Did you know that during a baby’s first few months of life, parents get about 7.2 hours of sleep a night? Even though this falls within the range of the recommended 7 to 9 hours, this sleep is fragmented. That means that you can wake up every hour, or more, to care for your baby! It’s no wonder that new parents often struggle at night.
Having a postpartum doula support your family overnight can help maximize your sleep which will give you more energy for the following day!
An overnight postpartum visit looks something like this:
- Overview of the day’s events and answering any questions you may have
- Bathing your baby
- Preparing bottles (breastmilk or formula) or
- Bringing baby to you for nursing session
- Soothing baby at night
- Burping your baby
- Folding laundry
- Feeding support
- Early morning routine
Along with physical support, I provide you with non-judgmental, research-based information about baby development and healthy family sleep.
