Father and newborn baby

Newborn & Postpartum Care

How do you describe a day in the life of a new parent?

Feeding, burping, changing, soothing. So much soothing. What does that cry mean? Why is my baby making that face? Are you hungry? Are you tired? Are you uncomfortable? Is this normal? Please just sleep, I know you must be tired.

Just when you think you’ve got it, a developmental leap changes everything. You’re trying to juggle caring for your baby with caring for yourself, maintaining your connection with your partner, and keeping up with the day-to-day household obligations.

We know that when you as parents are cared for and at your best, your family thrives.

Trained as both Newborn Care Specialists and Postpartum Doulas, our team has a breadth of knowledge and experience providing hands-on baby care and education to families across Middle Tennessee. As both Newborn Care Specialists and Postpartum Doulas, we specialize in working with multiples, such as twins, triplets, quadruplets, and even quintuplets, as well as NICU graduates, special needs babies, breastfeeding, formula feeding, pumping, SNS feeding, sleep conditioning, tongue ties, colic and reflux, in addition to taking a holistic approach to caring for the postpartum family and recognizing signs of perinatal moods disorders. Whether your needs are for daytime help, overnight support, or around the clock care, our team is ready and available for as little as one shift or for consistent care spanning months or a year.

Under our care, families are confident, more well-rested, and experience shorter learning curves with their babies. Benefit from the individualized care of our team, tailored to you and your parenting philosophy.

What our clients are saying:

“I’m more comfortable and confident as a mother thanks to Arielle.” – Lindsay, Hermitage

“Great advice and coaching on cloth diapering, breastfeeding and bottle feeding. I truly believe our baby was able to sleep in their crib since two weeks due to overnight doula care.” – Jen, Nashville

“Having Kaelah watch our baby everynight was instrumental in allowing me to tackle by postpartum depression. It gave us some time to connect as spouses and even more important than the refreshing night’s sleep was having a much needed break from the stress and worry about the baby’s well being. She was knowledgeable, personable, reliable and friendly. She was easy to trust with our daughter, and offered great suggestions when asked. It provided us with a sense of hope– we knew that if we ever got to a breaking point that we had somewhere to turn.” – Mallory, Nashville

“Both Arielle and Kaelee were excellent, nurturing, on-time and professional.  They took the time to explore & communicate different techniques, as we all learned the nuances with our preemie.” – Jennifer, East Nashville
