Helen Vitaris

I have the knowledge and training needed to educate new parents on how to care for their newborn by teaching them how to feed, bath and put babies down for naptime. I can help parents organize the nursery to make things more convenient and easier to handle. I am highly trained to take care of singletons, twins or even triplets, so parents with multiple newborns are not so overwhelmed and stressed. When I am available to care for newborns 24 hours a day, the new parents have time to adjust to having an infant in the home. It makes it possible for them to get the sleep they need so they can adjust slowly. Even parents who already have children at home can use the extra help, so they have time to take care of their other children.

Care philosophy

I have worked as a baby nurse for over 23 years and I enjoy helping new parents make the transition into parenthood, by teaching them how to care for the new addition to their family.

    Helen has helped me with newborn care and postpartum support for both of my children. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have worked with Helen six years ago with my daughter and most recently with my son this past summer. Helen has worked with us in our home for many weeks. Helen is professional, organized, kind, gentle, thoughtful, and creative. She has a wealth of experience with newborns and taught me so much about how to be a parent with my first born. She got us on the right track with routines for feeding and sleep. Helen has great ideas and is a problem solver. She is fun to strategize with and a pleasure to have in the home. Helen was a great fit for our family and we recommend her to anyone expecting a baby or with a newborn. Helen is the best!

With an intimate understanding of the tradition, I aspire to bring that same light into each home I have the honor of entering – a sense of calm and peace in the moments as I care for you and your growing family. Clients choose me to step into the role of postpartum doula and newborn specialist due to her blend of education, lived experience, an evidence-based yet relaxed approach. Apart from helping parents and babies feel at ease, I'm also riding the wave with you as a mother to three children and licensed foster parent. I strive to be the peaceful presence that nourishes your family during this tender time. I am inclusive of all family dynamics and seasoned in high-risk pregnancies, fertility struggles, loss, medically fragile children, and adoption

Care philosophy

While I emphasize mothering the mother, I believe the whole family is worthy of equal love and attention. By ensuring everyone is well cared for, there’s more room to recover, rest, learn, process, bond, and find harmony – even in the thick of it. I focus on individualized, simplified, ongoing solutions that feel natural to you and your family. That way, you can feel better equipped.

    My wife and I are first time parents to our baby with GERD and colic. Her colic peak weeks were very difficult and we were at our wits end. We were losing our minds! Our baby changed the moment Terese watched her. She showed us lots of tricks for babies with reflux. Baby has been sleeping through the night since the first time she’s been here. She has come a few more times and we are definitely planning to have her again especially when she starts to roll. Terese is very calm and gentle. She is definitely the baby whisperer!!!

I am from a long line of montessori certified child development specialist. for as long as I can remember I've been a natural caregiver, building that into a passionate career was an easy choice. (plus...cuddling babies!) through my training and experience I've become an expert in child development and learned the importance of providing newborns with the building blocks to form strong loving attachments, healthy sleep habits, and a routine that helps both baby and family thrive. I am a montessori trained NCS and in my 5 years of services as an overnight doula my clients never fail to express too me how much my love, consideration, and comforting guidance has impacted their families lives. I believe love and secure attachment in all aspects of babies life is key to healthy development. It is my honor to join in the care of your new family!

Care philosophy

I believe that families naturally thrive with thoughtful, genuine support so babies are secure and parents are well rested. I believe that babies grow, learn, and thrive by feeling safe, loved, and nurtured. It is so important to provide healthy attachments in the first months of life.

I have always been interested in birth, and how life is brought into this world. With a long background in Nannying and child care, I have experience in all aspects of caring for newborns and assisting families with the utmost love and respect. I was trained with Dona international in childbirth and breastfeeding education, learning all aspects of doula care and evidence based information. Whether it is in the hospital, birth center, or at home, I can help create a nurturing and calm environment to uplift and empower the birth person. In prenatal appointments and throughout the birth I can provide gentle massage, belly sifting, position changing, tens unit support, aroma therapy, guided meditation, reiki healing, cold and hot compresses, and physical/mental support to aid in pain management and provide an uplifting environment. These tools coupled with evidence based information and full emotional support, will be used to ease tension and empower the birth experience.

