As part of our Postpartum Support, overnight newborn care can help you and your baby adjust to life as a family. Consider hiring a night nurse/overnight doula. They provide compassionate, knowledgeable support for those sleepless nights.


Overnight doulas are more than someone to look after your baby while you get some much-needed sleep.

Do you Ferberize or are you an attachment parent? Your Doula will work with you to support your philosophy, not ours.

Making sleep cues work for you.

We can help you learn to interpret your baby’s sleep patterns and develop solutions designed to make the most of your baby’s rhythms.

Support your postpartum recovery.

Your doula is armed with research-based knowledge about your postpartum discomforts, including caesarean birth recovery. Learn more about our Postpartum Support.

Make tomorrow run more smoothly.

Folding laundry, prepping dinner, addressing birth announcements . . . anything that doesn’t make too much noise!

Calm middle-of-the-night nerves.

Your doula can provide emotional support, answer questions about newborn care, and all of those concerns that come up at 2am.

Sleep Support, Sleep Consultation & Sleep Coaching

Our experts can help your little one who struggles with sleep, needs a lot of help to settle, rises early or wakes during the night. Let us help your child establish healthy sleep patterns from the start.

Sleep Support For Newborn to 16 Weeks

Support includes:

  • A sleep summary outlining what to expect and how to support healthy development during the newborn phase
  • It may also include an in-home or phone consult to discuss the summary, in-home sleep environment assessment, and post-consult follow-up support.
Sleep Support for 16 weeks to 5 years
  • Support is based around a customized Sleep Plan with Interactive Daily Support during implementation.
  • May also include:
    • In-home or phone consultations
    • In-home Sleep Environment Assessment
    • In-home coaching support to clearly demonstrate and assist with coaching method(s) and other recommendations.
  • Once the Sleep Plan has been implemented and Daily Support is no longer necessary, Post-consult follow-up via phone or email is available for any questions that arise.

Ready for better sleep? Let’s get started! The first step is submitting a sleep questionnaire, where our Sleep Support specialist can get to know your needs better to create a customized approach for what fits best for your child and your family.
