    Janessa saved us immensely during the first few months with our newborn twins. I looked forward to every night we had with her. Janessa was always on time and very prompt and attentive to the individual needs of both babies. I’ll never forget the first night she came – I introduced her to the routine and she told me to go to bed, which I very graciously agreed to. I told her I’d likely be up in an hour or two, when I heard the twins cry… however I slept almost five hours. I never heard a peep and I came downstairs to two very happy babies, drinking their bottles. She helped us with dishes and laundry as well. She was a blessing we will never forget!

When people say "it takes a village", they aren't wrong! My job is to be part of that village. I have been working with families for 15+ years, in infant classrooms and in-home. I meet my families where they are and grow alongside them! My goal is to help you meet your goals! Every mother and family has specific desires for postpartum life, being there to support, encourage or simply give you a chance to nap is where I come in. I established Doula Bell in 2022 after witnessing the lack of support during the postpartum period. I was my sister's "unofficial doula" during both of her pregnancies 7 & 11 years ago. I saw her struggle through breastfeeding, societal pressures, sleep deprivation and so much more. I started helping families in-home but really wanted to focus on this time after birth. They call me the baby whisperer! :) In my spare time I love walking and taking my 2 rescues, Thanos & Raymond to the dog park. I have 3 bonus daughters with my soon to be husband. We love going to the Raleigh Flea market, going swimming or having game night! I am a huge sports fan, playing college softball. You can find me cheering for the NE Patriots and the Boston Red Sox! I can't wait to meet your family and new addition!

Care philosophy

Working with families for so many years, I've learned that REALLY listening to my clients is extremely important. Everyone's journey is different. I really focus on the needs of the specific client and work to create a trusting relationship. I pride myself on being able to put myself in people's shoes, being able to approach each situation as a non-judgmental ally. I truly love what I do!

I’m a follower of Christ first and most importantly. I am a Military Spouse with 3 children. My husband and I have been married 15 years. Before I became a Birth and Postpartum Doula I worked in the field of Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I studied to become a Doula while stationed overseas in Okinawa, Japan. My calling and Ministry in this life is Mothers, Women and Children. Helping mothers whether in labor, during the birth, or after the baby has been born is my joy and passion. It brings me great joy to help families during each stage of pregnancy and there after. I take each opportunity that I’m given with families as a blessing to show love, compassion, and care in every area that it is needed. I have also valued how much love and thankfulness I receive from each family I’ve had the pleasure to serve. I can honestly say that I’m doing exactly what I was made to do and with that truth I face each opportunity with excitement, joy and eagerness.

Care philosophy

Hello My name is Keshun Mobley and I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula. It is my belief that Birth is designed to be a natural process. I do not buy into the belief that Birth is a Medical Procedure and I don’t believe mothers in birth should be treated as such unless there is cause for concern. It is my belief that after a Birth mother and baby should have the best care of love and assurance.

    Keshun has been critical to my postpartum care experience as a new, first-time mom during this crazy pandemic. Two months after my son was born, my husband went on a 4-month deployment. Not only was I living alone with no family around, but I was also in grad school and was struggling to find balance and take care of myself. Keshun came over about once a week to every other week and took care of me by making sure I was nourished with good food, a clean home, organized my son’s room, and helped with my never ending laundry piles. She is punctual, professional, and very experienced with children. Keshun is someone who you immediately feel that you can trust with your little one, and see by her work ethic that she is passionate about being a doula. She is very personable and down to earth, and I would highly recommend her to any new parent needing a helping hand.

Briana’s background is in public health which led her to birth work. She originally trained with Doulas of North America, and certified with Integrated Birth and Family Alliance as a birth doula and a postpartum doula. In her first two years of business, she also certified as a placenta encapsulation specialist with IPPA, a childbirth educator and breastfeeding peer counselor with Integrated Birth and Family Alliance, and an eco-baby educator with Bebo Mia. Briana is always continuing her education so she is able to provide non-judgmental, evidence-based support and resources to the families she serves. Briana’s most recent training includes postpartum belly binding, herbal salves for the whole family, Rebozo training, and vaginal steaming. Briana lives in Eastern Wake County with her family and Rottweiler. In her spare time (or as she likes to say - when she’s not at a birth!) Briana enjoys traveling, the beach, white wine, and a good CycleBar class!

