Postpartum & Infant Care Doulas providing overnight support are often confused with night nannies or baby nurses. The idea of helping you maximize your rest is similar, but the difference with your doula from WCD is her focus is on your whole family's transition with your baby. Her priority is nonjudgmental support.
With expert guidance on newborn care, your overnight support starts at 8 hours.
With Wilmington Coastal Doulas, you can bring baby home confidently, knowing you have solid expert care by your side.
