Yes, you really can have a postpartum doula overnight.
One of the biggest fears parents have when they find out they’re expecting a baby can be summed up in five words: Will. I. Ever. Sleep. Again? And for good reason!
Statistics show that parents who do not receive adequate sleep are more inclined to experience baby blues or Postpartum Depression. Overnight care provided by your postpartum doula is a valuable survival tool for that bleary-eyed first year of your baby’s life and a worthwhile investment in your overall well-being.
We understand that allowing a postpartum doula into your home to care for your precious baby while you sleep requires vulnerability and trust. When you have a Family Tree Doula Services doula stay in your home, you can expect kind-hearted professionalism and the utmost transparency. Expect to feel safe, warm, and in exceptionally capable hands.
Your overnight postpartum doula package offers skilled infant care so you can rest & recover.
YOU CHOOSE THE NIGHTS THAT ARE BEST FOR YOUR NEW FAMILY.
Our overnight postpartum care begins with a thorough assessment of the areas in which you need the most support. For most parents, typically, their top priority is getting as much sleep as humanly possible with a newborn…or any sleep at all.
Perhaps you’re also interested in learning how to make feeding your baby at night as smooth as possible, how to change diapers without waking them up, or how to decrease nighttime stimulation so your baby goes back to sleep quickly! Your doula is ready to give you helpful tools and information that will answer all your questions.
Your baby’s duration of sleep, sleep positioning, and sleep hygiene affect all areas of infant health. Our doulas do not provide sleep conditioning or sleep training, rather they guide you and your baby from day one by following your baby’s cues and meeting their needs in a quiet, mindful, sleep-supporting way. We provide helpful tips and tricks to get your baby sleeping through the night like a pro when the time is right.
*Our typical schedule for overnights is 8pm-6am or 9pm-7am. The schedule can be customized upon request.

What our lovely clients are saying:
"Our doula was the perfect person for us. As first time parents to very premature twins, we were naturally on edge after a long NICU stay. Our doula provided wonderful support to not only our babies but to us as well. She did exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it to minimize the added stress and anxiety of preemies."
