In everything I do, whether supporting families through postpartum care or preparing a nourishing meal, my driving force is a genuine love and care.

My goal is to spread a joyful spirit wherever I go, leaving behind a trail of positivity and heartfelt connections. It's more than a profession for me; it's a commitment to bringing comfort, joy, and a sense of community to those I have the privilege to assist.

My journey in birth work started at age 12, when I had the unique experience of catching my little sister. At age 22, I started my work as a volunteer doula in Vermont, serving members in the community who lacked support. My early volunteer work gave me a deep understanding of how hospitals function, and how to work with medical staff towards the best possible outcomes for parent and child. I wanted to start working with families throughout pregnancy and in postpartum, so I received further training through DONA. Having been through two training programs has given me a diverse range of strategies to employ throughout my support. This work has been part of me forever, and I feel so grateful to have been invited to participate in many births since. I have experience supporting medicated and unmedicated births with first, second, and fourth-time parents, queer parents, low-income parents, autistic parents, non-native English-speaking parents, sexual assault survivors, people with depression, and parents of color at Kaiser (San Leandro and Redwood City), UCSF Mission Bay, CPMC, and John Muir Walnut Creek. I am a member of the queer community and this has influenced my belief that all bodies deserve respectful, compassionate, and culturally humble care.

Care philosophy

My role as a doula is to educate families and validate their preferences. I give birthing people and their partners the tools needed to make informed decisions and navigate their births with confident. My goal is to help you have a birth you take pride in, regardless of birthing location or ideals.

    I highly recommend Morgan as a Doula. I think she is going to be the next big thing and feel really lucky to have been able to work with her on short notice for my first baby. She is extremely warm, detail oriented, reliable, professional, enthusiastic and positive, and open and collaborative. I interviewed several doulas, including one who has been running a group practice for 10 years, and Morgan was by far the most responsive to what I had said I was looking for, and had the most collaborative approach with my loved ones and hospital staff. During the birth she was extremely available and helped to create a positive and cozy atmosphere and made the hospital room feel more like home. She helped us think through some difficult decisions on the day of as well. After the delivery, my nurse went out of her way to comment on how great Morgan had been with the hospital staff and said they would love to work with her again. Overall it was fantastic to work with her and I can recommend her without reservations.

    I can’t say enough about our incredible postpartum doula! She was an absolute lifesaver during those early days with our newborn. Her emotional support was a game-changer, always offering a comforting presence and a listening ear. Whether it was breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, she provided expert guidance and made us feel at ease. Her sleep training methods were effective, and our little one is now a fantastic sleeper. Her trustworthiness and passion for what she does shine through, and we felt truly blessed to have her by our side.

    In our experience, Sydney was undoubtedly the best midwife at the birthing center we used for the birth of our son. Her breadth of knowledge, her kind and confident demeanor, and her support of parents advocating for themselves and their babies were more than we could have hoped for. She was able to allay our fears as first-time parents and guide us with generosity and deep knowledge of her field. At every impasse, she was able to either inform us of our options herself or direct us to the resources we needed. She is a natural educator, and clearly cares deeply about the people she serves. Sydney has great capacity for both the hands-on parts of midwifery as well as a masterful command of the logistical and administrative side of the business. There were midwives at the birthing center with many years more experience than Sydney, but no one gained our confidence the way she did. In addition to all this, we must add that Sydney simply has the gift. There is no other way to say it. Whenever you go into an environment and find a shining example of excellence born through both natural talents and hard work – it is undeniable to all.

As a former nanny and experienced personal chef, the need to care is innate, and it was natural that when it time to move on, I became a doula. I combine the best of Western knowledge, Chinese philosophy and Indigenous Caribbean and Afro-Indigenous Caribbean guidance to provide a unique blend of care that works at multiple levels.

Care philosophy

I firmly believe in gentle guidance that allows new and intended parents to rest and recover, filtering the noise and offering a singular well of information and care to limit being overwhelmed.

    Glen was my postpartum doula who stayed with me some days and some night. She kept me hydrated, made very tasty food and encouraged skin to skin time with baby. She’d use this time to do laundry or wash dishes and I really was able to focus on bonding with my baby and not about other things. She showed me how to keep my baby sleeping safe and helped me address my postpartum anxiety in so many ways.

I work to provide compassionate, non-judgemental, aware and evidence-based support and resources for all my clients and appreciate the different shapes and sizes birth preferences, birth journeys and families can come in. I began my birth work in the Bay Area of California and received my birth and postpartum doula certification through Doula Training International. I practiced doula work in the Bay Area and New York. I am CPR/AED certified, have a background in Neurobiology, Education, Global Poverty, newborn nannying and nursing support and have built a robust birthing community (lactation consultants, midwives, OBGYNs, photographers, therapist, LGBTQ+ friendly centers, childcare providers, prenatal yoga, etc) in the East Bay down through Palo Alto and in San Francisco where I serve. I see community as a strength all birthing people should be able to benefit from and continue to offer low-cost/sliding scale support to achieve this goal.

Care philosophy

I believe you already possess the necessary tools to bring life into this world and view my role as your doula—a culturally competent emotional, physical and educational support, active listener and protector of your rights and wishes—as a hands-on comfort and confidence booster your family can use to reach your birthing and parenting goals.

Through physical comfort measures, so that the experience of childbirth can be more fully enjoyed.

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.

Night nannies are also known as newborn care specialists, which is often abbreviated as “NCS.” A night nanny usually works with new parents for 8-12 weeks after the baby is born. Night nannies are often also called “night nurses.”

It can be incredibly exhausting to sleep train new babies, and a night nanny is expected to sleep train babies. Night nannies can also educate and inform new parents on the best way to feed, bathe, sleep train, and swaddle their children. They are generally available for 8-12 hours during the night and provide nanny services during this time.

Many professional parents often hire overnight nannies in San Jose, CA because they may work long hours. It might be extremely difficult for these parents to get enough sleep to remain productive, and a night nanny can help them begin sleeping properly. Meela can help you connect with a night nanny in San Jose, CA today.

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 San Jose, CA is $25-40 per hour.

It should be noted that the price of a night nanny in San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA. 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA 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 San Jose, CA. 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.
