Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
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.
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
I just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth is fantastic! She is great with the boys, and so helpful with such a calm and pleasant way of being. We are so happy with her.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
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.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
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.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
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.
