Postpartum care begins after the birth of your baby. Hiring a Nighttime doula is one of the ways a mother can get some rest at night and be able to continue with her other commitments the next day. Sleeplessness is an inevitable part of caring for a baby and a nighttime doula’s main job is to spend the night to give the mother a chance to rest. She handles the baby’s nighttime feedings regardless of bottle fed or breastfeeding, soothes the baby to sleep and tends to its needs. Getting some extra sleep can go a long way in the mother’s ability to maintain a healthy and happy life.