Care philosophy

Every birth is a beautiful blessing, and perhaps the most profound moment in many people's lives. I believe that doula support and guidance can educate, uplift and improve the birth experience and I feel so fortunate to help facilitate any birth persons journey. Emotional support, along with childbirth education, and creating a calm and meditative atmosphere are all elements used in my practice.

    I really appreciated Natalie! She was very attentive, and always knew when to call. She asked me what my needs were and she cater to those her soothing voice was just what I needed when I was going through my contractions. And she was surprisingly strong enough to help me up. I would recommend Natalie to any expecting mother even my midwives who met her, loved her and said she was very nice. She showed a lot of love and care towards my newborn and I really appreciate it that. So if you’re thinking about having Natalie as a Doula, that would be a great choice, I recommend it!

    Tamica, I can’t express the gratitude that my family has for you. You have forever changed all of our lives for the better. Your compassion, patience and attention to detail (emotional, metal & physical) is something I will always try to achieve for myself.

    After three weeks of bed rest, I thought I was prepared for Lucca to make her way earth-side. But through her birth and all of the unexpected steps my labor required (the magnesium) to get her here safely, I can’t imagine how Trace and I would have coped through all of that if it weren’t for you. You’d think with baby number four we would be seasoned pros. But that simply wasn’t the case.

    You have such a remarkable soul. Thank you for making such a special impact on our family. We Will remember you forever.

Caring for families during the most exciting but also most vulnerable and scary time in their lives brings me great joy. I particularly take interest in helping LGBTQIA+ families, neurodivergent parents, and parents dealing with a postpartum mood disorder. My job is to leave a family feeling better than when I arrived by providing emotional and physical support, education, information, and resources. www.Queenofcupsdoulas.com

    Nikki was our birth and postpartum doula and she was such a pleasure to work with! We would absolutely recommend her to anyone, both for pregnancy and postpartum support. She is organized, calm, responsive, and such a wonderful resource when it comes to sorting out all of the information available about pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and newborn care. She made me feel so comfortable during labor and and I knew she had my back, regardless of how closely I stuck to my birth plan. She was also a massive help during our postpartum visits, and took the time to answer all of our first time parent questions (no matter how small). She even taught us how to properly tie our Solly baby wrap, setting us up for baby wearing success. Hire her!

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 Santa Ana, 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 Santa Ana, CA today.

To find a night nanny in Santa Ana, CA, most parents recommend creating a job post on Meela and having uniquely qualified night nannies near you (in your budget) reach out to you through the Meela app.

You can interview and chat with as many night nannies as you wish and hire a night nanny in Santa Ana, CA with confidence. It is completely free to create a job post on Meela and find a night nanny. There are no commitments to hire any of the qualified and expert vetted night nannies Meela brings you.

Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

  1. Post a job for free: Answer some questions and receive responses from top-rated night nannies near you. It takes less than 30 seconds to post your job.
  2. Get your list of night nannies: In a few hours, you will have a collection of night nannies near you who are qualified to meet your needs. You can compare pricing, experience, and read reviews. You can chat with each night nanny to learn more about them.
  3. Hire a night nanny with confidence: Schedule virtual or in-person interviews with your top night nanny choices. Hire your top night nanny and start getting your family the care it deserves.

To find a night nanny, you can also browse the available night nannies near you in Santa Ana, CA and read reviews, compare pricing, experience and fit. Send the night nannies you are interested in a message, introducing yourself and setting up an interview. We recommend reaching out to and interviewing at least three overnight nannies before hiring a night nanny near you. After interviewing, hire the most qualified overnight nanny near you and start getting the care you deserve.

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 Santa Ana, CA is $25-40 per hour.

It should be noted that the price of a night nanny in Santa Ana, 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 Santa Ana, 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.

A babysitter is often not responsible for actually creating/fixing meals for newborns, washing their baby bottles, or doing their laundry.
