$35 per hour with NO registration fee for our owner.
Included in our team is the owner of Queen City Newborn Care, Meg. Meg’s hourly rate of $35 per hour is reflective of her 14+ years of newborn and postpartum experience, hours of specialized trainings (working with multiples, premature infants, green nursery consultations/set up and other situations that require atypical/unconventional care.) and accompanying certifications.
Available 1-7 nights or days a week for 8-12 hour shifts between the hours of 7pm-7am, and 4-12 hour shifts between the hours of 7am-7pm. We offer support with bathing, feeding, dressing, diapering, cleaning and preparing bottles, teaching self soothing techniques, sleep training, swaddling techniques, maintaining nightly logs, baby laundry, stocking and maintain the nursery supplies, providing daily and weekly goals. Some of us also provide care for older siblings as well.

Currently our owner is the only one on the team offering 24/7 live in, and comes with over 14 years of experience with singletons and multiples. She offers live in care for babies up to 1 year old and has a 48 hour minimum. She offers the same support as our daytime and overnight doulas and is available for local or travel care. She is travel ready for domestic and international support, and does require families to pay for all airfare and lodging fees. Perfect for parents travelling for work or vacation, or for parents who don’t have a village of their own to help in the first few weeks or months home from the hospital. Please book in advance!

We offer temporary babysitters for families with young children. These babysitters have higher education in early childhood or newborn care as well as several years of experience with infants. This service has a
$30 fee per day and $50 fee for families needing to book someone the same day. We ask that you agree to pay your babysitter $20+ per hour (extra for multiples) and accept that our babysitters have a four hour minimum. Higher rates will apply for holidays.
This service is FREE for our postpartum clients.
$1300 for birth photography | $650 due at signing of the contract and remaining $650 due by 37 weeks.
$500 for Fresh 48 photography | $250 due at signing of the contract and remaining $250 due by 37 weeks. These fees are non refundable, as our birth photographer has blocked her calendar off for two weeks before and two weeks after your due date. At the signing of this contract, it is assumed that none of us can anticipate the type of labor and birth you are going to have. Our photographer can only contract with a small number of clients in any particular time frame (for fear of missing someone’s birth and not meeting their needs). She cannot fill her calendar and then change fees according to how births turn out. She is as committed to short laboring clients as she is to long laboring clients.
