What Is A Doula?

Motherhood Center’s Doulas are experienced professionals who provide newborn support.

Often referred to as a baby doula, postpartum doula, or night nanny, Motherhood Center’s newborn care specialists are highly-skilled professionals who provide physical, emotional, and educational support to families with newborns during the weeks and months following birth.

When you bring your baby home, our specialists ease the transition into parenthood by mentoring families with hands-on instruction and expert guidance.

Hand Selected

Motherhood Center’s doulas go through a rigorous screening and selection process. They are hand-selected by our founder and president, Gabriela Gerhart, who personally reviews their knowledge and techniques at Motherhood Center.

They Educate

A night nanny, baby doula or newborn care specialist will help new parents recognize the needs and natural rhythms of their baby. Parents will learn to understand their baby, trust their own instincts, and ultimately gain confidence in their parenting. Our specialists are skilled in newborn care, soothing techniques, and breastfeeding and/or bottle-feeding.
