The arrival of a newborn is a truly magical and awe-inspiring moment in the life of any parent. Those tiny, delicate fingers and toes, the sweet little noises they make, and that irresistible baby smell - it's enough to make you want to gaze at your baby for hours on end. But as any new parent quickly learns, those precious little bundles of joy don't adhere to a day/night schedule, and they have tiny stomachs that require frequent feeding. This means they wake up hungry and need your attention all day and night.
This is where The Mommy Circle comes in. We understand the challenges of those early days of parenthood, and our most treasured service is overnight newborn care. We know that sleep is precious for new and existing parents, and the joy of hiring a professional to care for your baby during the nighttime hours cannot be overstated. It is a game-changer, especially for first-time parents who may be feeling overwhelmed by the demands of caring for a newborn. Our mission is to provide support and assistance while empowering parents, not replacing them.
Our team is comprised of experienced and trained professionals, including night nannies, newborn care specialists, postpartum doulas, and baby nurses. All our team members have received training from a certified entity and are proud members of a professional organization. Our services are available 24 hours a day, providing round-the-clock support for your family. Whether you need overnight care or daytime assistance, we have you covered.
For our overnight shifts, our specialists will care for your baby during the night. This includes changing diapers, feeding, burping, and soothing your baby back to sleep. If you're nursing, we can bring the baby to you for a feed and then handle the rest of the care. Our expertise goes beyond just the basics; we also focus on implementing healthy sleep habits for your baby. Establishing a consistent and developmentally appropriate routine is invaluable for both babies and parents, regardless of your baby's sleep tendencies.
The cost of our services varies depending on the level of specialized credentials and experience, but it typically falls in the range of $35 to $50 per hour. You have the flexibility to book our specialists for seven nights a week or just one night as needed. However, we do require that each shift be a minimum of 8 hours to ensure a consistent and comprehensive level of care. Our typical shift begins at around 9-10 pm and lasts for 8-12 hours. During this time, you can discuss your baby's day and routines with our care specialist to ensure everyone is on the same page. It's also a perfect opportunity to tap into the knowledge and experience of our specialists, as newborns can often seem like little mysteries. Your overnight newborn care specialist / postpartum Doula is there to answer any questions and provide guidance, making your parenting journey smoother and less daunting.
Once your specialist arrives, you are free for the night. Take some time for self-care, whether it's a relaxing shower, catching up on work, watching a show, or simply getting some much-needed rest. Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind, knowing that your baby is in capable hands while you recharge.
Pregnancy is an ideal time to begin your search for the perfect newborn care specialist. However, it's never too late to reach out for support. Whether your baby isn't sleeping through the night, or you just need some assistance during the day, The Mommy Circle's overnight newborn care team is here to help. Our mission is to be your support system, day or night, so you can navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood with confidence.
