Home + Family

Toireasa provides postpartum doula care in Boston, it's suburbs and Central MA..

"We used Nightingale Night Nurses to help with two overnights for our 13 week old during my first week back to work after maternity leave. Our nurse, Toireasa, was amazing! I was concerned that our challenging sleeper wouldn't take to someone other than mom or dad at night, but Toireasa knew exactly how to soothe him, while also teaching him how to self-soothe. After two nights under her care, he's going to sleep on his own and I'm finally getting more than 2 hour stretches of sleep!"

"I cannot say enough good things about Toireasa. She immediately made us feel comfortable. Anyone who hires Toireasa will be lucky to have her and can rest assured their child is in good hands."



"Toireasa was a blessing to us as our newborn nurse. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and is a fabulous baby nurse. We highly recommend her."
