Postpartum Doulas and Newborn Care Specialists

They have between 35-40 hours of continuing education and have gone through our 12 week internship program to shadow an experienced NCS. Level I PPD/NCS are great for parents wanting an extra set of hands from someone with more knowledge than a newborn nanny!

Live-in and Travel Care

For singletons, twins, and triplets+

$650+ per day for live-in care for 24 hours per day for a minimum of 72 hours. This includes 4 hours off each day to shower and rest.

Our owner (Level III) offers short term live-in care at a lower rate. Please inquire for more information.

The cost of travel care is your doula’s hourly rate OR $650+ per day when the doula is needed for 24 hour care as well as all airfare, lodging, meals, and transportation fees paid. An overnight flat rate is required if her services are not needed in the evenings. A minimum of 8 hours per day of paid work is required and those hours can be split at the discretion of the family and the postpartum doula (for example – 4 hours every morning and 4 hours every evening, 8 hour overnight shifts, 8 hour daytime shifts, etc).

Live-in and travel care is available with several of our postpartum doulas and newborn care specialists but you need to book fast! This is perfect for parents traveling 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 when their baby (or babies) is born.
