Marcia Horbacio

Marcia Horbacio is the owner and founder of Nannies and Doulas On Call (NDC), a company that specializes in caring for mothers and babies during their newborn's first few months.

Marcia is a Certified Sleep Consultant, a Certified Postpartum Doula specializing in newborn multiples, and she is part of the faculty of International Maternity Institute in California (IMI) USA, where she teaches their 'Maternity and Child Sleep Consultant' program in Portuguese.

International Maternity Institute Certificate



Nannies and Doulas On Call originated as a nanny and doula agency in January 2010. However, with the increased need for postpartum professional services and sleep consulting services, NDC is now a doula group and a sleep consulting service exclusively, so no longer provides nanny services.

Marcia also offers sleep workshops for parents and has taught more than 1000 families on how to make their sleep healthier.

Marcia is married to John Horbacio and has four children of her own: Gabriel is married at 33 years of age, Diego, is married at 28 years of age, Lucas is married at 24 years of age and Igor is single at 21 years of age.


Marcia's mother Genira is her greatest inspiration who taught Marcia the benefits of breastfeeding her 4 children in a peaceful environment.

Genira lives far away in Brazil, Marcia's home country, but she remains very close to Marcia's heart.
