Second Night Help(approx 8 hours) $400
The 2nd or 3rd night after the baby is born is typically a really hard night. Between the sleep-less nights before labor, labor and delivery and then the adrenaline of meeting your new baby and entertaining visitors, you are exhausted. This tends to coincide with the baby getting hungrier and wanting to "bring your milk in" all night long!
It is essential to have good breastfeeding support throughout this night. I can help you get some rest and feed your baby at the same time, while watching for your infant's safety. Unfortunately you're not guaranteed great breastfeeding support in the hospital; and the nurses definitely don't have the time to sit and watch you rest while you feed your baby; so having your own support can be key!
This is also a big help for your partner. He/she has been worried about you and they need some sleep as well before the big discharge day.
