“So this is what it looks like for a typical night with our postpartum nighttime doula,” Bright says in the clip. “First I get the baby ready for bed by getting him clean, getting his essential oils on and burning and prepping bottles for the doula to give him overnight.”
“She arrives at 8 p.m.,” Bright adds in the clip. “At that point, I retreat to my bedroom where 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. is my time, free of all children.”
“And then after a good night’s sleep, I go and relieve the doula at 6 a.m.,” Bright continues. “And that is what it’s like.”

Many commenters on the video criticized Bright for hiring a postpartum night doula.
“Nope,” one person wrote. “No. The days fly by and these middle of the night feeds are so special in the early days.”
