what is a
newborn care specialist?

Motherhood Center’s baby specialists are experienced professionals who provide newborn support. Often referred to as a baby doula, postpartum doula, or night nanny, Motherhood Center’s caregivers are highly-skilled professionals who provide physical, emotional, and educational support to families with newborns during the weeks and months following birth. From the moment you bring your baby home, our specialists are there to ease the transition into parenthood by mentoring families with hands-on instruction and expert guidance.

what our
clients are saying

Brenda was amazing!! She not only took care of us, she kept track of all the baby’s symptoms and empowered us to get the best possible care for our little angel. She saved us!! We are forever in debt to her for helping us thrive in baby’s first week. I would recommend a night nanny to everyone I know, especially those struggling with reflux!
Sarah S.
She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of newborn and small child development and resolutely committed to the safety and well-being of the baby. She provides unconditional, non-judgmental support to mothers and will implement your care preferences to the letter. I recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation.
