I had a great experience with Birthways! My doula was kind, experienced, well informed and very easy to be around as I/we adjusted to being a family.
Compassionate, knowledgeable support for sleepless nights
Baby with mixed-up days and nights? Multiple infants? An older sibling to look after the next day? All of the above? Overnight care can help you and your baby adjust to life as a family.
Overnight doulas are more than someone to look after your baby while you get some much needed sleep. Overnight doulas are specially trained to:
Help with your bottle-fed *or* breastfed baby
We can help you tailor a plan that supports both your breastfeeding goals and your need for restorative sleep.
Sort out the sleep theories
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.
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 2 am.
[Our doula], especially in those first few nights, was an amazing support. Her encouragement, knowledge of breastfeeding and baby care, and peaceful nurturing presence was so valuable. Having her there so I could get some sleep was priceless. I am a better mom because of her!!
