OVERNIGHT SUPPORT includes:
If you decide that overnight support is what your family needs, the shifts will be at least 10 hours long. In that time, your doula’s goal is to help you get sleep. When I arrive, we can talk about the day and fill me in on the details of baby’s last feeding and diapering, and then you can head off to bed. During the night, as baby is hungry, I'll bring baby to you if you’re breastfeeding, or feed a bottle if you’re bottle feeding. Once baby is done eating, I’ll make sure they have burped, had a diaper change, and soothe them back to sleep. When it’s morning time, I will bring the baby to you with notes from the night. Overnight, if there are quiet tasks for me to complete, like unloading the dishwasher, washing bottles, or folding laundry, then I can do that, too. You’ll wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy another day.
Cost $300 a night ($30/hr) shift starts at 830pm-630am
