THIS IS IT. The magic moment you imagined from your first look at that positive pregnancy test.
You, at home with your precious baby in your arms. baby at breast, your baby is feeding contently and your doting partner is meeting your every need. The house is in order, you are rested, nourished and hydrated and the scent of lavender wafts through your home. Meals are planned for the week, the gentle hum of the dryer affirms that the last load of laundry is almost complete and the thank you notes have all been sealed, stamped and sent to your loved ones.
That is what you imagined because THAT is what bringing a new baby SHOULD look like!
Here’s the thing, the most common one liner we hear when we explain what postpartum doula support actually looks like is…
“Where were you when I had my baby…”
But you’re not “one of those people.” You matter and you know it! And because of that, you’re here, in our nest, the Omaha Baby Nest where becoming a mother, matters.

Here’s the thing, the most common one liner we hear from clients of the Omaha baby Nest is… “Who would bring a new baby home without you?!”

This package is 150 hours.
Recovery and healing are best done with the support of healthy nutrition. But preparing meals while taking care of a newborn is next to impossible. In home meal prep, customized to your dietary wishes and requirements will enable you to enjoy nutritious meals simply by opening the freezer and warming them up! This 4 HOUR visit will leave you with 20- 30 portions of a variety of easy to reheat meals. A few days before your shift, we will discuss any allergies, dislikes and favorite meals. Trust me...you need this!
Breastfeeding, as easy as it may seem, often requires some additional support. Whether you are brand new at it or some new complications have revealed themselves, our Certified Lactation Counselor can be in your home working through it by your side while offering weight checks for peace of mind. Often times, just a small amount of professional support is all that is needed to reach your infant feeding goals.
