Overnight and Daytime Newborn/Postpartum Care
We are proud to be Charlotte’s first and only agency to specialize in newborn and postpartum support for the entire family. We offer 24/7 live-in, travel, daytime, and overnight support. We are experienced with preemies, singletons, and multiples. We offer a variety of highly experienced and trained postpartum doulas and newborn care specialists (and offer three levels of experience and pricing!). We offer this service up to one year old.
Daytime, evening, and overnight care is offered 1-7 days or nights per week. Daytime care is typically used around the hours of 9am-1pm or 12pm-4pm | Evening care is typically used around the hours of 6pm-10pm or 8pm-12am | Overnight care is typically used around the hours of 9pm-5am, 10pm-6am, 11pm-7am, or 12 hour shifts of 7pm-7am or 8pm-8am. Our most popular shift is 9pm-6am. We are happy to work around your needs!

Unsure of how many days or nights you’ll be needing? We suggest purchasing a package of hours and then making the decision on number of shifts per week closer to when your baby arrives. Families also use our package options when they desire to “front load” their hours with a provider during the first few weeks, and then to taper down as their baby starts sleeping longer stretches.
