From the moment you are in my care, I welcome open communication, including weekly or bi-weekly health/mental/emotional support check-ins via email, text, call, or video. We will go over any medical information pertinent to your pregnancy and birth, and also talk about your physical health. I want my moms to be strong, healthy, and confident as they began transitioning into parenthood. There is an option of one 2 hour, or two 1 hour prenatal appointments. These appointments are for Q &A, birth planning/nursery walk-through, and birth rehearsal demonstrating optimum birthing positions for pain management. I ask to be notified when you believe true labor has begun. Please notify me when going to the hospital for birth. I am with my families from the moment they either call me to their side, until an hour after delivery. I stay after delivery to ensure both mother and baby are healthy. Our time together concludes with a postpartum follow-up 10 days after the birth, virtually or in-person. Even when our time has ended, I always welcome communication of any kind, be it a parental question, emotional guidance, or a picture update!

Care philosophy

My life is centered on my longing to help others. I believe being trusted with the care of a family, a mother, and baby is a gift. As a Birth Doula, I will support your inherent wisdom to give birth. I will support you in a way that allows and encourages you to achieve your goals and desires for your birth. My goal is to create a space of peace and confidence when it's time to meet your baby.

I decided to slightly adjust my career path from a Child Care Provider to a Doula by attending IAP Career college, achieving a certificate in Doula Business Ownership with 148 hours of study, CCBC where I'm currently pursuing my pathway in Early Childhood Development and Yoga Practitioner, and Madriella Doula Network where I've acquired my certifications in Birth/Postpartum Doula work. I am continuing to take courses such as Childbirth Education, Lactation Education, and Young Parent Specialist to further my knowledge to better assist parents in need of guidance, and I plan to become a Certified Licensed Midwife in the future. Realizing that valuable information around pregnancy, birth and parenthood is commonly left out, I vow to help ease anxieties by helping new expecting parents become knowledgeable and prepared for what's to come, increasing their ability to self-advocate, make informed decisions-giving them their sense of control back, and still having that control in finding a healthy balance between taking care of themselves as well as the baby. Moms need care too!

Care philosophy

My philosophy is making sure the postpartum experience is gentle, smooth, positive and supported no matter the parenting style the parent(s) has. Postpartum support should be non-judgemental, unbiased, and not pushing beliefs on a family. It's personalized support based on what each individual family needs/wants. I want to make sure there's a smooth transition, leaving parent(s) feeling empowered.

    Amari is our angel still is, I had Irish twins first 12-04-2021 and second 09-03-22. Amari was our doula both times and undoubtedly was the best part about my labor experience since I had a blood transfusion with both experiences and they’re both traumatic. If it wasn’t for amari I wouldn’t have survived. I am so grateful for Amari her services beyond labor when I needed the transfusion she stayed well over 6 extra hours making sure my partner and I were comfortable, ate and latched our babies both times. In any event of an unexpected outcome I would call and have Amari every time.

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.

The cost of a night nanny can vary based on a variety of factors, including their experience, their services, and their skills or specializations. Overall, the average cost of a night nanny in North Bethesda, MD is $25-40 per hour.

It should be noted that the price of a night nanny in North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD. 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD 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 North Bethesda, MD. 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.
