Nighttime Doula Support
Learn more about our night doula support services.
With a primary focus on late night support including sleep consulting and encouraging healthy sleep habits, our night doulas provide invaluable nighttime support during those early days postpartum.
A night doula offers invaluable assistance with the tasks and needs of your baby throughout the night, providing enormous relief and an opportunity to rest for both mom and the baby. This can be particularly valuable during those early days postpartum when it feels like you can’t get a single good night of rest.
Our night doulas can help you with many late-night tasks such as encouraging healthy and predictable sleep habits and providing the entire family with physical, emotional, and educational support as needed. We also make it a priority to offer non-judgmental care with an aim to create a supportive environment for you as parents where you can express your concerns, ask honest questions, and receive tailored support based on your specific parenting style.
Moreover, night doulas can assist with:
By having someone with professional expertise by your side supporting you every step of the way, you can enjoy more peace of mind and feel relaxed as you navigate the exciting and challenging journey of parenthood. Oh, and of course you’ll finally get a (well-deserved) good night of rest!
The most obvious difference is at which time of the day you receive support. Night doulas focus on helping the baby during the night so the parents can sleep, while a day doula helps the entire family with tasks during the day. Live-in doulas (also called “24 hour doulas”) on the other hand are there both during the day and night and take on the tasks of both the day doula and night doula.
Generally speaking, a night doula is right for you if:

A sneak peek into the typical experience with a nighttime doula
Typically our night doulas arrive at your home at 10 pm and provide assistance until 6 am, though we prioritize your family’s unique needs and work closely with you to develop a customized strategy that ensures your comfort and well-being (so these hours may differ for you).
Our night doulas oversee every aspect of your baby’s care, closely monitoring their needs and ensuring their safety throughout the night. To keep you informed, we maintain a detailed log of the night’s activities either by using baby apps or written notes, providing you with valuable insights into your baby’s routine.
We care about mom’s well-being too! Our night doulas make sure that you stay hydrated and offer light snacks to keep you nourished during the night. If you choose to breastfeed, our doulas will bring your baby to you, promoting bonding and supporting your breastfeeding journey.
By entrusting your nights to our night doulas, you can finally enjoy uninterrupted sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the demands of the day.
