OVERNIGHT POSTPARTUM CARE
Together we will sit down and put together an overnight support plan designed specifically to your meet your families’ needs. Sleep is so important as a new parent, especially if you are preparing to head back to work. Overnight care with Sacred Journey Doulas may be anytime from the first night home, to several nights per week for a duration of several months.

 

Your doula will arrive at 9:00 or 10:00 PM. She will do a thorough check-in and send you off to get some sleep. If you are breastfeeding you will create a plan together about waking for feeding, or if introducing bottles overnight she will prepare all bottles. If you’re pumping during the night, she cleans the pumping equipment and readies it for you.

You can finally settle in knowing that you are going to get some well deserved rest.
