done. Your doula lays down in the nursey, guest room or on the couch to rest with the baby monitor nearby where she's able to hear your baby stirring. 

When it’s time for your doula to leave in the morning you'll be notified, by text, call or knock on your door. She will make sure everything is locked up and secured.
