Frequently Asked Questions

Hiring a doula is an investment that brings a wealth of benefits. For that reason, we’re happy to discuss payment plan options to ensure the needs of your whole family are met. Please note that a deposit is required for all packages to reserve your place in our schedule. 

While the needs of every family vary, on average, our families book us for 2-3 days per week, for a duration anywhere from 1-4 months. For shorter care options, our virtual doula support package is designed with you in mind. 

We invite you to get in touch to discuss what you’re looking for, so we can create a care package that best supports you.

Absolutely! Babies don’t typically eat and fall right back to sleep. Instead, they need to be burped, diapered, rocked, and comforted multiple times each night. When Fika Newborn is with you, your baby will be brought to you for their feeding. If you need lactation support during this time, we’ll be there to assist.

While we work day and night to serve your newborn and family, we’re not medical professionals. Our continuous learning and specialized training qualify us to deliver essential postpartum care, feeding education and support, and newborn and infant care. 

We’re low maintenance. If we’ll be serving as your overnight doula, we ask for a place to sit and also rest (a bed or comfortable surface). As long as you’re willing to be in this spot for a night, we will be, too! For families who wish us to attend to low-key tasks when the baby is sleeping, it’s helpful to have a video monitor so we can always have an eye on them.

If you’re looking to hire a doula for in-person services, we encourage you to reach out as soon as possible to start the conversation, with the goal of hiring your preferred provider by week 20 of pregnancy.

Yes! After years of working in the industry, I’ve cultivated a village of trusted doulas. Once you inquire, we’ll discuss availability of services. And from there, if there’s a need, I’ll share my list of doula partners along with their contact information.

At Fika Newborn, we’re committed to staying current with the latest developments in newborn and postpartum care practices. For a list of our certifications, please visit our About page

Happily! Local clients will have access to Fika Newborn’s lending library of books and baby carriers, including Baby K’tan, Solly Baby, and WildBird. Also, we’ve cultivated a trusted network of industry professionals/providers to give you the full-range of care you need and deserve – from birth centers to pediatricians, chiropractors, and physical therapists offering pelvic rehabilitation.

For virtual clients, you can expect to receive a list of vetted products to best prepare you to care for your baby at home.

“One of the best parts of my day in the weeks following giving birth was when Terese walked in the door.”

She gave me some much-needed relief in the haze of postpartum to get some sleep and space. Not only that but she came with resource recommendations, helped me come up with a sleep schedule for my daughter, and was a calming, reassuring, and friendly presence in the weeks following giving birth. 


“She was so informative and answered all our questions and then some.”

When she left, I couldn't believe how much more prepared I felt for parenting our little bundle of joy. 


“Terese was such a great resource as a first-time mom."

Terese was great with my son and in the beginning, when I just needed some time to myself to sleep or shower or brush my teeth, I felt totally comfortable letting Terese handle everything.
