Honoring The Tenderness Of Those Sweet Newborn Days While Guiding New Moms & Dads Into Parenthood With Confidence.

What Is A Newborn Care Specialist?

Formally known as a “night nurse” or “baby nurse”, a Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) is an individual who is professionally trained to provide postpartum care assistance to families. While an NCS also supports families through postpartum recovery, the primary focus is on newborn care and parental education. Your NCS is there to nurture and care for your baby while establishing healthy feeding and sleeping routines.

NCS are usually knowledgable in many areas of surrounding newborns, conquering sleeping struggles and helping moms and dads seamlessly transition into parenthood. Carrying for multiples, preemies, babies with GURD/reflux struggles, and providing breastfeeding support make having an NCS so valuable in those early days with baby. A skilled NCS will not only be able to create healthy routines for baby, but will also work towards getting baby to sleep through the night!
