Our culture plans weddings, showers and birthdays down to the shade of napkin rings, but when it comes to planning for a baby…a book, birthing class and a baby shower does not always make a parent who is ready.
First time parenthood, or a new addition to the family, involves planning and preparation for the baby’s arrival as well as preparing for your own emotional, physical, financial and challenges ahead. Maternal Instincts is here to support you and your family now.
Maternal Instincts provides labor doulas, post partum doulas, night nannies, day nannies, milk/ lactation consulting, sleep consulting for newborns and babies and nutrition consulting for mother and baby.
Whether your baby is one you’ve tried for in earnest or was a complete surprise, transitioning into parenthood is a beautifully bumpy ride. The process of bringing a baby into your world, whether through pregnancy, surrogacy or adoption, is a monumental life change and let’s face it, most of us are incredibly under-prepared.
For the past 11 years Maternal Instincts has been simplifying the process of finding the most loving, nurturing and trustworthy nannies. We thoughtfully match families with premiere nannies, experienced baby nurses, sleep training consultants, lactation consulting, dietetic counseling, trusted doulas and dedicated babysitters. We conduct thorough screens for each candidate to save your valuable time and create satisfying relationships between you and your Maternal Instincts nanny or labor/ postpartum doula
I knew I could get through my crazy day with my toddler and newborn knowing that Sarah was going to arrive and cook me dinner, hold my baby and do the laundry. They saved my life, being a new mom was so overwhelming and the lack of sleep daunting. All I needed was some sleep...Thank You!
Krissy came in and her calm and sweet demeanor allowed us to trust that our babies were in amazing hands and our night was peaceful and our sleep was great.The tools they gave us to care for our twins were invaluable.
Rachelle was a crucial part of our postnatal experience after such an exciting and stressful birth. Her vast knowledge and experience helped us survive. – Daddy K.
