As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
Indera is just wonderful. She is always happy and clearly loves her job. She is kind and fun and as for the practicalities, she is always on time and very flexible.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
We’ve been very happy with Amber! She is so sweet with our son, proactive, a huge help around the house, engaging, and super creative with coming up with activities for him. So glad we hired her.
I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
The quality of candidates was very good. It was a difficult decision but Amy has proven to be a wonderful choice. We could not have found a better person. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a nanny.
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
According to DONA International, the term doula is derived from the ancient Greek term that literally means “woman’s servant.” Doulas have played an important role in history, serving as trusted labor and birth companions, supporting a woman through the childbirth experience and just beyond.
Many expecting women choose to hire a doula to provide physical, emotional and intellectual support through the childbirth process. Doulas are typically trained and experienced in childbirth and the immediate non-medical postpartum care of women.
A birth doula provides physical and emotional support to expecting and birthing women. Doulas may serve as educators, providing expecting women with the information they can use to make informed decisions and as labor coaches, providing backrubs and encouragement during the birthing process. Doulas may also assist clients in creating their birth plan.
Although doulas do not provide medical care or support, doulas have been credited with helping to create a better birth experience, faster labors and less frequent uses of pain medications as they provide comfort and support to laboring women.
Postpartum doulas provide families with support as they adjust to life with a new baby. For the first few weeks after birth, postpartum doulas can help parents transition to parenthood by providing information they can use to make informed decisions for their new baby and by empowering them to feel confident in their new roles as mom and dad.
Postpartum doulas support the entire family as they welcome their newest member home. A postpartum doula may help care for younger siblings, do light housekeeping and meal preparation and take on other tasks so that the new mother feels supported, rested and encouraged as she embraces her new role.
