Newborn Care Specialists

Newborn Care Specialists

The Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) is a trained professional, qualified in all areas of newborn care specializing in birth to three months. Some people may refer to a NCS as a nanny, baby nurse, or night nurse. A NCS is a non-medical professional. Their responsibilities will be to provide up to date information in baby care and provide you with as much hands-on support as you may need caring for your newborn. They’re trained to help with many tasks. Such as guidance in swaddling, diapering, circumcision and cord care, baby baths, baby massage, feeding, burping, assisting with breastfeeding (including use of breastpumps), how to calm a fussy baby and baby laundry.

The presence of a NCS provides immeasurable benefits, including increased confidence as a new parent, reduced postpartum depression, more successful breastfeeding, rest for the new mother and reduced recovery time.

Many families find a NCS as a perfect solution for providing your family with transitional support from hospital to home.

Families may choose to have our NCS assist them overnight. You may find this especially helpful if you are the parents of multiples. You can also schedule short term childcare to run errands, have a day or evening out, or when your regular childcare falls through.

“It was such a great experience to have you here.  Thank you doesn’t seem to sum up my gratitude enough.  Our Beginning with Baby appointment was the best and most professional experience related to our birth.  We could not have gotten through it without your support! I am still breastfeeding and plan to continue until she is about one year old.”