Care philosophy

I meet families where they are, providing evidence-based care with a non-dogmatic approach. You want to breastfeed? Great! You want to formula-feed? Awesome, I can help with that, too! You have a planned cesarean? Fantastic, I have experience as a doula in the operating room. You want to have an unmedicated birth? Great, I've supported plenty of those! Need to pivot during birth? I can help you!

Night Nanny Services: FAQs

A night nanny is a trained professional that specializes in newborn care. They are known as “night nannies” because they arrive at night and offer their nannying services until the morning.

They are generally available for 8-12 hours during the night and provide nanny services during this time.

It should be noted that the price of a night nanny in Apex, NC will likely increase if the night nanny is contracted to deal with twins or multiple children. Also, a night nanny’s cost may depend on their level of education, the needs of the newborn, or their exact responsibilities for specific clients.

There are some situations in which your insurance company will help you cover the costs of childcare, and this can obviously help those parents that want their baby’s needs met but might not be as financially secure. Unfortunately, a night nanny usually isn’t covered by insurance.

However, there are some cases where a night nanny is covered by insurance. For example, if your child health issues, parents may want to check to see whether their night nanny costs can be covered by their insurance company since their role is more directly related to your child’s health.

There are many situations in which parents might consider a night nanny in Apex, NC. First, both parents might be working long hours, which means that neither of them have the time to actually bathe/feed/swaddle the child when necessary. Some parents might already rely on friends and family, but realize that they require more help when it comes to their children.

A night nanny is also often most necessary in situations where there are twins or triplets. These parents simply may need extra help to care for these children night after night, and night nannies can help take over some of the workload. For first-time parents, for example, having to care for multiple children for the first time can be overwhelming and stressful. Other parents might also be dealing with mental health issues or postpartum depression.

A night nanny is expected to care for the baby as the parent would if they were awake. Night nannies wash baby bottles, prepare feeds, sterilize pump equipment, and more. Overnight nannies also bathe, feed, diaper, and swaddle the baby, as well. A night nanny can also provide care in situations where the mother might be recovering from a C-section, for example.

In many cases, the process is simple: a parent often hands off their baby to their night nanny so that they can get some much-needed sleep. The night nanny remains at the household until the parent(s) wake up, and then night nannies leave once the parents can take over child care duties.

Every family’s needs are different, but night nannies are expected to burp the baby, bathe the baby, prepare formula, and provide other nanny duties. In summary, overnight nannies in Apex, NC are expected to keep the baby fed, comfortable, clean, rested, and dry.

However, night nannies are not expected to complete household chores that are unrelated to baby care. It’s also important to note that a night nanny in Apex, NC will obviously need to get their rest, as well – so bedding must be provided. A night nanny typically sleeps once the baby is already resting and their nanny chores are complete.

A night nanny can often help parents with emotional support or provide extra help for a sick child. An overnight nanny in Apex, NC can help reduce stress and anxiety for many new parents who might have issues with their work-life balance.

One of the most obvious differentiators in the world of night nannies in Apex, NC is the fact that a night nanny might have specific experience with children of a specific age. Some night nannies might have certifications such as nursing certifications or sleep certifications. Many night nannies are often involved for the first six weeks of childbirth, and some of them remain with parents for months.

For example, some night nannies might have specialized skills for children aged 1-2, while others may be more experienced with children aged 3-4. Obviously, the responsibilities of these night nannies in Apex, NC differ depending on the age of the children that they are supervising.

Some night nannies might be CPR-certified or first-aid certified, which can give more peace of mind to parents who might be concerned about potential sleep or breathing issues. Other overnight nannies might specialize in newborns that have colic or reflux issues, as well.

There are some overnight nannies in Apex, NC that might be open to caring for your child while you are traveling out of town, while other nannies might not be available for that amount of time. There is no certification required to become a night nanny in Apex, NC. However, some night nannies choose to become newborn care specialists, and undergo NCS training.

There are some families that try to compare the concept of a “night nanny” to an “overnight babysitter.” The main difference here involves the level of commitment that a night nanny has to a newborn, versus a babysitter that may only have to provide minimal care to a newborn or child.

A babysitter is often not responsible for actually creating/fixing meals for newborns, washing their baby bottles, or doing their laundry. While a babysitter might monitor a newborn or make sure that they are safe – a nanny might spend time soothing a newborn, swaddling them, or taking care of their meals and clothes. A nanny has more obligations than a babysitter, and are considered more of an “extension” of the parents.
