Overnight Postpartum Doula Support:

An overnight doula  will help you get off to the best start from day one. She will help with day/night confusion that often occurs in the first weeks of life and in the following weeks she will also help establish good daytime feeding and napping habits to help promote longer stretches of more restful sleep overnight for everyone.  The doulas will also help support a new mother through those  sometimes challenging overnight feedings when a new mom is groggy and still learning to breastfeed. We are also more than happy to fold some laundry or perhaps whip up a meal for you for the next day leaving you with more time to rest, recover, and focus on your new baby.

 

*Gift certificates and Corporate packages are available for friends, family, or employers wishing to give the gift of a few good nights sleep to new parents.  This option makes a great baby shower or welcome home gift and leaves a long lasting impression on the recipient!*

Sleep Consultations:

 

A sleep consultation typically occurs when there are sleep issues with a baby and consists of a phone interview where I will gather information about your particular situation and help you trouble shoot obvious issues. I will ask you to keep a sleep journal for a week and will reconvene with you via phone call after I've had a chance to review your journal. From there I can help you establish even more techniques or tools to help your family achieve more quality sleep.  As we work together, I am available to answer your questions during normal business hours via phone calls, emails or text messages. In the event that I cannot help you over the phone I will meet with you in your home to provide more extensive hands on support.

Learning strategies for a lifetime of healthy sleep habits starts on day one. Through gentle guidance and techniques I will help your family get the best start towards restful nights and happier days. It is completely normal and actually essential for a young baby to have some night time wakings for the first year. Working with your family to establish a routine that promotes optimal sleep is important for laying the ground work for future sleep patterns and healthy development. Whether you are experiencing sleep issues or just want to get off to the right start, I will work with your family to personalize a plan that is right for you.
