In many cultures, a “babymoon” - a period of time in which the mother is restricted to her home, doing nothing but caring for her baby, is observed.
Our Babymoon package includes breast feeding and baby care support, light housekeeping, light errands, care of siblings, and overnight respite care, where a Doula rooms in with baby, and brings her to you only to be fed, if you are breast feeding, then returns her to her room for routine care, and to be put back to sleep, while you get much needed rest. We recommend this package for the first month postpartum, or for the weeks following your partner’s return to work.
Our Babymoon package is 160 hours of service for the price of 120, over the course of no more than four calendar weeks, and includes 80 hours of overnight respite care. We recommend 3 daytime shifts and 3 nighttime shifts per week. Shifts are 8-10 hours in length, and daytime hours are from 9 am-8 pm, while nighttime hours are from 8 pm till 6 am. We do not schedule between 6 and 9 am. We have to sleep sometime!
Payment for the Babymoon is handled 20% down, and 20% on Friday of each of the four weeks of service.
