Night Nurses V. Postpartum Doulas

What’s a night nurse?

A night nurse is basically a fancy babysitter so mom and dad can sleep. Its a nurse, a qualified medical professional that can care for a newborn and continue nighttime efforts to get baby on a schedule.

What’s a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum doula is a mother’s helper so mom can care for baby. A doula works during the day and helps to cook, clean, do laundry, other household chores, maybe even care for older siblings so mom can focus. She might also allow mom to nap during the day but relieving the pressure of chores to be done. She’s also skilled in newborn can and can support lactation, transition and baby care in general.

What the heck is the difference between a night nurse and a doula?

A night nurse is a registered nurse to care for the baby during the night, allowing parents to sleep. A postpartum doula helps mom to care for baby during the day and does light house work and cleaning, freeing mom to focus on baby.
