Can you have 24 hour postpartum care?
Absolutely, 24 hours care is critical the first few days out of the hospital to allow the mother to rest and be able to breastfeed the baby in a relaxed atmosphere. This service is especially good for mothers who have had a c-section.
Do you help with sleeptraining?
Yes, sleep training is basically having a routine. We can schedule to come no later than 16 weeks for sleep training. However, it is much easier to choose the postpartum doula option and we can start sleep training while working nights. It has been our experience that babies get used to the routine much faster when working overnight.
