Post Partum Newborn Specialists
What is a Newborn Care Specialist?
Previously known as a baby nurse, a Newborn care specialist is an experienced trained infant/newborn specialist who comes into your home in the first weeks of your infants life to assist mom and dad with the day-to-day care of their new baby. Newborn care specialist work 24-hour days, meaning, they are on-call at all times to care for the baby. A baby nurse educates the new parents on caring for their new infant, assists in establishing a routine eating/sleeping/wake schedule for the baby and provides lactation consulting to breastfeeding mothers. We represent the top Newborn Care Specialist across the country who come with letters of recommendation an extensive list of previous clients that you are welcome to see and call.
What is the difference between a Doula and a Newborn Care Specialist?
A baby Nurse and a Doula are not to be confused. A doula wears many hats and does not have the extensive training that a Newborn care specialist has. A doula does the cooking, cleaning, cares for the post-partum mother and also helps with the baby. A Newborn care specialist specifically is an infant specialist and educator to the new parents regarding their new baby. A Newborn care specialist doesn't do any housekeeping and their sole responsibility is providing top-notch professional care to your new infant.
