HYGGE MATERNITY CARE: THE SCANDINAVIAN WAY
Our founder truly embraces her Scandinavian heritage, and believes that every baby should be snuggled and cozy when they arrive home.
Scandinavians live for that special feeling of cozy or "hygge" in the home. This means having comfortable, confident and relaxed parents and surroundings when your baby arrives. We have baby nurses who can teach families how to wrap the perfect swaddle for maximum snuggle or "hygge" and help design your nursery and environment to be comfortable for everyone.
We believe that raising happy, healthy babies and children requires just the right amount of feeding, sleeping and playing "lagom" or contentment. We also believe that creating as natural a nursery environment as possible, creates a healthier environment for babies to grow and thrive, and we are happy to assist families in selecting organic and natural toys and baby products for their little ones.
Kathryn “Kate” Leaf Wallace, LPN
I’m a Boston nurse with over twenty years of infant and childcare experience. I love incorporating my Scandinavian heritage into this “hygge baby” model of care for mammas, pappas and their babes. I believe that every mamma and pappa deserves the support of experts in the coziness of their own home over a cup of delicious coffee to help them easily and comfortably transition into new parenthood.
I hold a masters degree in healthcare leadership from Brown University, and certificates in breastfeeding counseling, childbirth education and birth doula. I have been sleep training singletons and multiples since nursing school, and I love watching well rested, happy babies grow and thrive.
Our oldest daughter is three years old, and she's been sleep trained since two months old to sleep through the night. Our baby is eight months old, and she’s done the same thing. They’re my personal proof, that sleep training does work, and does create happy, easy babies. I live with my husband and daughters, Karoline Astrid and Elisabeth Ingrid outside of Boston.
We have wonderful, certified birth doulas who are available to meet all of your antepartum, and birth needs. Our birth doulas provide two virtual antepartum visits, and are available when labor starts by phone, until your babe arrives and you are settled. We provide one virtual postpartum visit as well.
Postpartum doula care is available for as long as needed at an additional cost in-person.
Virtual birth doula package: $600
Postpartum doula rate: $45 hr
OVERNIGHT BABY CARE NURSING
Our baby nurses can provide overnight baby nursing to your newest addition(s). They provide overnight feedings, and sleep support for baby and parents. Once a healthy baby is 6-8 weeks old and at least 12 lbs. we are able to begin sleep training as well. We provide overnight baby care as well as consultations to new parents related to sleep training and support.
Our overnight baby nurses are a team comprised of nursing school students, graduates and newborn care specialists with years of experience working with newborns and babies. We are experts in birth, breastfeeding and postpartum care. We will help make your transition to home extra cozy and comfortable.
Singletons are $325 per night, Twins are $350 per night and Triplets are $375 per night. Cozy Sleep Consultations are $100 per hour by phone.
TODDLER CRAFT KITS
We’re so excited to now be offering monthly craft kits for 2-4 year olds!
I wanted to share the crafts and projects we’re doing, and make it easier for other parents as well. Working from home during this pandemic has thrown everyone into a tailspin, and the more we can help each other take a breath, the better off we will all be as parents. I believe it really does take a Village.
Our monthly craft kits are simple, easy, and pre-cut, and include everything you need except things not easily shipped (like paint, scissors, and tape---the basics you most likely already have at home for your kiddos). I’ve also included two of my favorite, easy hygge recipes for parents to try.
CRAFT KIT COST: $40 for 1 kid, $65 for 2 kids, and $80 for 3 kids
Fika Consults + Classes
We provide virtual new parents-to-be with birthing and baby care classes so you can feel confident when your baby(ies) arrive. We meet in the coziness of your own home via Zoom, and have Swedish coffee and pastries delivered to you by a local bakery, just like the fika coffee breaks new parents enjoy in Scandinavia. Cozy sweaters and socks are encouraged!
Our birthing and baby care classes or consultations include: childbirth classes, sleep training basics, newborn essentials, breastfeeding basics, managing multiples and newborn nursery preparation.
Birthing and baby care classes run for two hours and are $300 with coffee and pastries provided and pregnancy consultations are $175 per hour.
