As I’m sure everyone in the industry familiar with baby nurse culture knows, there are countless families who want to hire someone full-time and seriously underpay that person. Yes, there is a lot of competition for clientele but by slashing prices you are undervaluing yourself. We have been in this business for over a decade and have witnessed countless new and seasoned postpartum doulas and newborn child care specialists get underpaid. Competition in cities like New York, Philadelphia, and beyond can be fierce, but there is another way to stand out from the competition. We reccomend investing in a professional development course to help build skills, gain confidence, and make more money as a postpartum doula/NCS/ nanny.

Working With Twins
With our Magical Octopus course, you can learn all the secrets to caring for two or more babies at once! If you feel confident caring for one baby, but you want to really blow new parents away with your expertise and aplomb, this course is it. You might even be able to get some sleep on those twin overnights while the babies snooze sweetly!
Devon Clement has worked with close to 100 sets of twins (and triplets!) and has figured out tons of “baby juggling” secrets. Join her for this 90-minute* video class – with live Q&A at the end – and learn them all.
Newborn Sleep Teleseminar
This audio workshop is for anyone who works overnight with new babies – or wants to! Devon will teach you how to gently work on babies’ developmental ability to put themselves to sleep and stay asleep for long stretches until they’re sleeping through the night! She also talks about what working overnights looks like as a Newborn Care Specialist/Postpartum Doula, and some issues you may encounter. By the end of this class, you’ll know how to get a baby to sleep 10-12 hours a night by 3-4 months old, and your clients will LOVE you for it!
