Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
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.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
I had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
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.
