About Us

The solutions offered by THE BABIES SECRET are complete, modern and of extreme confidence allowing parents to make their dream come true of parenthood with full professionalism.

In the past, human birth was marked by the experienced presence of the women in the family: older sisters, aunts, mothers and grandmothers accompanied, instructed and supported the partner and new mother throughout the labor, the birth itself and the care of the newborn.


Currently, births take place in a hospital environment and surrounded by specialists: the obstetrician, the nurse, the pediatrician... each with their own specialty and relevant technical concern. The care for the mother's emotional well-being ended up being lost in the impersonal environment of hospitals, tending to increase the fear, pain and anxiety of the one giving birth and consequently increasing obstetric complications and the need for further interventions.


The doula came precisely to fill this gap, supplying the demand for emotion and affection at this moment of intense importance and vulnerability. It is the rescue of a practice that existed before the institutionalization and medicalization of childbirth care, which is now being encouraged with scientific support.


The results of doula support have brought surprising insights into the reduction of interventions and obstetric complications, as well as facilitating the bond between mother and baby in the postpartum period.


THE BABIES SECRET besides providing Doula Support, work with parents and childcare providers in solving sleeping problems in children’s with our Sleep Training Consultant and coaching nannies to thrive in their profession through courses were nannies will be able to grow their businesses and obtain more knowledge in their area. We are passionate about elevating childcare!
