Reserving a Triangle Mothercare Daytime Doula
How it works and tips on how to get the most out of your schedule
We will schedule a time to contact you for a phone or in-home consultation when it's best for you. During this time we will go over all our services, pricing and how our services can best help you and your family.
Our Schedule Coodinator will then reach out to you to discuss our availability based on your family's needs. You will receive a profile of one of our available Doulas as well as dates/times she is available to meet with you and your family at your home.
You will meet our available Doula and make sure she is a good fit for your family.
We can then move on with reserving your schedule! You can relax in knowing you and your family will be taken care of by the best!
We know how important it is to families to trusted and consistent team of support. Once you meet and decide who you would like to have support your family they are reserved just for you. We like to schedule one Doula or Night Nurse with families.
Tip #1 - It is never too early or too late to reserve our services! However, by contacting us early you will have the benefit of greater availability.
Tip #2 - When considering your support needs and schedule, think about if your family or friends will be offering help. This will help map out your coverage and maximize your support. While the grandparents are taking on the day shifts, we can take on the night shifts so everyone can rest. We can also come over during the day and provide "check in" visits while your family is helping you. There are just so many different ways we can provide support.
Tip #3 - Will you be working from home? A Daytime Doula can be a perfect solution for your child care needs. Since our Doulas are professionally trained to care for infants and newborns, this is the best care option for the early months.
Tip #4 - Let us know as soon as possible if you want to extend your schedule!
