What's included:

2-3

Overnight Care

Your professional newborn care specialist or postpartum doula “Nightingale” arrives between 9-10pm and stays throughout the night, working an 8-12 hour shift. When we arrive we go over how the day went and answer any questions you have. We typically stay in the same room as the baby throughout the night. Before we leave in the morning we make sure that bottles and pump parts are washed and that the nursery is restocked with diapers and wipes.

3-2

Support

Our main goal is to support you as new parents when you transition home with your newborn. We offer guidance with soothing, swaddling, bathing, diaper changes, feeding, burping, sleep hygiene, dressing and engaging in age-appropriate activities, and cleaning bottle/pump parts from the night. We teach you how to care for your baby from day one by giving supportive and non-judgemental feedback and tips. Your Nightingale is your “person” and your personal expert on all things baby.

4-3

Routine

Your specialist will maintain logs during our shifts, keeping track of feeding and sleeping patterns, along with other pertinent information and observations to help establish a healthy routine. Most newborn care specialists are adept at getting babies into a routine from week one! Our goal is to leave you with a baby that takes excellent naps, is well nourished and sleeps through the night.

5-2

Feeding

Whether you are breastfeeding, formula feeding or pumping, our Nightingales are ready to work out a plan for your overnight. If you are breastfeeding your nightingale can bring your baby to you when it’s time to feed and either give you space or support while your baby is nursing. If your baby is bottle feeding then your Nightingale can take over complete care of your baby during their entire shift.
